Summer 2024 Program

We have been planning this trip for a year and a half now, joining forces with our beloved collaborators and trusted farmers in Taiwan, which we are going to reveal for the first time, face to face, with our audience.

"Ye fang cha 野放茶 is the most sustainable agriculture approach for tea growing; tea produced without human interference. The interaction of the trees with living organism in the soil, brings out the original taste and texture of the tea".


Master Jian

This program is original and unique to ho yum tea, curated 100% based on our own experience in multiple visits to the island in the past decade. Every place we visit, every master we meet, and every meal we will have, has been tried before or planned by us exclusively for this trip. This is not a tourist package or bundle ever offered before by anyone else.

100% Original

Based on our own experience, every activity was planned by us exclusively for this trip

We will travel with a private minibus, as a small group of up to 13 travelers, in a boutique program for 10 days in northwest and central Taiwan. The program will be focusing on wild growing and tea making, combined with local culinary gems and cultural activities. This is the ultimate experience for tea and culinary enthusiasts who want to take on a meaningful, educational journey to Taiwan, to meet real tea masters all the way to the source, without worrying about language and cultural gaps. We will provide full guidance and translation for all events and activities in an unforgettable trip to Taiwan.

"Tea grown with pesticides and fertilizers has lost its original properties and medicinal values. Natural wild tea is an elixir that combines the energy of heaven and earth; it’s about cha qi and energy."

Master Chen
