At dawn the tea trees are covered with a cool mist, and then the life-giving rays of the sun fall on them. Plantations of this tea are located in the Alishan area, on the territory of the national park, far from big cities. This ensures the ecological purity of tea.
Jin Xuan is the name of the variety of bush that was obtained through a long breeding in 1980. Also known as Taiwan #12. Now this tea is profiled as a classic Taiwanese variety.
