What is DaYuLing Tea?

by youchenhe » Jun 22nd 19 9:52 am

I am DaYuLing 95k tea farmer.
And I have a responsibility to let everyone know about DaYuLing tea.

There are a lot of questions about DaYuLing tea, but my conscience suggests that no matter what area of tea, what kind of tea, if you have the ability, you should go to the production area and go first.
Even if you go to the place to buy tea, there is still a high chance that you will encounter a liar, not to mention the fact that you did not go to the place to buy tea.

Because we buy tea, we must first know where the place of production is, where the characteristics are.
These two things are very important. Because if you don't understand its environment, hydrology, management methods, manufacturing processes, you can never connect the tea you drink with that area, and you can't know whether the tea you drink is the tea of that place.

First of all, most people go to pick the area when they buy tea. Then you can't help but know whether it is DaYuLing tea or some part of Lishan tea, the number of kilometers is used as a benchmark in Provincial Highway No. 8.

For example, I am a 95K tea farmer. My address is 95 kilometers from the Provincial Highway No. 8.
Our village of chief lives in 103 kilometers, so his tea is called 103K DaYuLing Tea.
As long as you are on the Provincial Highway No. 8, you can use the number of kilometers as a title.

Well, knowing this, we can begin to divide the DaYuLing and Lishan tea producing areas! Located 92 to 114 kilometers from the provincial road, I basically call it the DaYuLing Tea Area. The water source is the Bilv River, and the place below 92 kilometers (with the Mulan Bridge as the boundary) is the Lishan Tea Area. The water source used is Hehuan Creek, and the water sources used in these two places are different.

But what everyone needs to know is that the central mountain range of Taiwan is located at the junction of the plates, and we are here in the earthquake-breaking zone and the terrain is rugged. It may be a few hundred meters, and the sunshine conditions, wind field, and soil structure will be different. Therefore, even the tea produced in the same production area has different characteristics.

So what is the taste of DaYuLing Tea?
Because everyone has different opinions, there is no explanation here.
Just let you know that when you buy tea, know more about the place of production, and won’t suffer a great loss.

Cool that you're using the KM from highway as way to communicate the origin. It's the first time I heard of this. I've seen similar ways of communication, but it's mainly use inside the industry, and to a lesser extend to consumers.

Because on our side, the address does not necessarily know where it is. So gradually evolved into the number of kilometers + name to replace the address.

Thank you youchenhe for sharing this information. I have been on the end of trying to source teas from exporters from Taiwan, and have seen teas on their offerings that claim to be DaYuLing tea, but are selling for under 200/kilo. I am not sure whether to trust, although I did sample and taste was sweet. If you know of any good, trusted supplier to work with from Taiwan please let me know. My email is: danclintonco@gmail.com. Thank you.
