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.

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.
