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.

    三井農林が日東紅茶を作っていた工場跡です

    Traveler rating:5 2019-10

    南園1泊ツアーの途中で寄りました。日本が輸出用として紅茶を製造していた工場をリノベートして観光施設にしています。現在は価格面で安い紅茶に対抗できないのでささやかに自然農法で栽培したウーロン茶や紅茶を製造しています。昔の製法を説明する映像(日本語字幕あり)を見た後50分ほどの案内をしてもらいました。トイレが外の離れた建物にあるのは臭いが茶に移らないためなどの説明が面白かった。ただし中国語なのでツアーガイドの通訳が必要でした。レストランが併設されており美味しい茶葉料理が楽しめます。種々のお茶や茶飴などお土産も充実しています。

    很有質感的觀光工廠,延續古樸的空間,陳列很多製茶老機器,是個拍照的好地方。一樓的靜水餐廳別有洞天,有時間可以在此喝茶或用餐,餐點好吃唯主餐分量偏少,整體而言很適合一家大小來個半天小旅行。

    以觀光茶廠來說作的非常完整,在場內的機器設備介紹牌中英日文都有附上,有影片還有定時的專門人員導覽,假日平日都有, 解說也是訓練過很專業,產品包裝與設計也非常的完整,附設的茶書屋提供的餐食與飲料點心也豐富多元,茶廠的整體極具質感,有許多的觀光團,有每日奉茶,還販售周邊的蔬果,入園門票每人一百元,可以抵消費。

    覺得內容一般般

    Traveler rating:3 2018-12

    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。
