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.

    Local Tea Local Farm

    2018-05

    A good place to visit if you are making a trip to Wenshan. Do note that you may not be charged for tea but those serving tea are actually local farmers whose farms are inaccessible and are allocated a schedule by the government at the centre to promote their tea. Do not take advantage of them! Do buy from the farmers if you really want to help their community. Additional activity: You can buy fish feed at NT10 and feed the overweight kois while enjoying the scenery.

    Sample a cup of free tea

    2018-04

    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

    2018-04

    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

    2017-04

    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

    2017-03

    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.
