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.

I came by during the rainy season and was partially drenched. This place was highly recommended by a friend, and I could not still get over the fact that this was where Hayao, creator of Spirited Away, get inspiration from his masterpiece.

The whole experience with the proper way of steeping the tea and pouring it out was wonderful. After being shown how to do it, my friend and I had a wonderful time. However, prior to this enjoyment - we had the unfortunate displeasure of being served by a lady who seemed to be thoroughly unimpressed that 1) we couldn't read... More

I was lured by the rumour that Hayoi Miyazaki (writer and director of Spirited Away) got his inspiration from this teahouse. The sights that this teahouse has to offer is amazing. My friends and I stepped in to have some tea at 10pm at night. It was a great time to be there as there were no crowds and the... More

We stayed at Jiufen for two nights. We wanted to have dinner at A Mei on the first night but it was full. We managed to get a table for tea on the last day before we left Jiufen for Taipei. The table we got was outdoor, giving us a great view of the surroundings while we enjoyed our tea.... More

Excellent views of the landscapes and the tea brewing experience there is amazing! This was by far one of my favorite things I did while I was in Taiwan!! I would definitely revisit this tea house if I ever return to Taiwan.
