From TTNews Reporter Ron Hong
Meishan town, Chiayi City--

The first area of growing mountain tea is Chiayi Meishan town.

It started to grow tea in Longyanlin. For the past twenty years, the tea fields have been expanding.

Now, there are seven villages which are Taiping, Longyan, Bihu, Taising, Rueili, Rueifeng, and Taihe to be developed to grow tea. Most Tea fields are on the hillsides. You may also see some terraced tea fields.

70% sorts of tea trees are Qingsiin Oolong and 30% are Jinsiyuan. The tea grows at an elevation from 800 to 1300 meters. The tea fields cover an area of 1200 hectares. The annual output is 240,000 kilograms. There are tea harvests through the whole year. The tea cultivated in winter and spring has the best qualities and the best prices

 Oolong tea trees were grown on the plains in early years. Later, farmers succeeded in cultivating Oolong tea trees on the hillsides. The color of Mountain Oolong Tea is honey yellow and the taste is delicate and refreshing. Because of Mountain Oolong Tea is different from original Oolong Tea, Oolong tea becomes popular for young people.

嘉義梅山鄉烏龍茶、金萱茶
【大台灣旅遊網TTNews記者洪榕/嘉義縣】

 嘉義梅山鄉是台灣最早開發的高山茶區,一九七五年至「鹿谷凍頂」學習種茶、製茶,回到「梅山龍眼林」種下台灣高山茶的重要歷史時刻,三年後梅山鄉的青心烏龍茶收成上市後,立即吹起一股高山烏龍茶的炫風。

 梅山鄉自龍眼林開始種茶以來,這二十幾年間面積不斷在擴大中,自太平山東面起,包括有太平、龍眼、碧湖、太興、瑞里、瑞峰、太和等等七個村莊都開發種茶,茶園大多是在山坡地,有的茶園開發成梯田狀。

 茶樹品種百分之七十是青心烏龍、百分之三十是金萱茶,種植海拔八百到一千三百公尺,面積一千兩百公頃,年產量為二十四萬公斤,茶獲一年四季都有,以冬、春季茶的品質與價格最好,主要為內銷台灣本島市場,是當地農民主要經濟來源。

 台灣烏龍茶早期種植於平地,茶葉的烘焙方式以重焙火,後慢慢的開始嘗試種於高海拔的山區,高山烏龍培育成功,製茶方式以輕焙火為主,茶湯是蜜黃色,味道清香高雅、入喉甜淡回甘,在台灣市場上頗受年輕一代歡迎,因此台灣烏龍茶漸漸的走出了「老人茶」的印象,開啟了年輕市場的新紀元。
