Have a retreat away from the city’s hustle and bustle, and immerse yourself in tea aroma and natural greenery.

In this tour, you will marvel at stunning scenery of Thousand Island Lake and the endless rows of tea plantation. And have an opportunity to experience the culture of tea appreciation.

Meet your tour guide and driver in the morning, relax and enjoy a scenic drive along the mountain road, we will take you to Shiding, a rural district of New Taipei City.

Located in the south of Shiding District., Thousand Island Lake, also known as Qiandao Lake in Chinese literally means a lake with thousands of islands. Shared the same name with the famous attraction in Zhejiang Province of Mainland China, the catchment area of Feitsui Reservoir surrounded by hills creates a similar scenery.

The natural terrain and climate make the surrounding area of Feitsui Reservoir an ideal farmland for tea-growing, including the well-known Wanshan Pouchong and Dong Fang Mei Ren(literally means “Oriental Beauty Oolong Tea”). The noted tea plantation Bagua Tea Garden is located in this area too, from the top of the hill, the neatly planted rows of tea look just like the symbols of Eight Trigrams.

Continue your half-day tour through a 15-min drive to Pinglin District, where the famous Wanshan Pouchong is cultivated. Your guide and the tea instructor explain the culture, history, and how to properly brew Taiwanese tea during your visit to Pinglin Tea Museum or Pinglin Old Street (first Monday of every month). Here you also have a chance to taste the tea samples.

Your tour ends with return transport to your Taipei hotel in the noon.
