Spring Harvest 2014 Report #6 - The Weather's Fine As Harvest Climbs!

April 18, 2014

The weather this spring continues to be ideal during harvest season. Almost no rain has allowed farmers to remain on schedule and not have to postpone the timing of their harvest. We are crossing our fingers that it will hold out as the elevation of harvest locations continues to climb. In Southern Nantou County, harvest has reached 1200-1400m, although some of our friends at 700-800m in this area have yet to pick and process their spring leaves. The cold and dry start to the growing season has affected varying micro-climates differently. Stay tuned for more detailed harvest reports from Taiwan...

And we got a full week of good weather toward the end of the month, which turned out to be perfect timing for both our Shan Lin Xi and Alishan High Mountain Oolong sources.

We feel that the constitution of these tea leaves that were grown at high altitude with optimal farming methods, and crafted by some of the top tea producers in the industry, is what makes this batch so special. We cherish both the knowledge and the quality tea that Mr. Zhuang generously shared with us. We will miss him dearly.
