Tea Time on a Super Rainy Day in Jioufen
I can only say… it was rather unfortunate that the weather was not good when we were up there. But I was able to drive up the winding mountain roads to this mining town. That was… (continue reading...)
…. 墓仔坡旁. 我的天啊… 不管是否心裡因素作祟, 但是就是不舒服啦. 不過這次算成功挑戰台灣山路 (彎呀彎呀彎, 我自己開車都有點想吐) , 除了超小巷子外和超窄單車道雙向行駛外, 我想台灣應該沒有甚麼地方我不敢開的吧.
The weather was pretty crappy for the day. Had to wear sunglasses when we got out in the morning. By noon time, things started to change. By the time we got to Kinkaseki, it was pouring rain. This was taken when we were eating the sweet taro and yam ball thing on the mountain.
重來沒有真正逛過老街的商家, 大部份就是走到盡頭, 邊走邊吃, 然後轉回來, 就走了. 這次來發現新大陸, 那個大鴨子的陶笛是真的可以吹！
Never really shopped on the Jioufen old street. Usually we’d just walk all the way to the end, have some food there or along the way and then turn around and leave. But this time I got to look more into the stores. By the way, that huge duck is a pottery flute that actually works!
My new toys for photo events.
Every time we talked of coming to Jioufen to have some tea (it’s kinda famous here). This time we finally chose a place to have some tea. This place looks like some travel/resting inn in the super old times.
第一次發現 我不只要在德國可以用日文, 在台灣也可以用日文, 一進門, 茶樓的人就直接把我們當日本人. 不過這邊是真的滿多日本遊客沒錯.
First time that I realized, outside of Japan, not only was I able to speak Japanese in Germany, I was also able to do the same here. When we entered the doors, we were greeted with Japanese. But it’s true that this place does have quite a lot of Japanese guests.
After you ordered your tea, there’d be someone here to teach you how to have the tea (how long you should put the tea in the teapot for, how do you smell the tea in the first run, etc.) After that, you’re on your own.
來這邊喝茶大概價格都在 400 到 1000 多 (光泡茶而已). 不過在這邊也算是種氣氛, 也是聊天的好地方.
To have tea here, you’re looking at somewhere around 400 to 1000 something TWD depending on what kind of tea you got. That’s just the tea part. You can order some side snacks. But I guess this is a nice place to have tea and chat with friends.
Plum sweets with the tea.
There’s another big teapot with hot water on the floor in case you need to add more water.

Before entering an old mine at the Gold Ecological Park in Kinkaseki. The doggy found its wind shield.
Finally got back to our safe zone and ready to go home!
