Taipei Tea Promotion Center for Tie Guanyin Tea and Baozhong Tea 臺北市鐵觀音包種茶研發推廣中心

The Taipei Tea Promotion Center for Tie Guanyin Tea and Baozhong Tea was inaugurated in 1985 in the Maokong suburb. Visitors can learn about the tea-production process and tea-tasting methods in the tea leaves display area, and take advantage of the reservation-only weekday education programs, or weekend guided tours offered at free-of-charge by volunteers, in a special area dedicated to tea-making instructions. An outdoor education area is also available in the promotion center’s back mountain, where a variety of plants, including Osmanthus, Camellia, Cherry tree and Oliver Maple can be found, besides a family recreation facility, a tea garden, an eco-pond, a meteorological observatory and an education-purpose, soil-erosion simulator enabled by artificial rainfall, to show visitors the importance of soil conservation. By incorporating such elements as farming, lifestyle enhancement, culture and leisure activities, the promotion center provides visitors with a wonderful recreation option and insights into the industrial and cultural dimensions of the historic tea-growing Muzha area.

    Sample a cup of free tea


    The Tea Promotion Center is ~ 20 min walk from the Gondola stn. It is a nice spot to take a rest, go use the clean restrooms & sample a cup of tea. The small museum (free) has a few harvesting equipment & displays showing how the tea are harvested & processed. Outside in the courtyard, there is a small garden (self-guided) trail showing the different types of tea plants. You cab buy fish food ($10ntd/bag) to feed the koi fish in the indoor pond. The koi fish will follow you around waiting for treats. The facility has a wheelchair accessible lift.

    Great tea tasting


    The visitor centre, is really only one room showing you how tea was made in the past and how it is made now. The best part is the free tea tasting from one of the local tea growers. We sat with them for 30 mins sampling different types of tea. Very kind people, excellent tea.

    Good for understanding tea


    Great to see how tea is made and you're also able to try some of it. It's a bit far away compared to the other places but I'd say it's worth it- there's also a "healthy trail" which is very nice just out on the opposite side of this place.

    Could be better but have a free tea


    We walked along here from the cable car station and there are great views along the way. The centre offers a free cup of tea but not much else. There are toilets and entry is free. Stop in if you are passing.

    Must visit! Clean facility and comp tea!


    The Tea Promotion Center is about a 20 minute walk from the Gondola station. I read 15 but no way was it 15! In it, there is a small, teeny tiny museum of tea machinery, a pond of fish that you can feed for $10NT, and a tea information table where they teach you about tea and how to pour it, etc. Oh, and when you walk in, you can grab a clean cup from the cabinet and serve yourself tea and sit at the tables and enjoy the view. There are also tea houses in the area but we didn't get to do that because we got our tea fix at the Promotion Center and had a dinner reservation to get to. We took the bus down which was crazy. There are lots of twists and turns and the driver drives as if he's in a race to get down. It's nuts and nauseous. The bus is packed full of people but it's super cheap at $15NT.
