About Taichung, TaiwanTaichung(嘉義) is a county in Taiwan. Taichung stretches mostly east-west, in a narrow band reaching from the west coast, well over halfway across Taiwan. It shares a long border with Nantou to the south.
In December of 2010, Taichung county merged with Taichung City, the largest city in the county, to form a single unit of governance. The tea world has still been referring to the region as Taichung county.
The eastern part of Taichung county is home to Li Shan(梨山), or pear mountain. The Li Shan region produces Li Shan Oolong, a high mountain oolong. This tea is distinct from Alishan Oolong, which is produced at Ali Shan, in Chiayi county, a county farther south that does not border Taichung.
