The well-established tea shop was bustling

Getting off the subway at Daqiaotou Station, I was walking the streets of the Datong district. For a change, I had a clean-cut destination on that day. Therefore, I went straight to the destination. There was a well-established tea shop in this area. I had visited two years ago and wanted to visit again. Walking a wide street for a while, I pitched up.

The history of Taiwanese tea is not so long. It was counted as the beginning of Taiwanese tea when the tea plant was brought from the mainland of China in the late 18 century by a merchant. And it became the focus of attention after the Opium War because the Tamsui port in the north part of Taiwan became one of the treaty ports.

In the shop, various kinds of Chinese tea were sold. And the shop clerks were working busily to handle orders. Although this shop was a wholesale shop, it was also possible to buy retail. I bought some kinds of tea here.

By the way, the name of this tea shop is Linhua tea shop.
