The Hungry Cyclist in Taiwan. Day 1, the PingLin tea plantations

On day 1 of my Taiwan tour I cycled around the Jin Gua Liao river some 30 miles south east of Taipei. 
 
Cutting through the steep hillsides and verdant tea plantations of PingLin is hot, hard work. The undulating coutryside and searing heat make for challenging cycling but also ensure that PingLin grows some of the best tea in the world.
 
I stopped to meet local tea farmer, Mr Chi at his Boa Chung plantation. As we sipped small bowls of aromatic green tea he insisted it will not only make me beautiful but also aid my digestion.
 
Either way, it proved the perfect antidote from a sweat-drenched morning's ride.
