Taiwan Top Ten Famous Tea

Taiwan tea originated from Fujian, China. In the early 1800’s a Fujian tea merchant took some seeds to Taiwan to see how well the plants would grow there. It proved to be very successful. Until now Taiwan tea has a history of more than 200 years. Taiwan’s tea areas are widely distributed, but there are several areas where it is grown in North, Yilan, Huadong, Central, and South tea area. Taiwan has produced many famous teas which have their own character. Taiwan also has their own top ten most famous tea, including: Dongding Oolong, Wenshan Bau Jong Oolong, Oriental Beauty, Songbai Changqing Cha, Alishan Zhulucha, Taiwan high mountain tea, Sun-Moon Lake black tea, Muzha tie guan yin, Sanxia Dragon well, Longquancha.

Very informative. I’m fascinated by the migration of Assam tea to Taiwan. It’s nice to know seeds have gone in both directions (and not just from China to Darjeeling!).
