Traditional tea-purchasing channels include not only tea shops and department stores but also via tea farmers themselves. Established in 2013, the Taiwan Tea Co-Op brings tea growers together from all over Taiwan to centralize marketing and export efforts, and provide a big shopping venue to retail the best teas, 100% produced in Taiwan, including those from Lishan, Alishan and various Nantou county districts. Tea lovers can come here and learn about Taiwan's tea varieties while they shop, and there are also various tea gift and snack set options available, making this an ideal destination for anyone seeking tea-related products and take-home souvenirs.
