What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Taipei and then travel into the Maokong mountains to ride the Maokong Gondola, getting aerial views of tea plantations, teahouses, and mountain scenery. Next, visit the tea museum to get some background on Taiwanese tea, and continue to the Bagua Tea Plantation, passing views of Thousand Island Lake along the way. At Bagua Tea Plantation, see a lush, emerald-green landscape of terraced tea fields, with the chance to taste some locally grown tea (own expense). From there, return to Taipei for a leisurely walk down Shihting Old Street, and join a tea expert for a traditional Taiwanese tea ceremony that offers a fascinating glimpse into an ancient culture. After enjoying your tea and learning how to steep the perfect pot, the day concludes with return transfer to your hotel.

Even if I was the only person on the trip, My Taiwan Tour was willing to accommodate my preference for the tea tour. Andy was an engaging tour guide, and was quite knowledgeable. He and the driver were pretty kind and I had a nice time overall.
