We offer tea classes and tastings out of our home base in Hualien city and online for those that can't make to the beautiful Island of Taiwan. If you are coming to Taiwan but don't have a full day to come on a tour with us, get in touch to schedule a tasting at our warehouse. (We don't have a tearoom yet but we are working on it) If you are specifically interested in a certain type of tea just let us know and we can organize a tasting based around it alone, or we can just do an introduction to Taiwanese teas in general. 

We are located a short walk from the Hualien train station. If you are interested please don't hesitate to get in touch!

For Example

1 -- A simple tea tasting of some of the teas offered by Mountain Stream Teas at our home base in Hualien City.

2 -- A more in depth class about a certain aspect of tea like differences in season taste profiles, how to know 'quality tea', or tea terroirs for example.

3 -- An online class about a topic of your choosing. We can schedule a time and topic to fit everyone's time zones.
