Tea of Taipei: Small-Group Tour with Taipei City Sightseeing
From US$100.00
Experience a traditional Taipei tea ceremony on a small-group tour that explores Taiwanese tea from plantation to teahouse for a comprehensive introduction to local tea culture. You’ll ride the Maokong Gondola, visit the Tea Museum and the lush Bagua Tea Plantation, and walk Shihting Old Street, traveling with a group that’s capped at seven travelers to ensure personalized attention from the guide.
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.
