A visit to Taiwan would hardly be complete if tea wasn’t involved. On your travels you’ll discover a deep reverence and love for this life-giving beverage. Whether it’s on the mountain top tea plantations or an inner city teahouse, not only must you try a local brew or two, you’ll want to take some home as well. It’s hardly surprising to learn that tea remains one of the top ten souvenirs in Taiwan, which makes it almost mandatory to carry home a box of Taiwan tea. With so many varieties to choose from, best that you consult a local expert in one of the many tea shops. Taiwan is famous for its teas, so it pays to do a little research to understand the differences between oriental beauty tea, dongding oolong tea, Alishan Mountain tea, and Taiwan high mountain tea. Better still, why not book a dedicated Taiwan tea tour and visit some of Taiwan’s most famous tea destinations.
