2016 TOST - Visit TRES / Wenshan Branch (20161028)
TRES, Taiwan Tea Research and Extension Station, established back in 1903 by Japanese for the thorough R&D about the soil, weather, cultivar, plantation management, processing technique and equipment renovation, and training for farmers to get updated. There are total 3 branches (Wenshan, Yuchih, Taitung) and sub-branch in Tung-Ting, plus the HQ in Yangmei. Geographically, these 5 stations are focusing 5 major tea districts in Taiwan. I always share my respect and appreciation to TRES for their great contribution to Taiwan Tea Industry in many of my tea presentations. It is about the Team Efforts, and TRES plays its important role. Without TRES, TOST program will looks less meaningful.
