The last time I was in Taipei(about 2 years ago) I found this cool little tea house off of Chung Siao East road I believe(one block to the north?).
Anyway it was called Bear’s Timberland or just Timberland if memory serves me correctly. Cute little place. It was kinda hidden by ivy i think. Inside was decorated mostly in wood. Looked like a dolls house with little stuffed bears and crafts for sale all over the place.
Really nice ambiance and the teas and service were great. Not a high volume place. I think only one person or two were ever working at one time.
Does anyone know the one I’m talking about?
I much prefer the little mom & pop places to the big chains like Starbucks that seem to be taking over the world with their cookie cutter look and total lack of personality.
