Fuyuan Tea Manufactory(福源茶廠)
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.
