It’s Rainy in Taipei: Things to Do in the City When it Pours

The rain shouldn't put a damper on your trip.

In the middle of a busy city like Taipei sits Wistaria House, a tranquil Japanese-style tea house built in the 1920s, marked by a wispy wisteria tree and an open gate on Xinsheng South Road. Arguably the most iconic tea house in the capital backed by a colorful past, this historic monument, as declared by the Taipei government in 1997, has been frequented by politicians, scholars, artists, and literati over the years.

Order your choice of cuppa from their selection of exquisite teas, or better yet, have a cupping session and learn the art of making tea from the tea house’s experienced staff, and stay for as long as you wish. A truly rejuvenating experience away from the tourist traps of the city, a visit at Wistaria Tea House is a definite must when in Taipei.
