Selling that Dayuling? :wink:

Even more truth is that the top-grade Dayuling and Fushou shan teas never even make it into the public market in Taiwan… The presidential Mafia and the real Mafia are the only ones with access to those teas (And the farmers themselves of course) :mrgreen:

The corresponding tea leaves are those on the right.

The name comes from the kilometer location where the
tea garden is found on road that crosses this mountain range in central Taiwan.

Taiwanese use a different name for this type of Gaoshan: 高冷茶 (Gao leng cha) because it is grown at more than 2000m (105K at 2500 m).

Almost all teashops in Taiwan and many on the internet claim to sell Da Yu Ling.

The truth is this tea is very rare and probably extremely hard to find outside Taiwan. 105K is a relatively small tea garden. There are others in the same area, at lower altitude. In any case, the total production is small and no one grows tea organically there, otherwise it would not be profitable enough (do not believe those stories that at high altitude there are no plagues to fight and therefore everything is organic. You still need fertilizers because the soil is very poor in nutrients up there).

Apparently, I heard (but still have not confirmed) that new government regulations will ban cultivation in most Taiwan mountains at high altitudes, but they say that 105K will be spared.

That list is kind of a joke... Wolf tea for one has mediocre seriously over priced tea, aimed at young people who do not know better or do not want to buy tea where their parents do :mrgreen:

There are many many teashops all over the country, to reduce it to these few, some quite touristy, is ridiculous.

I do not know, I buy my teas in local shops in Taiwan, which do not sell online.
