The 2006 Taipei Tea Culture Expo

"The Taipei Tea Culture Expo 台北茶文化博覽會 will be held at Taipei Arena 台北小巨蛋 from September 6-10, starting at noon on the 6th and 9 a.m. on the other days. The Expo will gather Taiwan's famous teashops and representatives from prominent tea growing areas to exhibit their teas, offering visitors tastes of the many homegrown aromas that exist on the island. Visitors can also make their own tea-related products and learn to pack tea. In conjunction with the event, Taipei's Department of Cultural Affairs is also setting up month-long activities enabling participants to take tea plantation tours in Nangang and Mujha every Saturday in September."

My guess is that most of you won't be able to come to the Expo on such a short notice! Don't cry! Taipei City has set up a website that will let you tour the Expo from your desktop. Just click here. A little warning: many pages are still 'under construction'.
