Lin Hua Tai Tea Company

Top choice tea in Zhongshan & Datong

The oldest tea-selling shop in Taipei, dating to 1883. The current fourth-generation merchants are more than happy to talk tea and let you sample the wares, which sit in large metal drums about the warehouse. Prices per jin (600g measure) are clearly written on the top of each drum. Ask for a tour of the tea factory in the back.
