Five generations of family tradition have kept the single origin tea farm as its original purity: Formosan Farms Taiwan Native Mountain Tea, located by Sun Moon Lake.

Almost two hundred years of sunrises and sunsets by the lake, fog humid breeds the tea trees there. The pure nature of clean environment grows the power of lives, lasting the early familyancestors who brought up the native trees from a  nearby high cliff.

It was also a "Royal Tea Farm". This farm had been guarded  by the Japanese ruling government for nearly a hundred years afterwards. All Native Mountain tea was sent to the royal Japanese family for some health-keeping purposes. In particular, the most health benefits according to the record submitted to the Royal family include:

  • Anti-radiation (especially protecting pollutions from the WWII bombs)
  • Boost immunity

On top of that, in the recent COVID-19 also found this tea might help to inhibit the virus by Lung et al. (2020) Journal of Medical Virology (DOI:10.1002/ jmv.25761)


As its highest quality during the Royal Tea Farm, farmers today still keep the promise from their family ancestors legacy, as the handwritten book guided farming and tea-making details throughout so many decades:

No pesticides at all.

No chemicals at all.

No additives at all.

Respect all eco-freindly lives.

Respect the weather.

The family's tea-farming and tea-making "bible" keeps all major records at the farm, and still pass on. 

Climate change is vivid, proved in this bible.

How to respect Mother Earth?

How to make a high quality tasty tea?

There are clues, along with tradition of experiences. 

The recent extreme weather interrupt our peaceful minds, up and down with bad news of wildfires, heat waves,...........

A sip of Taiwan Native Mountain tea, embedded in a peaceful tradition might calm our souls, as long time before here at the farm.
