I almost forgot about one of the Taiwan experiences that was definitely noteworthy! That's what I get for storing the pictures in another folder.
On my last day in Taiwan, before heading off to the airport, Jules and I (and later Katannya) bused over to Wistaria Tea House for a classic tea service and an early lunch.
We started with a tea of Jules' choosing.
Luckily, the server was a very kind lady who took us through
the ceremony in English so that we could do it right.
|Coconut tea cakes. Yum!|
|The tea I chose is called "Lotus in a Golden Wind."I chose it mainly for it's name, but the description is pretty convincing, as well.|
It was a yummy choice: light and fruity.
When we were through our second batch of tea, it was lunch time!
To my surprise all the lunches were Japanese-style.
It turns out that this tea house was created during the Japanese occupation of Taiwan.
No matter the style, it was delicious!
Thanks for the lovely tea time, ladies! It was a great way to end a marvelous vacation!
