Top 5 Tea Shops in Taoyuan, Hsinchu and Miaoli


The essence of Taiwan’s tea is in the Taozhumiao area. Before 1980, tea plantations were mainly concentrated in northern Taiwan, the largest being situated in Taoyuan, Hsinchu and Miaol. Among them, the Hakka people play an important role. In the early days, due to the difficulty of reclamation, most of the relatively flat plains were planted with rice; while the hillsides naturally became the production areas of tea trees. “Whenever there is a mountain, there must be a customer, and when there is a customer, there must be tea.” Let us take a closer look at the classic tea shops of Taoyuan, Hsinchu and Miaoli!
