Permanent Revolution of Tea

January 11, 2011 § Leave a comment

On Saturday night, after the hustle and bustle of the Shida Night Market, we went to a tea shop close to the Zhongxiao-Dunhua MRT station. I was taken aback by the very modern, funky decor. I don’t know why I expected a more traditional place. It’s not called the Permanent Revolution of Tea for nothing.

Our group had the enclosed lounge area to ourselves.

As soon as we sat down, the waiter brought over three little cups of dried tea leaves and asked us to choose one which he would then place in the burner. We chose the Oolong tea, because he said it the aroma is very calming, and it was close to our bedtime.

The menu was in Chinese. Now that I think back, we didn’t request English menus, so they might actually have some.

Again, we told the group to order what they thought was fitting for us, so they ordered a variation of Green Tea for me and a pot of Taiwanese Oolong for A.

We were both very pleased with our teas. They were smooth and rich in flavour. They were also very cleansing and fresh.

We also had a plate of sweet treats to share with our teas.

I ate most of the Sesame sweets 🙂 I love sesame seeds. I have even been adding black sesame seeds to my cereal in the mornings recently.

I strongly recommend anyone in Taipei City to visit this tea shop and experience a modern twist on a Taiwanese tradition. Visit the website at  http://www.wretch.cc/blog/prottea if you can read Chinese 🙂
