Taitung, Taiwan

Birthplace of "red oolong", Taitung is a county in Taiwan located along the southeastern coast. The third-largest country in Taiwan, Taitung is also one of the most isolated regions as well and home to the largest and most diverse group of aboriginal cultures. Due to its mountainous geography, Taitung has escaped mainstream urbanization and colonization, remaining sparsely populated and under-developed. This isolation has helped to keep the area's traditions intact, including its tea production methods.
