Taiwan Day One: A Stroll and Wistaria Tea House


Hello!  Day one of Taiwan trip was great!  We arrived in the early morning and stowed our stuff at the hotel. I love the location, in a part of the city that still feels historic. More like a neighborhood than a giant metropolis. Scooters are everywhere!  Taiwan feels more relaxed to me than China. 

 As we walked around the neighborhood, we saw several tea shops. This man waits to offer a tasting. Below, we spent a leisurely afternoon at the famous Wistaria Teahouse enjoying delicious teas, lunch and snacks. A perfect way to settle in. Then it was off to an early bedtime for us. Tod
ay we visit a Baozhong farmer!

I am going to love following along with you. It brings back so many wonderful memories of our travels here two years ago. Loved the Wisteria Tea House and the place you are staying.

How fun to visit places where tea is so much a part of their culture.
