Brew a cup of aromatic tea in Taiwan

Tea is an integral part of Taiwan’s history and culture and it is grown in every region, sold in every corner of the country. Since the 1600s, the custom of drinking tea has been a part of the Taiwanese culture and till today it is served during business negotiations, friendly meetings and wedding banquets. For tea lovers and connoisseurs across the world, Oolong tea is highly recommended as it also has several health benefits.

Drinking tea is considered to foster a sense of national pride among the Taiwanese. The tea industry is also the most financially productive industry in Taiwan. Tourists can visit the Ping-Lin Tea museum which is the world’s largest museum situated in the hills of Pinglin District in New Taipei. Ping-Lin is only one hour’s drive from downtown Taipei. Renowned for producing Pouchong tea, ‘Ping-Lin’ museum is opened every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends.

Amongst, the most famous teas in Taiwan are the organic Lishan tea. There is only one organic Lishan tea farmer who supplies organic Lishan oolong tea and organic Lishan black tea: both of them CAS certified and NCHU certified organic. The tea garden is located at the height of 2,000 meters. The Lishan black tea is made from small leaf Chinxing oolong tea cultivar, which is used to make Lishan oolong tea too. Chinxing oolong cultivar was imported and planted in Taiwan from 19th Century. The black tea made from Chinxing oolong of low elevation has sugarcane aroma and taste, when it has flower taste and aroma from high elevation tea gardens. Chinxing oolong from middle elevation of tea gardens has fruit taste and aroma. Lishan black tea is rare in production. Because the prices of Lishan oolong teas are high, so most of Lishan tea farmers only make Lishan oolong teas. This Lishan black tea was successfully promoted in London, three years ago. Served at the Rosebury Lounge in Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park London; this black tea has won the 2nd award at the hotel. And the Lishan black tea is ranged as top grade black tea in the world. Chinxing oolong can be multiple steeping and still keep its original taste after several steeps. Its tea liquor is in orange black color with rose aroma. It tastes sweet with strong aroma.

In Taiwan, tourists can also experience the tea ceremony in the museum’s traditional Chinese garden that features rockeries and pavilions to enjoy the unique flavor of high-quality tea. The ceremonies are usually performed in a tranquil environment to create the aroma for tea appreciation. The ceremony has numerous stages. In Chinese tradition, many classical art practices feature tea ceremony that is linked to calligraphy, flower arts and incense arts.

An eclectic selection of teas fills the Taiwanese air with fragrance. Brew it and live the complete experience of Taiwan!
