Visitors and residents interested in sampling and learning more about outstanding Taiwanese teas have yet another excellent option in this classy new tea shop, situated on one side of Millennium Hotel’s lobby. In the middle is a counter where several customers can sit together while a knowledgeable staff member expertly brews up five excellent teas to sample (NT$199/person). With the help of smelling and tasting cups, customers are guided through the various fragrances and flavors. Sourced from smaller local tea farmers, options (changing seasonally) include Red Jade Black Tea, Assam Black Tea, Lishan Oolong Tea, Cingjiang Oolong Tea, and Honey Flavored Alpine Black Tea. An attractive showroom off to the side has another area that can be reserved, plus for-sale tea leaves (NT$420-980, 75g), tea snacks, and a wide range of pottery tea cups, containers, pots and other items beautifully crafted by local Nantou County artists.
