Sourced from Mr. Wang, a 3rd generational farmer in the Chiayi, Alishan region, famous for owning one of the highest peak in the mountain region of Alishan at 1300m. His tea journey started when his grandfather purchased the land from the native Taiwanese tribe, and made a pivot from selling fruits to planting tea trees.
