Ho Tuo Cha Juan
793 Ta Tun Rd.
Tel:(04) 2308-8989
Hours:10am~3am

The calligraphy sign above the door of this teahouse is what first attracted my attention and probably had something to do with my visit to the Taiwan Museum of Art earlier in the day.

Outside the entrance are tables with large cream-colored sun umbrellas, giving a relaxed casual feeling which is carried over into the teahouse's interior. The decor inside is simple with ceiling-to-floor windows that look out onto a tree-shaded area. On one wall are black and white photos of lotus-filled ponds. And, the bar area is done up in dark wood. Clearly, this is a very friendly open place, where you can feel comfortable coming alone or with a group of friends.

In addition to the types of tea found in most teahouses, Ho Tuo Cha Juan offers 'health teas' and 'flower and fruit teas' (NT$80 to NT$120).  According to the manager, Tsai Chih-chang, the ingredients used for making the teas have been "specially selected".  No flavored tea bags are used.

Food choices include set meals ranging in price from NT$120 to NT$130. Kimchee--spicy pickled cabbage--hot pot (NT$130), herbal chicken soup (NT$130) and mini hot pot (NT$160) are also available.  The manager also recommends the taro root cake and buffalo wings if you are just looking for a snack (NT$40 to NT$50). 

This is one teahouse where you won't need to spend a lot of money to enjoy quality leisure time.
