Oldest+tea+shop+in+Tainan 4 Touring Tainan : The oldest tea shop in Taiwan tainan taiwan chinese culture It makes sense that the oldest tea shop in Taiwan would be in Tainan – the oldest city in Taiwan. A Chinese exchange student friend took me to a place I would otherwise probably never know about – a 5 (or was it 6) generations running family tea-shop in Tainan.

Welcoming us in his pajamas was someone who looked as old as the tea-shop – an unbelievably cute Taiwanese who’s running the place.

He was a very curious guy, asking us a lot of question and was especially interested to learn things about me, even my possible romantic relationship with the friend. I loved it when before leaving, after being explained I live in the west side and she lives in the east side, he asked – “oh, so you don’t live together?”. After hearing that “we’re not together” he asked “but why you don’t live together?”.

You may have noticed that he carries his tea in some very very old cases, which contain some exotic highly-priced tea from all over. He put out some for us, going from 50 to a 100NT$ per “Liang” Taiwanese measure (which isn’t a lot).

So, what kind of tea do you have? :

Sweet guy, right? He kind’o takes pleasure in doing things slowly and thoroughly. Like packaging our tea for us while I was trying to figure out how someone can know about this place :

So, where is it? 137 Mingchuan road, sec 1. Go pay him a visit.
