Visiting Daxi Tea Factory is like beginning a leisurely journey of “Tea Time”. Daxi Tea Factory was formerly Jiaoban Mountain Factory, a tea factory built by the Japanese in 1926, which marked the glorious history of Daxi tea manufacturing. It was considered an “upstart tea” at that time. However, a fire in 1956 almost destroyed the entire tea factory. In 2010, Taiwan Tea Corporation began the reconstruction of the factory, bringing back to the public the elegance of the tea culture by incorporating new into the old after half a century.
The exterior of Daxi Tea Factory used India’s Darjeeling tea factory as its blueprint, while the interior is a fusion of Taiwanese and Japanese styles, incorporating a diversity of cultures. The color theme of the building is blue. The low-key blue tone of the window lattice, beam-column, shelves, walls, paintings, etc., fit perfectly with the brick and cypress frame of the tea factory. Under the covering of “Daxi Blue”, one can enjoy a leisurely chat over a cup of tea in the tranquil beauty and antique tea set cultivated over time. 
Savor the tea aroma and culture, and be mesmerized by every corner of the tea factory.
Stroll along the tranquil pond, and immerse yourself in the quiet moments away from the city. Admire the Pu-er tea wall made with hundreds of tea bricks, and indulge in the fragrance of tea preserved over the years. Relax in the reading corner, where time is lost in the world of words. And while enjoying tea and chatting with your friends in the tea house, don’t forget to drop a note in the scrapbook to leave a beautiful memory of this little journey.
Adapting to nature has always been the business principle of Daxi Tea Factory. No pesticides are used in the manufacturing process to promote safe and healthful eating. All of the products have passed SGS inspection. Limited reservation for the vegetarian buffet is open each month, where 15 local seasonal dishes filled with the fragrance of tea are served. With the sheer mouthfeel and refreshing sweetness, visitors will devour the elegance and charm of tea. There are also daily set meals for visitors to dabble in the simple but memorable culinary culture.

    入內參觀須要購買門票。門票費用雖可抵消費金額,但整體規劃內容很稀疏,幾乎都是商品的程列,沒有製茶等等過程的呈現,滿可惜的。

    休日以外の営業時間を選んで入場しましたが、案の定、場内には人の波がなく、静かで快適な散歩と写真撮影ができました。

    休日以外の営業時間を選んで入場しましたが、案の定、場内には人の波がなく、静かで快適な散歩と写真撮影ができました。 入場券は工場内の消費に割引されます。その後、お茶をたくさん買って家に帰って飲みます。古いお茶工場内にも当日入れた新鮮なお茶が無料で使えます。

    原本的行程並沒有老茶廠,因女兒說想去看看拍拍拍照所以就去了,它位於大溪與復興鄉之間,地點很好找,裡面有展示一些早期製茶的器具,也有販售一些食品及工藝品,是網美拍照的好地點。

    大溪老茶廠外觀以印度大吉嶺茶廠為藍圖,內部空間則是台日複合,極具多元文化。藍色為建築主色調,不論是窗櫺與樑柱、造型層架、牆面、藝術畫作等,不張揚的藍色調與這棟磚造混合檜木屋架的製茶工廠顯得格外契合
