2011 TOST - Arriving Alishan (10/18/2011)
Our drivers (total 3 vans) told us that they have made at least 36 sharp turns all the way to climb to this small village - Ruili in Meishan Hsiang, Chiayi County right located in a fairly matured Alishan tea district. This area known for Jin Suang cultivars since Taiwan's Gaoshan Cha (high grown Oolong) developed. Many tea farmers here and they work as Co-Op team. After checked in Teapot "hotel" - some of our members decided to rest early... a few followed Steve and me to walk over to Wang-Ting to have teas and chat.
