Qing Xin red tea

The history of tea

In September 2019, we visited Tina and Minhan again at the beautiful Meishan Mountain in the central part of the island of Taiwan. You have to be well prepared for the trip to the mountains. The car was three-quarters full, but we stopped at a gas station, and Minhan said that "the mountain is unpredictable, it's always better to be prepared." We can't even imagine how lucky we live on the part of the Earth. On a daily basis, it can happen that a section of road disappears overnight, or an entire mountainside slides down several meters.

1,5 hours of twisting followed on the way to the mountain. There wasn't a single straight section, the car kept going uphill, unwavering. It was night, so for us we were moving blindly, since the light of the lamp was always shining on a rock wall, but Minhan knew well when to turn immediately to the left or right. In the meantime, he kindly told us about the upcoming autumn harvest, the tea shows in China, or the story of this new car.
