ShanLinXi 杉林溪 (Sunlinksea) tea is part of High mountain tea in Taiwan, which is at the altitude of 1,800-1,850 meter. Due to the high altitude, heavy mist and southern slope, the tea in Long-fone Xia ( means Dragon Phoenix Gorge杉林溪龍鳳峽) has smooth taste and Gao Shan Shi (high mountain fragrance). The tea farmer, Mr. Li uses organic fertilizer for tea trees, such as milk and shells of soybean. He thinks 'what we eat is what we get', especially tea is our daily, so these tea trees need to be fed by natural fertilizer. His tea farm is one of the biggest one in ShanlinXi (Sunlinksea).
The scale of tea factory is huge, where can accommodate 400 to 500 kg tea per day, that is contributed by 60 to 70 tea pickers. Due to the steep of terrain, their tea need to be picked by hand rather than by machine. Furthermore, it can control the quality of tea leaves. It is a tiring work which spent as least 24 hours. As long as realizing the tea manufacturing process, I cherish tea more. Everytime, when I drink a cup of good tea, I always cherish the moment and appreciate those people who make these nice tea.
