The mission of TasteaTaiwan
I created Tasteataiwan.com in order to promote tea in the way that is understood in Chinese culture. A product part of daily life and for any occasion. A joyful drink that can be the perfect excuse to gather with friends or the main character of a solemn ceremony. In TasteaTaiwan I offer you a selection of the best and most sought Taiwanese teas. And delivers them to your home directly from Taiwan. Leave it in my hands.
Claim this millenary drink, part of mankind. But in a real and honest way, focusing on the most important: the flavor. Like and enjoy it. No lies to sell you a bad product where the packaging is more important than the tea. I find the best teas I can, all natural without added ingredients and if the quality follows, organic and from small producers. With all the details and information. Without half truths.
Tasteataiwan is born from someone who arrived to Taiwan and started seeing tea everywhere. Something different from the bitter drink that needs sugar I was used to. Tea that is part of the people, part of the culture and traditions. Traditions that have to be shared. I started to take classes and still do. I don’t have the most expensive teas, just passion about it and will to give and show. I taste a lot of teas and offer those I think you might like the most.
Some light, pure, green and flowery. Others sweet and buttery. Soft with ripe and dried fruits. Red fruits and honey. Powerful with the taste of earth, rain and wet wood. Many flavors I didn’t know a tea could have. A tradition with more than 3 thousand years but still fashionable. An art worth to be enjoyed. Flavors that need to be shared.
Tea is for everybody
Properties and benefits

Health and wellness
- Tea goes by hand in the daily routine of some of the longest-lived peoples on Earth. After water is the most consumed drink. Tea is a perfect element of a healthy diet and of a healthy life style.
¿Who is behind TasteaTaiwan.com?
- My name is Antonio Egea and I was born a morning in 1.983 in Madrid, Spain.
- I needed a change from my job in Hewlett-Packard and in 2.102 I decided to come to Taiwan to study Chinese.
- I like to be alone and I am open-minded, probably a consequence of living so far for a long time.
- I love Chinese culture and discovered it through the Game of Go (Weiqi, Baduk) more than 15 years ago. My other hobbies are to study Chinese and practice WingChun kungfu, thing I’ve done for more than 6 years. I am also very interested in Chinese calligraphy.
- I studied Computer Science but as you see my heart follows a different path.
- A lot of friends came to visit me to Taiwan, Ilha Formosa and I encourage you to do the same. A stunning beautiful place full of good people. A paradise if you love nature, food… and tea.
- Just after my arrival here I discovered the real tea, the one that doesn’t come in teabags and I thought it was a pity we don’t know about it in Occident. To promote it TasteaTaiwan was born.
