Souvenir sheet: Taiwanese Tea

As a dedicated tea drinker I couldn’t resist this souvenir sheet: the teas of Taiwan. Elegantly presented, and with a nice graduation of colour from left to right. Each stamp also features a teapot cutout.

Stamp Details

From the Chunghwa Post web site (tea / background image):

Left to right

  • Baozhong tea / Pinglin Tea Museum
  • Tieguanyin tea / Maokong Gondola
  • Black tea / Sun Moon Lake Wharf
  • Oolong tea / Alishan Forest Train

The Chunghwa Post web site also describes the qualities of the teas featured on the souvenir sheet. Worth a read, over a cup of tea.
