Has anybody managed to find or eat shrooms in Taiwan? Somebody recently told me they’re not hard to find if you’re living in Taichung. I find this surprising. Local people in that area aren’t fond of them, are they?! Perhaps I’m wrong, but Taiwanese don’t strike me as the kind of people who’d take a shine to shrooms. Even when I was in Thailand, the local people where dumbfounded that anyone would willingly put such a thing into their body.
They’re called “het” in Thai. What’s the Taiwanese word for them? A local slang word, even one in Taiyu, would help me much more than a scientific term.
Seems to me places like Qingjing Nongchang, and other such places in Nantou, could do a thriving under the table business if they decided to cater to foreign shroom tourists.
