Natural Farming on Taiwan
The Hong Yun cultivar is the result of the cross-breeding of the Shancha (Taiwanese wild tea) shrubs from the Huang Shan mountain range
in the Chinese province of Anhui, famous for their black tea named Qimen (also Keemun). Both the “parents” are exceptional, exquisite
teas with unmistakeable character and charming delicacy that are very easy to drink. The same is true about the Hong Yun red tea from
Taiwan. Qimen gave it the fruity undertones of wild cherry that blend beautifully with the sweet honey depth and fullness of the wild
Shancha. The result is a surprisingly balanced and uncomplicated combination of tastes and scents. It has a very smooth, almost velvety
flavour with a colourful range of tones that keep the taste buds busy.
This very tea comes from Mr Lee’s farm, which is near the small town of Yu Chi in the Nantou region, 700 to 1200 meters above the sea. Mr
Lee practices what is called “natural farming” in Taiwan; he grows his tee shrubs without the use of chemical pesticides. The leaves are
picked manually, they are fully oxidised and in the final phases of processing they are not baked in any way.
