Tea ceremony - learn to appreciate tea

Love the tea and the tea ceremony here in the restaurant. Having tea and snacks (Taiwan sweets) are a must here. We also had food, two curries/ set dishes (rice, meat with a thick source), simple and filling, more suited the western's pallets.

This place is always crowded, because it is a movie scene in Japanese animation, so when someone asked about "Is this place good for business", my answer is "no". But it is definitely a good place for families. This traditional Chinese tea house is also cool, especially for those from different cultural backgrounds. The waiters might not tell you about...

If you want to capture a real stunning photo in Jiufen, this is the place to visit. View my picture and you will know why. Just type "Jiufen" in google, and you can find many similar photos are taken from this tea house. However, the service was lousy, it was slow and inattentive. It was crowded when I stepped in...

There is a great variety of Chinese tea leaves to choose from. We opted for oolong tea and snacks to go along and was charged 300 taiwanese dollar per person. One of the attendants showed us how to brew the tea. We enjoyed the freshly prepared piping hot tea and the snacks . Our favourite was the green mung beans... More

A Mei tea house is famed from a part of the movie, but it really earns its name in terms of good tea and good view. Jin fen has Old Street to be proud of, and A Mei tea house is within the boundary of Old Street. Though it is not cheap as it charges NT$200 for every customer for... More

Jui fen old street is situated on a hillside with many steps and lanterns just like old times. If you go there, be sure to drop by one of the many teahouses. We went to Ah Mei teahouse which is strategically located with a great view of the rolling hills and ocean from where we sat at the upper deck.... More

We took a break from the crowded narrow streets below the tea house, couldn't wait to get out of that market area. The view from the deck are very nice, it wasn't too crowded so we were able to take a couple group photos near the edge with the ocean in the background. Prices are a bit high for drinks,... More

We had a chance to stop by the famous tea house as it was raining that day. Sat at the upper floor and each of us had a tea set. Value for $, think it was $250-$300twd for a set which includes tea and a cake. View would have been fantastic had it not been covered with fog
