about Shiding - Thousand Island Lake and The Tea

Want to experience the local tea culture in Taipei? Then you definitely cannot miss Maokong and Shiding. Located in the suburb area of Taipei City, they could be easily accessed by a day trip. In the morning we are going to take the Maokong Gondola to Maokong, a popular place for tea culture and viewing the night scenery of Taipei City. And you will have a chance to taste the local Tieguanyin tea (鐵觀音) and special delicacy related to tea.

A visit to the lush Thousand Island Lake and Bagua Tea Plantation in the afternoon is a wonderful retreat from a city life. Because the landscape and climate of Feitsui Reservoir are ideal for growing tea, including the well-known Wanshan Pouchong (文山包種茶) and Dongfang Meiren (東方美人茶, lit. Oriental Beauty), it is also a noted tea plantation area in northern Taiwan. Before ending this tour, a visit to the famous Stinky-Tofu Street - Shenkeng Old Street, will be an exciting "refresh" after all the tea aroma surfing. Dare to try it or not?
