Introducing 'Promote Sustainability - Get Great Tea' The Eco-Cha Indiegogo Campaign

October 25, 2014

We’re really happy to release this news. We’ve just launched an Indigogo campaign aimed at supporting the traditional, small-scale tea industry in Taiwan.

Mr. Lin went from a self-run local farm to large-scale tea cultivation, and is now returning to his family land to grow organic tea and cure it in his home factory.

The goal of this campaign is to purchase Mr. Lin’s inaugural harvest and make it available exclusively to the backers. We’ll also produce a video documentary on the entire process of setting up this farm, from inspection and certification to harvest and processing.

Please have a look at the video, which explains everything in detail, and has some great shots of tea making!

There are lots of different perks available from a sample of the tea all the way to a week long tour of Taiwan’s tea country.

It's a proper Oolong in its complexity, and a signature bug-bitten batch of tea.

A mom, dad, and son team manage their small family farm and process their crops on their own. And the recent spring harvest offered the pleasant surprise of one day's harvest turning out to be Honey Oolong. This name is properly used when the flavor of the tea has a distinct honey character that results from the Green Leafhopper working its magic. The Leafhopper (jacobiasca formosana) is a tiny green bug that likes to feed on the sap of the tender new leaf buds.

As the specialty tea industry rapidly gains popularity around the world, topics like this one are increasingly mentioned in blogposts, newsfeeds, and on social media platforms. Unfortunately, this type of commentary is mostly hearsay, and lacks objectivity. It was just such a post that recently prompted us to offer a more thorough perspective from the industry here in Taiwan.
