Detail

    Fulu Tea has the greatest cultivation area in the Huatung area, including Yongan Village and Longtien Village in Luye Township, and Yongkang Village in Yanping Township. The annual output of Fulu Tea can reach as high as four hundred tons. Fulu Tea is also known as "President’s Tea" because the former President Lee Deng-Hui paid a visit to the area in 1982, greatly appreciated the tea flavor, and named the tea "Fulu tea" in response to the request of naming it. In 2005, Fulu Tea won the Taiwan Tea Championship, defeating many kinds of mountain tea planted in high altitude. 

     Because spring is warmer on the eastern part of Taiwan than in the west, tea trees sprout earlier and the harvest season is also longer in winter. Comparing to other areas, tea farms in the eastern part of Taiwan can harvest two times more. It is also why there are special early spring Fulu tea and late winter Fulu tea. At the moment, besides the main kind of Fulu tea, Oolong, there are also Jinxuan, Jade Oolong, Foshou Oolong, Sijichun and Assam, etc.
