Update On Lin's Cabin Renovation

May 03, 2015

A few months ago, Tom Lin replaced the rain-damaged sections of the outer walls of the cabin. Mr. Lin was inspired to have Tom apply a preservative stain to the entire outer walls of the cabin after he finished repairing the wood. Sand has been transported and carried up to the cabin for the floor of the cement foundation to be evened out in preparation for laying tile--Mr. Lin's latest decision. We'll post more photos as the work progresses. We're excited for the first gathering at the cabin once it's done!

Mr. Zhang's father cultivated tea on their homesteaded land in Xiaobantian, on the southside of Lugu Township, where he grew up in the midst of traditional tea making. At 20 something, he decided to embody his local tradition by clearing land to cultivate his own plot of tea. For the last 20 years, he has managed his own humble, privately owned plot of tea. Throughout this period, he also acquired seasonal work in tea factories in Lugu, Shanlinxi, Alishan, Fanzaitian, and Lishan. In a word, he learned the ropes of tea making in a comprehensive way, like most tea farmers of his generation. Lugu hosts the highest concentration of tea makers in Taiwan, and is a hub of specialty tea making culture.

Eco-Cha Tea Club: Charcoal Roasted High Altitude Oolong Tea Tasting Notes

Tea grown at high altitude is known for its substantial composition and smooth texture, particularly when the leaves have been sufficiently oxidized. This batch of tea offers that creamy texture and subtle complexity of flavor as a base, with a pronounced charcoal roasted component at the forefront.
