Taiwan Tea Tour (3-Day Private Tour)

Itinerary: Day 1 – Taipei City Fly into Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport near Taipei. By the time you’ve transferred to your hotel in the capital, we’ll have finalized a plan for the rest of the day that matches your interests and energy levels.Depending on time available, this may include a thorough look at Dadaocheng, one of the oldest and most interesting parts of Taipei. Some of the tea businesses here have been operating for more than 150 years; the tea trade paid for many of the ornate baroque-revival buildings on Dihua Street. We’ll experience a tea ceremony, led by a local tea master and featuring a selection of Taiwan's finest teas. Alternatively, we may take the Maokong Gondola up to the tea plantations in the southwestern part of the capital, and have dinner - with some excellent local tea, of course - at our favorite restaurant, watching the lights of Taipei flicker in the distance.Day 2 – Hsinchu and Miaoli After a morning visit to one of Taipei’s famous tea sellers, today we’ll be driving southwest for about an hour and a half, into the Hakka heartlands of Hsinchu and Miaoli. This is where Taiwan’s oriental beauty tea is grown, and we’ll be looking at the scenic township of Emei. At Fuxing Tea Demonstration Centre we’ll try local green, oolong and oriental beauty teas, and take a look at the pre-World War II tea-processing equipment preserved inside.Dinner will include Hakka delicacies. In the past, many Hakka dishes were regarded as oily and salty; in line with the modern preference for healthy fare, innovative chefs have updated the cuisine, while retaining its characteristic pork and pickle flavors.Day 3 – Scenic drive Whatever time you fly out, we’ll help you make the very most of your final day in Taiwan. Before arriving at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport, we can take in some of the region’s scenic attractions, such as the picturesque inland towns of Nanzhuang and Beipu, or bring you to a local tea specialist to buy additional supplies of oolong for you to carry back home. Additional information: Prices based on twin sharing. Single supplement is US$132.

Few non-Taiwanese know that the nearby interior is both a bastion of Hakka culture and awash with pretty little towns and endearing country scenes. For this tour we’ll take you out of the city and into the foothills where tea and fruit are grown, and where tradition still plays a major role in people’s lives.Beipu, founded in 1835 by armed Hakka settlers, is a place where the past can still be seen and touched. A good bit of 19th-century character remains, including  shops that sell camphor oil, a key commodity in the Taiwan of yesteryear, and restaurants that serve frog meat and offal. Lunch will include more mainstream Hakka delicacies – but if you’re an adventurous gourmand let us know and we’ll order accordingly! In the past, many Hakka dishes were regarded as oily and salty; in line with the modern preference for healthy fare, innovative chefs have updated the cuisine, while retaining its characteristic pork and pickle flavours. While in Beipu you can also try your hand at making leicha, a nourishing blend of tea leaves, seeds, nuts and grains.Inland Hsinchu is where Taiwan’s oriental beauty tea is grown. In the afternoon, we’ll tour the Fuxing Tea Demonstration Centre in Emei.
