There are few places in Taiwan as tea crazy as Pinglin 坪林 in New Taipei City. I don’t think I saw a single building that didn’t have the Chinese character for tea on it while I was there. What better place for a tea museum? Pinglin is a definite must-do for anyone obsessed with the beverage. Even if you’re not, you will be wowed by the beautiful scenery. Check out more from my visits.
