DaYuLing Spring Tea making date is 5/10 to 6/5.it is over, so share it with you.
At present, there are only 95k, 98k, 100k, 101k, and 103k left tea farmers in DaYuLing, and the total amount of spring tea is about 4,000 Taiwan catty(2400kg).
Here are some pictures of 95k’s tea picking and tea making.

View from 95k in the early morning.There are Lishan, Huagang, Fushoushan and Tianfu is opposite to DaYuLing.

Hand plucking tea leaves
Taiwan high mountain tea is basically hand-harvested.

Spread the fresh tea leaves

The tea stalks of tea leaves are longer is DaYuLing Tea characteristic .

indoor withering
Image
Traditional rolling
If tea stalks are not exposed, it is not DaYuling tea.

Next harvest will begin in early August and then I shared more photos with you.

Where can I buy 101k and 103k DYL as a Westener? :cry:
The previous source I had no longer carries them this year, only 93k and 95k.

The difference in taste is often not so noticeable... I wouldn’t worry too much about numbers. What matters is how it tastes.

And if anyone is still offering “real” DYL I would be very sceptical and be cautious.

This is real 95k DaYuLing Tea. I am DaYuLing tea farmer.
I think this kind of tea still goes to farm.After you drink it,you decide whether to buy it or not.
If someone are looking for DayuLing tea,please contact me before harvesting.

Wow, an endorsement from a just signed up user with English that points to a non-native speaker...

No one was saying anything about the tea being real or not, but now it certainly looks suspicious.

@Bok, I've visited the garden in question and the 95K factory. Both are genuine. This is one of the 5 remaining DYL gardens. Nonetheless, being suspicious is the prudent thing to do; there is far more DYL on the market than can possibly be produced by these 5 growers.

in defense of the testimonial in question... its poster's IP address geolocates to a different country than that of the OP, FWIW.
believe me, it was scrutinized a little before approval.

I am real 95k farmer,and just teaching what is DaYuLing tea in here.

Next time you go to Lishan to buy tea.
Don't just pass by. Come in here.


Alas! Too many people are selling fake tea these days, and even true tea farmers will be suspected.

Sorry about that, no harm intended! As you say, too much fakes around...
