Mei, Ume or someone called it Chinese plum or Japanese apricot. It was originates from China ,then brought to Japan and Korea....It flowers in very lately winter (especially in Snowing ) and the fruit ripens in early summer ,normaly at the season of raining .Therewass a  beautiful word be built  in chinese, which describes this season , called "mei yu". There were more poetry be built durning the five thounds years .In Taiwan , we made many kinds of the farm product of Mei,it also very well for health.YOu also can find Mei in the old medicine . Mei liquor ,Ume juice, pickled mei, and even sauce have been very popularly used and known.

Sinyi was a township  we satyed durning this weekend. Yes, we were comming for Mei and Coffee.  Sinyi locates in a very steep mountains, it is a place which Yushan(the heighest mountain of Taiwan) is.
