2012 TOST - visit TRES Headquarters

10/26/2013, Norman Shu, the President of Taiwan Tea Manufacturers' Association (TTMA) is waiting at the TRES Headquarters for our arrival to this most important R&D center of Taiwan tea industry.  Director Chen of TRES (Taiwan Tea Research and Extension Station) has been in Vegas with us at the 2012 World Tea Expo.  He greets our TOST friends with a great arrangement of touring the facilities and also a series of tea cupping.  We are proud of TRES and it is indeed one of the great corner stones for Taiwan tea industry since 1903.  So many successful varietals are developed from this team, and also the continuous training and education programs for the farmers and tea factories to improve their craftsmanship and stay competitive is just amazing. By far this 2012 TOST has visited Wenshan Branch, Yuchih Branch, TungTing Substation and then we finally are here at the headquarters.  (*We have asked Director Chen to consider to give TOST a hands on workshop in this great facility in the near future.)
