Higher elevation farmers that we've asked have all said that it has been a late season (longer winter), but so far conditions are favorable for spring harvest. They estimate that harvest will simply be one or two weeks later than usual. Farms at around 1000m elevation in Nantou County are preparing to harvest in the second week of April. At 1500m, harvest will begin in the beginning of May. Higher elevations will be later yet, so presumably the highest farms on Lishan and Dayuling will not be harvested until mid-June.

We recently visited Mr. Liu when we hosted a visitor from Italy who was keen on experiencing the local tea culture. Our guest was truly elated to be served tea by a true artisan of the trade. Mr. Liu served us three different teas that were all locally harvested this past spring. They varied only in their degree oxidation and roasting. And the one that was sufficiently oxidized, but only lightly roasted, immediately impressed us.
