Starting in middle of 20th century, Gin Shan is one kind of special varieties of Camellia Sinesis (tea plant) developed through research about 40 years at the Taiwan Tea Agricultural Research center.

Compared with other kinds of teas, Gin Shan is the biggest feature that taste. If it is appropriate to the process, Gin Shan tea can release natural milky aroma, this milky been more obvious after baking. Because of this unique aroma, Gin Shan spreads its popularization to tea lovers rapidly, especially young generation and women. By this strong demand from the market, more and more tea farmers devote to the best way to cultivate the finest Gin Shan tea.
