Many people go to Jiu Fen for tea. Thus, many of the teahouses there are decorated in gaudy styles to attract tourists. However, Miner¡¦s Tea House is an exception, with a more modest, down-to-earth feeling. In addition, its perch on top of a hill offers vast, beautiful views that includes the distant ocean. On a good day, you can see several local ports. The night views are also spectacular.

The owner is a native of Jiu Fen and often tells interesting stories about the history of the area. He is also very willing to teach customers the fine art of brewing Chinese tea, so don¡¦t be afraid to ask. The prices here are very reasonable, which helps this teahouse attract a large local clientele. The log tables and chairs exude a very rustic Taiwanese charm. A wide variety of Chinese teas are available, including PuErh from mainland China and TieKuanYin. Although all of the teas are of very high quality, most customers only end up spending about NT$200 per person.--By Ken Lin
