  Chingshin Tea Team survey results analysis  
 

The survey shows that most interviewed people or students knew that the Taipei District produces tea, but only 44.5% clearly know that the locations were in Muzha and Nangang, and even less people had deep understanding of tea, only 8.4% knew that the categories of tea are according to the fermentation level of tea. Around 30 percent of the people were not clear about early tea recordings, and were not clear that Shannong tasted tea.

But everyone clearly knew that the aging of the farming population has caused the downfall of domestic tea, so it is apparent that this phenomenon has already existed for a period of time, and is known by the people and students. In terms of choosing beverages, tea beverages are the most popular drink of the public and received the highest vote of 44.5%, we can see through this figure the great demand in the tea product market and the enthusiasm the Taiwan public has toward tea.

Although the public is not familiar in terms of common tea knowledge, but this is the purpose of our topical research website, to promote knowledge about tea to the public. Finally, what made us extremely happy was: 70 % of the subjects thought that the government should have more subsidies for tea farmers, and over 90% of the subjects supported allowing the Farmer’s Association to hold various activities to promote tea. Such a high support rate for tea made us more confident and hopeful toward the reawakening of the domestic tea industry.

1. Visiting these locations, what are two questions you would like answers to?

1.       The younger generation do not grow tea anymore, is there any way to solve this problem?

2.       Is there any place in the world that is unsuitable for growing tea?

2. Which location did you like the most or what location gave you the biggest impression? Why? (please explain the reasons)

1.       The Wang’s Tea museum because the introductions of tea were very detailed, and there were graphs, images, and real tea leaves, etc., allowing the visitors to quickly understand in one glance.

2.       Because not only did the owner explain to us in person, we saw real tea making machines, we also saw people picking leaves, what gave me the biggest impressions was brewing tea ourselves and the sweet aftertaste, etc… it was fun experiencing it in person.

3. You learned and heard a lot of information, can you categorize some main points. (at least three)

1.       The tea growing area is decreasing, the outflow of the younger generation, and the competition of imported tea, are the obstacles facing Taiwan tea farmers.

2.       In the northern area only Wenshan District and Nangang District have tea trees.

3.       Northern teas can be picked five times a year.

4. We hope that the entire visitation schedule has allowed you to have a better understanding toward Wenshan Baozhong tea, please record your thoughts and reflections. (around 200 words)

Actually at home we will brew tea on occasion, but I did not have much understanding toward it, through the visitations I came to understand the entire tea production process, and I was able to see professionals brewing tea. Tea farmers now earn less and less money and their lives are getting harder and harder, of course there are many reasons that are causing this, we should try to help them, buying some tea leaves to use at home is not a bad idea.

The place that gave me the greatest impression: Taipei City Construction Bureau
Because their answers to our questions were straight to the point, it was clear, simple, but powerful.

3. You learned and heard a lot of information, can you categorize some main points. (at least three)

1.       There are over a dozen types of teas grown in Taiwan , 70% is Qingxin Oolong.

2.       In the north tea can be picked 5 times a year, once each in spring, autumn, winter, and three times in the summer.

3.       In the south tea can be picked 6 times a year, but because the tea leaf quality is not good in the summer, it is often cut off.

4. We hope that the entire visitation schedule has allowed you to have a better understanding toward Wenshan Baozhong tea, please record your thoughts and reflections. (around 200 words)

When doing the report it was hard not to encounter bottlenecks, but because our persevering spirit, we were able to overcome them one by one.

Before joining this research project, I only knew a little about tea, so in the beginning it was a little difficult, but because we went to many interviews in person, and we used the internet to find a lot of information, I slowly entered the world of tea. Not long after, I discovered how wide and vast the world of tea was, and it was not something you can learn in a short period of time, I know I still have a lot to learn!

No matter how hard the competition process was, as long as you try your best, it is meaningful!

During the visitations, I was inspired to “fight” for the spirit of tea, the Japanese value Cha Tao, it actually all started in China . Chairman Wang of Wang’s Tea, Mr. Lin the mechanic from the Construction Bureau, and Mr. Lin the Section Chief of the Promotion Section in the Nangang Farmer’s Association, all gave me many extra surprises.
