The old story of a Hakka tea house
Xixin Tea House is the restaurant outsourced by Tri-mountain National Scenic Area Headquarters. It was the former dormitory for teachers of Shishan Elementary School and reconstructed into a Hakka tea house by combining the concept the “purity only emerges after the evil has been cleared” and traditional design of slanted roof.

Welcoming visitors with its new outlook, the elegant tea house architecture blends in seamlessly with its surrounding, providing a nice spot to rest both body and mind.

Taste the local Hakka delicacies
In addition to the quaint Hakka decoration, Xixin Tea House also provides the individual set meal, Hakka vegetarian dishes and group meals.

The signature dish one cannot miss is the tung flower set meal. Served in a retro ceramic pot with tung flower design, there are dishes such as high mountain vegetable, fried shredded pork with cuttlefish and braised pork served with rice.

During the quiet afternoon, you can take a stroll on the Liouliao Trail or Tengping Trail. When you are tired, you can sit at the outdoor dining area and enjoy a pot of cold-brewed oriental beauty tea and handmade Hakka mochi.

It certainly provides a different travelling flavor to be able to rest and gaze at the mountains afar. If you don’t wish to part with local Hakka delicacies, you can purchase candied fruits and tea leaves and take them home with you.

The private attraction for seeing tung flowers
There are several century-old tung trees near Xixin Tea House, which have become a must-visit attraction for admiring tung flowers during its blooming season in April and May. If you wish to avoid the large crowds during holidays, you are advised to visit during weekdays to enjoy its rare ease and tranquility.
