San Yi Jing Si Tea Plantation
The San Yi Tea plantation is cultivated with the spirit of compassion and protection of the earth by Venerable Master Cheng Yen, and cared for by numerous Tzu Chi volunteers with kind hearts and good deeds. For the time being, the Sanyi Jing Si Tea Plantation has a thriving ecology, and the tea trees that draw on the essence of the sun and moon have improved the quality of the tea leaves and increased production, providing not only healthy tea for the public, but also a testimony to the "health of the earth and the peace of all beings".

Farming practices of the tea plantation
