Recently-opened Qing Ting Dian Sheui is a fancy store that sells beverages to health-conscious consumers. Their signature products include energy drinks, which are said to assist in detox, and high-fiber, low-calorie teas made from agar. Apart from freshly made vegetable and fruit juice (NT$80), the Asian-inspired energy drinks (NT$60) here are favorite guest choices. The owner explained that, instead of brown sugar, they use Stevia Rebaudiana Leaves and Momordica Fruit (LuoHan Guo) as sweeteners. The Agar Teas (NT$50-80) are made with real agar pulp, which is a nice addition. Besides drinks, the store provides breakfast meals (NT$80-120), simple meal sets (NT$80-120), salads (NT$120) and snacks (NT$30-60), as well as an area with facial cleansers and hair products to help you freshen up. To-go orders come with a 50% drink discount. --By Vincent Huang, translated by Ann Lee
