Yingge, Taiwan. The biggest tea/puerh sign I've ever seen so far. :P
Taken with a phone at full zoom so quality is really bad. The sign is actually quite a way from where I was standing.

I will be heading to Taiwan for my honeymoon at the end of March.

Will be spending the first couple days at Sun Moon Lake, followed by a few days perhaps in Tai Chung(Not confirmed yet, might go Tai Dong or Tai Nan depending). And the last few days in Taipei.

Right now the only tea plans i have for the trip is only for Taipei,
1) Jiu Fen - i found a tea shop there that sells Da Yu Ling which is comparable to what Hojo sells but at a fraction of the price.

2) Lin's Ceramics - i'm planning to head to its' concept store in Taipei if i can find it. and IF there's a decent difference in price compared to Malaysia, i might pick up an item or two. if not, i'll just get it when i'm back home. :)

So... for now what i'd like to know is if there's any tea merchants/shops anyone could recommend to me in Taipei and also Tai Chung?

I will be looking for teapots, teawares and perhaps some taiwanese teas as well such as Jin Xuan Milk Oolong, and maybe anything interesting i taste along the way.

I found this shop via FB called 石陶村 (Shi3 Tao2 Cun1) and they seem to sell really awesome pots, anyone dealt with them or reckon a visit woul be in order? am interested in checking out their Da Hong Pao Zhu Ni pots, which i know will cost me an arm and a leg....hehe.
