Growing Wu Long (wu-long) Tea in Taiwan

Hsin Zhu county Wu Ling area Li Shan area Dong Ding Mountain Shan Ling Xi area Alishan area

Taiwan produces the best wu-long tea (also spelled wu-long tea or wulong tea) in the world. Its unique growing environment is due to both its geographical position and its mountainous terrain.

Taiwan wu-long tea is grown in mountainous areas near the Tropic of Cancer. This combination of a subtropical climate and high elevations produces ideal conditions for growing wu-long tea.

Wu Long tea has been produced in Taiwan for more than a 150 years. It was an important export commodity up until the 1980s, when wu-long tea production switched to supply a growing demand from the domestic market. Taiwan wu-long tea is now grown almost exclusively for tea lovers in Taiwan.

Wu Long is the most popular type of tea in Taiwan. The name "wu-long" refers to the method of processing the leaves after they have been picked, but in fact, there are a great many varieties of tea plants, each producing an wu-long tea with a unique flavor and texture.

Taiwan wu-long is grown in many parts of the island. This satellite photo of Taiwan allows you to see the position some of the most important tea growing regions of Taiwan. Click on any name for more information about growing tea in Taiwan.
