The tea industry in Longtan Taoyuan used to be extremely prosperous with hundreds of tea manufactories operating simultaneously. Since the industry collapsed, there are now only a few remain. The fourth-generation-successor of Fuyuan Tea Manufactory Mister Huang Wen-Liang commented on the ups and downs of the tea industry with sorrow. At the peak of “black gold” business, tea production had reached 3 to 4 million jins (1.8 to 2.4 million kilograms). However, due to the loss of exporting competitiveness, production dropped by 90%. Regardless, Fuyuan Tea Factory persisted through the darkest era by the preservation of tradition and tea culture advocacy.
On the ancient road that leads to Fuyuan Tea Manufactory, fields and tea hills where tea pickers work diligently under bamboo hats with highlights of Hakka print cloth create a picturesque view. The founder of Fuyuan Tea Manufactory built it with local materials and introduced mass production with European machineries which are still operating today. The roaring sound of the tea baker tells the story of the once prosperous tea industry.
A sweet smell of cinnamon issues as hot water meets the tea leaves. Take a sip of the tea, a refreshing minty taste takes over your taste bud. Tasting Fuyuan’s signature tea “Hong Yu” (Taiwan Tea No.18) for the first time is absolutely mind-blowing. The effort invested into the tea is beyond description. The detailed guide inside the manufactory allows visitors to learn in-depth about the tea-making process. Other worth-trying teas are Kung Fu Tea “Sour Orange Tea” and Fu Shou Tea “Oriental Beauty Tea”. The green tea of the well received beverage brand Chai Li Won is produced in Fuyuan Tea Manufactory where the commercial is shot. DIY activities like tea-picking, cloth ball rolling, black tea rubbing and tea powder grinding are offered. With the guidance of experienced tea masters, you can learn about tea culture and the making of delicious tea. While seeing how each step of the process is conducted so carefully, your stressed mind is being treated by the aroma of tea.
