Daxi Tea Factory, Daxi District, Taoyuan City, Taiwán
Nestled in the mountains of Taoyuan county is the old Daxi Tea Factory. The factory has been a constant fixture in the town over the past century, but it had lived in obscurity and a state of abandonment for the past twenty five years.
Interest in the factory spiked in the last year or so and (if you are on Instagram and have seen anything from #Taiwan) you’re bound to have seen quite a few shots of Taiwanese girls taking selfies or posing in the factory. The factory is becoming a popular day trip for people living in the northern part of the country for its retro atmosphere and the beautiful light inside the factory turned museum-style tea shop and restaurant.
