As I mentioned last week, we made whirlwind trip to Tainan towards the end of September.  Don’t be fooled by the flurry of activities, it was actually a very relaxing mini-break.  When we were wandering in the shopping area across from the Confucius temple, we discovered a tiny tea house tucked into one of the alleyways.



This tea house is in two apartment buildings. One apartment building has a gift shop and the other houses just two tables. One downstairs, and the other one upstairs. The drinks were pretty unmemorable,  but the staff was welcoming and friendly.  She even brought us some complimentary cookies and dried fruits to go with our drinks

After she went back downstairs, it really felt like we were sitting around in the living room of our own house. It was a treat to sit down, and just rest our feet and enjoy the cool air conditioning. The funny thing is, even though we didn’t do anything out of the ordinary, this little pause was one of the best moments of the day for me.  We sat and chatted about work, about life, and about everything in between, before heading back out into the sunshine to continue our trip.
