The Luye area, which was formerly called "Luliao", is Taitung County's most famous tea farm area. In the early 1960s, due to the suitability of the climate and soil, it became a tea cultivation area. The Taitung Branch of the Taiwan Tea Research and Extension Station was also set up here. Thus, one can imagine the quality and scale of the Luye Tea Plantation at that time was first class.
Currently, the Luye Tourist Tea Plantation has an area of over 94 hectares. It is mostly concentrated around Luye Township's Longtian Village and Yongan Village, in the Gaotai area. The tea grown here includes "Fulu Tea", as well as finger-citron tea, jinsyuan tea, and jade oolong tea, all belongs to different kinds of oolong tea.
Due to the pleasant view of the vast Luye area landscape of the and its tea plantation scenery, the Luye Tea Plantation followed the trend of switching from traditional farming to recreational farming, and became a recreation and tourist tea plantation. Many hostels here reflect a tea-farm style. The visitors can spend the night here, and enjoy tea and conversation with their hosts.
