Description of Our Community: Wenshan District is situated in the southern part of Taipei City, with Xindian, Yonghe and Zhonghe on its left and Shenkeng on its right. During the reign of Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty, the ancient residents started to reclaim the wasteland along Jingmei River. Towns were then populated in the years of Emperors of Jiaqing and Daoguang. Because Wenshan District is a basin surrounded on three sides by mountains on the sides and the climate is moderate and moist, the inhabitants run their tea plantations on the hills. They mainly produce Tieguanyin originating in Anxi County, Fujian Province. Thanks to the similar climate, Tieguanyin was imported to Wenshan District. They also grow green bamboo shoots. Wenshan tourism tea plantations are largely located on the hills of Zhi Nan Village and Maokong. Operated by tea farmers, farmers associations and the government, tea culture and business thrive in Wenshan District.

Project Description: People associate Mucha with its famous tea, such as Pouchong, Tieguanyin etc. With our project, we are going to launch a website introducing the features of Mucha tea. When appreciating tea, it’s important to know more about tea --- how tea farmers make tea, the culture and history of tea goes, and how successful tea business is through promotion and education.
