The Center is Nangang’s latest landmark; it is less than a 20 minute drive from downtown Nangang. It features an elegant, relaxing ambience and, during the weekends, it serves as a venue for various tea promotional activities, such as tea tasting workshop, DIY planting, English afternoon tea, and Japanese tea ceremony, etc. It has been tasked with the mission of promoting Nangang tea plantations’ recreation and tea culture.
The Center consists of a tea-processing machine exhibition room, tea cultural artifact exhibition hall, and tea activities and teaching area, in which visitors can learn about the tea manufacturing process, witness the glorious history of Nangang tea, brew their own tea, learn about tea brewing, and taste the aromatic Nangang Pouchong tea. The Center also supports a rich ecological environment. In early summer, fireflies can be spotted in the bushes, and during autumn, Osmanthus fragrance lingers in the air. It is also Taipei City’s only tea plantation landscape, where professional guides offer in-depth ecological tours on “Dustpan Lake Osmanthus Trail”, “Dakeng Creek Osmanthus Suspension Bridge Trail” and “Circular Boardwalk”. The Center is an ideal place for relaxation, tea tasting and chatting with friends, while overlooking Taipei basin and learning about Nangang’s special native plants and coal mine.
