Lao Ye Liang specializes in the production and sales of organic agricultural tea and natural agricultural tea. The planting process does not use pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides at all, but instead uses unique methods to nourish and protect the land, including: (1) The long-term cultivation of acidified soil with lactic acid enzymes imported from Japan Switch back to neutral; (2) use organic enzymes to inhibit pests and diseases; (3) weed problems in tea gardens, weeding with manpower supplemented by machines, or "grass cultivation" to cover other areas other than tea trees.
In addition, the two tea leaves of Master are both hand-picked high mountain teas made in Taiwan, 100%, and roasted on charcoal with longan wood. They have been exported to Europe and the United States. Each batch of tea has been tested for 443 pesticide residues by the EU's authoritative testing agency "Duf Rhein Laboratory", and all of them have zero detection ("Taicha Biochemical Technology Inspection Co., Ltd.", the certification unit of "Duf Rhein Laboratory" in Taiwan) For inspection, see the inspection report in 2017: PDF).
Lao Ye Liang tea is one of the few Taiwanese alpine teas that can be exported to Europe, mainly because the EU inspection regulations require ND (zero residue) to pass the customs, while the Taiwan inspection regulations are within the prescribed amount of pesticides. Lao Ye Liang has always been self-required by the most stringent "EU inspection standards". Each batch of tea has undergone strict pesticide residue testing according to EU standards, and all of them have zero detection, so they have to be exported to Europe.
Master Two is a self-proclaimed "Organic and Natural Farming Alpine Tea Specialty Store", so we always insist on using organic and natural farming methods to grow tea, and never use pesticides, fertilizers and herbicides. In addition, the tea leaves of Lao Ye Liang: (1) All high mountain teas produced by Alishan and Yushan are used; (2) The Taiwan Agriculture and Food Administration issued the "Taiwan Tea Production and Marketing History" and "Taiwan Origin Certification Mark", which are authentic. Taiwan's local excellent high mountain tea factory.
The persistence and hard work of the two of them is to allow the public to drink authentic and high-quality Taiwanese high mountain tea, and to drink it with peace of mind and health. In the Taiwan tea market full of Vietnamese tea, Chinese tea and tea essences, helping consumers to identify the source and quality of tea, so that consumers can buy authentic high-quality Taiwanese high mountain tea, is a corporate mission that Lao Ye Liang attaches great importance to. The following will continue to explain the origin of the tea leaves and the entrepreneurial spirit of the two:
Lao Ye Two Organic and Natural Farming Alpine Tea
Generally speaking, the tea produced in the mountainous area of Taiwan above 1000 meters above sea level is Taiwan high mountain tea. Take Lao Ye Liang's organic and natural farming method high mountain tea as an example:
- lord twoorganic teaIt is produced in the Yushan tea area of Xinyi Township, Nantou, which is more than 1300 meters above sea level. Overlooking Yushan, surrounded by mountains, it is isolated from other tea areas and is not polluted. It is one of the few high-mountain tea areas in Taiwan that has reached organic standards.
- lord twoNatural farming method teaIt is produced in the Alishan tea area above 1100 meters above sea level. Overlooking the Alishan Mountains, it is a famous mountain tea producing area in Taiwan, with cool mist, clouds in the morning and evening, and short average sunshine.
The reason why Laoye Liang can meet the strictest EU inspection standards is derived from the enterprise spirit of "inheriting the virtue of tea and creating new ideas". of. In addition, "Baking with New Ideas" needs to be based on "Inheriting Tea Virtue". Only on the basis of "Inheriting Tea Virtues" can the wisdom of tea-making be produced, so that "Baking with New Ideas" can be created, and many new flavors of tea can be innovatively developed. , let innovation and tradition blend and shine, and let the spirit of tea virtue in traditional culture be passed on from generation to generation. Here is a supplementary explanation of the connotations of the words "Inheriting the virtues of tea and creating new ideas" as follows:
Inherit the virtue of tea
In the literal sense, tea virtue is the morality of planting and making tea. Tea virtue has a deep connotation, which can be divided into three levels: heaven, earth and human. The "heaven" in the tea virtue means that those who grow tea and make tea must respect the heaven and believe in cause and effect; the "earth" in the tea virtue means that the tea grower and tea maker must protect the land and nourish the land; the "human" in the tea virtue is the It means that tea growers want to benefit people and make tea that is beneficial to people's physical and mental health.
Liu Chongpei, the boss of Lao Ye Liang, said: "The meaning of tradition is very far-reaching and contains moral connotations. Grandpa taught us from a young age: watching the sky to make tea, watching tea roasted tea, following the laws of nature, and starting from improving the spiritual level , Only by self-cultivation can you make good tea. It also contains traditional values, including benevolence, righteousness, courtesy, wisdom and trustworthiness. For example, you must be considerate of others, create clean and non-toxic tea, and make people drink healthy. Doing business pays attention to honesty Don’t bully, uphold that kind spirit, and return to the traditional culture of sincerity, this is what we insist on.”
Since the masters have been engaged in growing tea and making tea, they have always adhered to the spirit of tea morality of the people of heaven and earth, and on the basis of respecting the sky, practiced the principle of "cultivating the earth before planting good tea". Adhere to non-toxic farming, and never use chemical fertilizers, but use natural organic fertilizers to nourish and treat the land, and import Japanese lactic enzymes to turn the acidified soil after long-term cultivation back to neutrality, and contribute to the endless environment.
In addition, in order to promote the concept of non-toxic cultivation, Liu Chongpei went through three years of testing various organic materials, and even imported Japanese lactic acid bacteria enzymes at all costs, thus overcoming many problems of pests and diseases in the tea garden. He also persuaded his contracted tea farmers to join the ranks of non-toxic cultivation. Liu Chongpei said: "Shen Nong's Materia Medica records that Shen Nong tasted a hundred herbs, encountered seventy-two poisons every day, and got tea to cure them. In my impression, tea is used for detoxification. What is the reason for detoxification? Therefore, the biggest beneficiaries of this non-toxic farming method are not only myself and my friends from tea farmers, but also our consumers.”
In terms of tea baking, the two masters know that the traditional roasted tea method is the right way, insist on using "longan wood charcoal roasting", and devote themselves to the research of "longan wood charcoal roasting" technology, accurately roasting old tea and many other teas All kinds of tea have the original taste of aroma and rhythm, and take this as a lifelong career, hoping to inherit the beauty of tea virtue.
"Longan Muwen charcoal roasted tea" is the wisdom of the old ancestors, and its complicated process is almost lost. It uses longan charcoal far-infrared hojicha, through a permeable heat source, can remove turnips and preserve greens, and roast the stimulating theophylline and caffeine elements. The traditional "longan wood charcoal-roasted" tea is a guarantee of quality, so all the teas produced by the two masters, as long as they need to be roasted, are all made with "longan wood charcoal-roasted" to hojicha.
However, many people in modern times only believe in technology and switch to quick and easy new technology methods. In the short term, it seems to save a lot of man-hours. However, they do not know that the rich connotations of traditional construction methods are gradually lost, and eventually become legends. form of product.
New ideas baked out
Since the early years of devoting to the research, development and production of various old teas, inheriting the spiritual connotation of the world and people in the tea virtues and retaining the traditional tea-making methods have always been the insistence of the masters. In recent years, Laoye Liang has expanded the scope of research and development on the basis of "inheriting tea virtues", and has continued to innovate and develop new types of tea, so that people who like tea can enjoy more good teas with different flavors of Lao Ye Liang.
These innovative teas are all organic and natural agricultural teas roasted by the method of "longan wood simmering on charcoal", but with changes and innovations in the fermentation process, many new tea varieties that surprise consumers have been developed.
