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.

    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.

    Nice place to stop by


    It's free entry and comes with a small area which briefly introduces various types of tea. It also serves free TieGuanYin which you can drink and chill while looking at greenery. (If you are ok budget) you don't have to visit the cafes since there is free tea here. It's a good pitstop before you embark your journey to the various trails. I went to Pothole using the Tea Promotional Centre Trail. *TA Honest Reviews*

    A Small Tea Exhibit and thats about it


    Its a 15 min walk to to the center from the Maokong Station and there really is not much to see besides the small tea exhibit (which the plaques are all in Chinese so if you do not know Chinese you will not be able to understand the exhibit). They do offer free tea (it was the TieGuangYin Tea) but if order to see the tea garden you have to have a tour scheduled ahead of time. I was not able to get someone to give us a tour when we went. It was a lot of walking to get there just for some tea.
