First introduced by British businessmen that had entered Fujian Province in the middle of the 19th Century, tea has become the symbol of Taiwanese dietary culture. Tea is included in the “seven necessities,” among which are firewood, rice, oil, salt, sauce, vinegar, and tea. As the elder make tea at home, hipsters like to go to elegant teahouses, and handshake tea stores are seen everywhere on the street, tea has become a part of Taiwanese people’s life. Taiwan tea is also a good option as a gift for foreign friends, because it is fancy and represents Taiwan.
Even though Taiwan tea is fascinating, cities are only full of the aroma of coffee. Within the diverse tea culture of Taiwan, we established Chatime Lounge, which combines Chinese and Western features, to bring Taiwan high mountain tea back to cities. Combining tradition with modernity, the experience of tea drinking is no longer exclusive to intellectuals, but a kind of lifestyle across generations. It allows busy urban people to enjoy the experience of tea drinking and feel the charm of tea aroma, so that people can retrieve their passion for life to enjoy every moment.
As Chatime wishes to give you the best, we have visited tea gardens around Taiwan. We found the most fascinating tea flavors and discovered local people’s warm hospitality during our quest, and feeling touched, we started the program to cultivate “tea masters.” We invited people with passion to the Chatime Lounge for strict selection and training. The quality of tea is also ensured by the most standardized process, technique, service, and knowledge. We try our best to serve everyone who visits Chatime Lounge.
Chatime Lounge’s first store around the globe is a modern and artistic teahouse. Instead of just a place for drinking tea, this well-designed space feels like home with relaxing and warm atmosphere, soft music, natural tea aroma, and fine service. Whether visiting alone or spending time with family and friends here, everyone will fall in love with Chatime Lounge, as it makes tea drinking more than just enjoying a cup of tea, but a symbol of fashion and fun.
