2017 TOST - Tao-Chu-Miao Tea District

Tao-Chu-Miao used to be Taiwan's largest tea district...along the Tai3Route's hills and terraces, so many beautiful tea gardens had been converted into golf courses and industrial parks... #2017TOST travels to Shakeng, Henshan on 10/24/2017 to visit Norman Shu and one of the biggest tea factories back in 60s and 70s, Sha Keng Tea Manufactory. (*Per Norman, there are many projects on going now... and #2018TOST might expect to have surprises !)
Norman gave our members a quick tour in his factory... and rushing us over to the tea garden before dark... 

Boy, that is a beautiful tea garden alright, with a pond and bamboo bushes where so many white egrets nesting by and flying around to guard the tea plants... There are many Taiwan Incense Cedars (肖楠) grown into small forest, and we can imagine some tea bushes inside the forest might carry unique aroma and special note...
