Taitung Luye Plateau

「飛行傘的起跳場」Paragliding take-off field

位於永安社區的鹿野高台,有著廣大的平坦腹地與特殊的斷崖地形,為理想的飛行傘活動場地。每年四到九月適合飛行的季節裡,總是聚集了許多飛行好手在這裡大顯身手。從起飛場居高臨下俯瞰,可欣賞到美麗的棋盤式農田景緻。

Located in the Yongan community, Luye Plateau has a large field with special cliffs and flat terrain that makes an ideal place for paragliding. From April to September each year, players are gathering here to show off their talent. The gorgeous chessboard farmland can be viewed during take-off.

好不容易到了這裡,卻因天候不佳不適宜起飛,無法見到高手在天空遨翔的英姿。不過,望著起跳場旁這一大片的開闊草地,心情再鬱悶也都會一掃而空。

I finally arrived here, but due to an unsuitable weather for paragliding, I was not able to see them. Nevertheless, just by watching the open field, I had complaints.

草原高上有座三層樓高的「高眺亭」,涼亭上視野遼濶,可將綿延的翠綠青山及青青草原全景一網打盡。

There is a three-story pavilion on the open grass filed which offers a panoramic view of the mountains and green field.

鹿野高台是台東縣最著名的茶區,也是冠軍茶「福鹿茶」的產區。車行在高台間,不時可以看到順著坡勢延展的茶園景緻及採茶工人忙碌的工作情景。

Luye Plateau is famous for its tea and also the origin place of the champion tea “Fulu Tea”. While walking in the plateau, many busy tea workers are seen along the hills side of the tea garden.

「福鹿茶」因日夜溫差大再加上先天地理的優勢,所生產出來的茶清香甘甜,相當受好評。

With the temperature difference between day and night as well as the inherent geographical advantage, “FuluTea” provides a highly recognized sweet fragrance.

鹿野高台有許多的茶行,提供品茶、買茶的機會,甚至有些還會提供採茶及製茶體驗。

Many teashops are available in the Luye Plateau. Some of them offer a tea making DIY experience.

高台的「愛嬌姨茶餐」提供相當好吃的特色風味茶餐,每一道都是以茶入菜,連白飯也都不例外,每一道都好吃的讓我印象深刻。

右 圖:這裡的飯是用蜜香紅茶煮成的紅茶飯,入口同時有淡淡的茶香與飯香。

左下圖:剝皮辣椒、蘿蔔及小黃瓜等小菜,都是用茶油醃漬的,十分的開胃。

左上圖:「茶油剝皮辣椒雞湯」是以茶油剝皮辣椒湯汁熬煮而成的,雞肉用的是結實有彈性的土雞肉,湯頭十分鮮美好喝。

“291 Tea Restaurant” provides excellent tea meals. Each meal contains tea flavor, so does the white rice. I was very impressed by each dish.

(Picture on the right): This is the black tea rice with pure tea and rice fragrances.

(Picture on the lower left): These appetizers were salted with tea oil. It has skinless peppers, radishes, cucumber, and other side dishes.

(Picture on the upper left): “Peeling chili tea oil chicken soup” is cooked with peeling chili tea oil. The chicken is a range chicken so the meat and soup were so tasty.

右上圖:這道「茶油炒棕筍」是我很喜歡的一道菜。棕筍是老闆自己種的,口感比竹筍細緻,味道清甜爽口。

右下圖:「綠茶炸豆腐」是用雞蛋豆腐裹綠茶粉調製的炸粉炸的,綠茶本身有去油的效果,所以這道炸豆腐吃起來外酥內軟,不油膩。

左 圖:要說我最喜歡的一道菜,那非「紅茶滷肉」莫屬了!滷肉Q彈入味,鹹度很剛好,而用紅茶為底來燉煮,去油也去膩,還有淡淡的茶香。即便我已經吃飽了還是忍不住一口接一口。

(Picture on the upper right): I really like this dish-“Stir-fry Bamboo shoot with tea oil”. The owner of the restaurant plants these bamboo shoots. They taste so sweet and fresh.

(Picture on the lower right): The “Fired tofu” dish- the tofu is wrapped with green tea powders and then deep-fried. The green tea has a grease reduction effect that makes the fry tofu taste crispy outside and soft inside without a greasy flavor.

(Picture on the left): My favorite dish is the “ Black tea braised pork”. It has a great taste. Since it is braised with black tea, the pork contains the tea fragrance. I could not help have one piece after another.

餐廳四周是愛嬌姨與丈夫甘振豐經營的大片茶園,視野景觀相當開闊,因兩夫妻本身就是茶專家,相當懂得各種茶的特性及合適的烹調方式,才能研發出一道道讓人念念不忘的佳餚,連名餐廳的廚師都還曾過來觀摩呢!

The restaurant is surrounded by the tea field owned by the owners, Mr Gan, Zhen Feng and his wife. It offers a great view. Since both of them are tea experts, all the dishes they prepared with tea flavors have attracted many famous restaurant chefs to come to learn!
