HIGHLIGHTS
  • • Meet local tea farmers who embody the spirit of Taiwanese tea
  • • Experience a hands-on experience roasting and rolling tea leaves
  • • Sample various types of tea like oolong and green tea

Experience firsthand how organic Taiwanese tea is grown and produced at a real operating tea farm in Yilan that still uses traditional tea processing methods passed down by generations. Pick leaves with a local tea farmer at the plantation and learn how they are harvested (without modern machines) and prepared to become tasty cups of Oolong. Then, experience a rare, hands-on experience learning how to roll and roast tea leaves. After a lunch of traditional Yilan cuisine, head to a quaint pottery house and coffee shop for some therapeutic ceramics painting. There, you will learn the ancient art of decorating blue and white China in a DIY class and will even take home your very own souvenir!(*) Discover the beauty of the small town of Yilan with this slow travel experience!



*Guests can decide to join the DIY class or purchase a piece of China with a $NTD500 deduction. Additional costs and wait time of China (approximately two months by mail) apply to those wishing to purchase their self-decorated masterpieces.
