How to really ENJOY (not "drink"!) tea
Jan 2020
On this beautiful and effortless 5-hour excursion, we learned about the history and traditions surrounding tea in Taiwan. Our guide had deep knowledge of the area, including the names of virtually every plant we encountered. The scenery was spectacular -- both the long-distance vistas and the many varieties of flowering plants. The capstone was our 45-minute visit with a 5th-generation tea farmer, who had a sweet and engaging personality and wonderful skill brewing and pouring tea. It was mesmerizing just watching and listening to him.

Visit to Thousand Island Lake and Lingling Tea Plantation

Ruth is a good and helpful guide. The vehicle used was well-maintained. The pace of the tour was right except for the part to the tea museum. Would have been better if theres a little more time allocated.

A nice experience for nature and tea lovers.
Dec 2019
It was an exhilarating tour perfect for those who want to see the mountain regions of Taiwan and imbibe its fresh air while enjoying the picturesque view of the lake and tea plantations surrounding it. Our service van was clean and spacious with an efficient and competent driver.
Our tour guide, Mr. Tony Lim of Edison Travel was very accommodating, knowledgeable and converses in good English. The pick-up and drop-off at the hotel were also prompt.
The tea tasting session followed by the visit to the Tea Museum expands one’s knowledge and appreciation of this wonderful drink.
As it tends to rain occasionally in the mountains during the winter months, an umbrella or any rain gear would come in handy. It was overall a nice experience for the nature and tea lovers.

Good Half-Day Tour
Nov 2019
This was a great short trip from Taipei and a fun way to spend a half day outside the city. The tour guide spoke English well and provided good insights on the history and current practices. The stops were perfect - from the Thousand Island Lake beautiful view to the great tea tasting at a local shop to the very modern and interactive museum. I'm typically not much of a museum person but that one was really unique and I could have spent even more time there to discover all the neat interactive elements.
