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

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

When we got there the tea house was only half full. After half an hour, the place was full and we were kept asking if any new order would be placed as they would obviously like to entertain some more customers instead of us who only ordered tea and a bit of snack. After a long day walking and shopping,... More

Everything about this tea house is great. The ambience is great, the tea is great, the tea set is great, even the menu is unique. But I feel its abit pricy, that's why the 4 stars.

It's a very fair price(300NT$) to have a tea at such a famous place. They offer you a wide ocean view from its terrace but that's all. Teas and sweet stuff that is their main product according to their name are not evaluable.
