It's certainly a tea house with a good view and that's about it. Not much choices for food and drinks prices are a rip off. Not worth it....

After fighting the hordes of mainland Chinese tourists that visit this picturesque village it is a relief to sit down in this quaint tea house and take in the peaceful sea view from the top floor terrace. The choice of tea is limited to Oolong or green we chose the latter which is not up to Japanese standards but the... More

I was really looking forward to visiting this tea house, like many other people that visit the area I love the Spirited Away film and wanted to visit the tea house that was the inspiration for the bathhouse from the film. However, I left disappointed, uninspired and ripped off. For such an iconic location, I felt it was lacking warmth... More

Great place to take some rest and view Jiufen hills, mountain and ocean scene at the same time. Bring extra cash if you're considered to spend some time here.

Arrived at about 2pm and the restaurant serves only tea. You have option to select a set at NT$300 per person which include tea and snacks or ala carte. We sat on the lower level out on the balcony. There were only 4 tables in the area which made it less busy than the upper level. Service staff is very... More

Sure, the inside is pretty interesting, but the balcony has a great view! If you go to Jiufen, stop here for tea - it makes for a nice break from the bustle. We opted for tea, and it took about 2 hours to drink everything they gave us - it was delicious, and after being on the go for 3... More

When you visit Jiu Fen, the tourist is expecting to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and escape to the mountains. Unfortunately, Jiu Fen has become an overcommericalized overcrowded over everything bit of a destination. So how do you make the best of this little bit of disappointment? We found this tea house to be just... More

This is a nice place to enjoy the view and have some tea. They will show you how to make the tea so you don't screw it up as I would have. Cost about $10 USD to sit on the balcony, drink tea and eat a few snacks.

Imagine sipping tea while enjoying the scenery in a mystical environment. Totally out of this world experience. For all that, be prepare to pay premium price.

Honesty, it has best view in jiufen. However, nothing is free and the scenery fees is hide in ur drink bills.... in short, it is still worth to visit.....
