老闆娘睇漏咗老闆尋日已經 Update 咗「大吉嶺茶的製作步驟﹙一﹚」，而家補返……
Do you know “How Darjeeling Tea to be produced”?(1)
I visited to Darjeeling 2weeks ago and I have learnt how to produce and what will effect to the tea taste.
I think it is interesting so I would like to share the knowledge.
The tea gardens are located in high altitude steep slope .
Basically higher altitude make tea quality better as temperature lower (slow to grow), temperature gap between daytime and nighttime is big and often fogged(cover from Sunshine).
However not always good as high place often rain and it will wash away the taste of tea if there are rain while harvesting.
On the other hand, if there are suddenly strong sunshine, then tea becomes too bitter( but sometimes it makes good body to taste).
Tea is all hand plucked as no way to use machine in such steep place.
When the leaves are plucked,
If leaves are young,small and soft,
Tea taste becomes good like aromatic , sweet, good body etc,,,.
But if it is too young, no taste but very expensive.
So altitude, weather condition, leaves condition all matters to the taste that all perfect conditions are very very rare.
That is why super high quality tea is very rare and precious.
