Re: Taiwanese Old Growth Tea Theft

I thought it is illegal to harvest wild tea trees in general in Taiwan... ? Not too sure where you heard this but the trees in question are on aboriginal reserve land and land use rights are granted to the lease holder. There is also a permitting auction system that has been implemented for many ar...

Re: Taiwanese Old Growth Tea Theft

How does this leasing system work, whereby outside people can come to own the right to harvest from aboriginal land? Mountain Stream Teas, your partner farmer is paying ... the Taiwanese government? the aborigines? Two different systems. The permit auction is for the National Forest Land controlled...

Taiwanese Old Growth Tea Theft

Hi All, This week our partner farm had their winter pick stolen off the trees in the mountains of the Liugui region in south-western Taiwan. The trees in that area are between 100-200 years old and thankfully there was minimal damage to the trees themselves. The trees are on aboriginal reserve land ...

Re: Mountain Streams Teas Launch Date and Spring Tea Adventure

Re: Small Batch(~30kg) Ripe Puer Processing Resources

Thanks for the tips and I am currently talking with Valerii. What an amazing resource! I didn't think artisanal shou was even possible. Hopefully I can learn enough to start something.

Small Batch(~30kg) Ripe Puer Processing Resources

Hi All,

Easy to find info on 1000kg batches but finding info on smaller 'piles' has been tough. Will be attempting ripe processing using maocha in the 20-30kg range. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Taiwan Tea No.24!

Not a taste for everyone though! That probably means it is a rather boring tea... I would suspect that with lower caffeine, the tea also being less rich. Kind of like alcohol free beer or caffeine free coffee which are both never really satisfying... My experience with wild teas in Taiwan has been ...

Re: Puer-esque teas from Taiwan

Having stayed in Taroko Gorge for 4 days, I find it interesting that you source tea from the aboriginal villages there. Although I do spend over 150 days a year in the Taroko Gorge National Park and surrounding mountains I have never claimed that I source tea from there. There is no tea in Taroko G...

Re: Taiwan Tea No.24!

It got announced! As someone who has dabbled in camellia formosensis production more than the average I find it funny that they got the certs for that tea. I have it on the site right now and it is the least consistent tea tree imaginable. As you walk down a row of these trees in their cultivated st...

Re: Puer-esque teas from Taiwan

Thanks for sharing this very interesting information and video Mountain Stream Teas. I enjoy a LiShan from Nantou/Taichung that is from old growth trees, the deep roots really do produce exceptional teas, mineral rich, sustaining multiple steeps. I see you are in Hualien, Taiwan; one of the best re...
