Wistaria Tea House
A picturesque Japanese-era wooden house imbued with the historical richness inherited from decades of cultural awareness. Wistaria Tea House is a now a great place to enjoy one of Taiwan's many original, organically-grown teas, prepared as part of the traditional tea-drinking ritual. The official website describes the experience as 'A dialogue between tea, the drinker and heaven allows the drinker to enter into a sort of correspondence with the environment'. Wistaria Tea House is truly a place for reflection and enlightenment - reflecting the spirit of the academic and activist, David Chow, who previously called this space home.
Wistaria Tea House offers visitors a wide selection of oolong teas, Tie Guanyin, green teas and pu-er teas. The teahouse's aesthetic and menu both echo an awareness of self and surroundings, in the minimal Japanese tearoom-style decor and the purist approach to serving tea.
To find the right tea for you, it's wise to ask for the staff to give a recommendation. Wistaria also serves light meals and healthy snacks that go well with tea range of teas available. Or if you prefer to reverse-engineer the experience, the servers at Wistaria Tea House will gladly recommend a tea to suit your mood, preferred flavours or meal choice.
Because Wistaria has a uniquely vast range of teas on offer, it's recommended to order two kinds of tea to sample and savour. The staff memebers speak English well and all are happy to assist and introduce you to the tea drinking culture of Taiwan.
