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.
