Terroir: SanXia District in New Taipei City is the only green tea growing region in Taiwan. Located at the altitude of 300m, the tea trees are growing on a leeward side of hills, surrounded by mountains on three sides and overlooking the Dahan River Plain. The mountain surrounding creates an ideal misty environment for tea trees and helps them to produce tender, flavourful tea leaves and buds.
