我們的茶園 (Our Tea Plantation)



        我們的茶園是從1982開始開墾,茶樹位處於海拔2000公尺以上的合歡山山脈中,屬於台灣新興的高山茶區,此處極具高山茶所需極佳天然環境---“終年氣溫低,溫差大,無污染”。茶樹在日夜溫差大、日照時間短的生長環境下,極富含果膠質、茶胺酚、茶胺酸和滿滿的葉綠素,對於身體有較多的營養補充,也由於在這極佳的環境下生長,兒茶素和茶單寧會呈現比例較少的情形,所以我們的茶水(茶湯)甘甜完全不苦澀。
      也因為我們的茶園位於合歡山山脈的深處,此處終年氣溫低,溫差大,才得以讓本高山的茶菁保持極佳的品質。
      我們的茶樹種是屬於烏龍茶種,是青茶中其中的一種茶種。烏龍茶最原先是由中國福建的烏龍茶樹種移種到台灣的凍頂山上後聲名大噪,所以在台灣,大家都習慣統稱烏龍茶為凍頂烏龍茶,而凍頂烏龍茶也深為台灣青茶的代表,外觀呈半球狀,發酵度低,因此我們的茶湯有著琥珀般明亮的茶色,且味道極具溫和如花般的清香。


       Our tea plantation was first cultivated in 1982. The tea trees are located in the Hehuanshan Mountain ranging 2000 meters above sea level. It belongs to Taiwan's newly-developed alpine tea area, which boasts the finest natural environment for growing alpine tea - "The temperature difference is large with absolutely no pollution." The tea trees are rich in “pectin”, “tea phenol”, “alanine” and full of “chlorophyll”. Grown in an area with temperature extremes between day and night, and with only short exposure to the sun, our tea leaves boast higher nutritional supplements than other teas, and because it is grown in this environment, our tea shows lower levels of catechins and tea tannins, making for a sweet taste with no bitterness - hence its nickname, “Tea soup”.
      Because our tea plantation is located in the depths of the Hehuanshan Mountain, where the temperature is low throughout the year and the temperature difference throughout the day is large, the quality of the tea in this mountain can be maintained to an excellent standard.
      Our tea tree species belong to the oolong tea species , a member of the green tea family. Oolong tea was originally named after the oolong tea tree planted in Fujian, China, which became famous after being planted on the Dondin Mountain in Taiwan. Therefore, here in Taiwan everyone calls Oolong tea Dondin Oolong Tea, an emblem of Taiwan green tea. The appearance is hemispherical and the degree of fermentation is low, so our tea is amber in color, and the taste is tremendously gentle and flowery.
