Tea Sage Hut is located in Miaoli City, Taiwan. Miaoli City is about 1.5 hour drive from Taipei, and just over an hour’s drive from Taoyuan International Airport (TPE). The Hut is close to Miaoli train station, which is located on the Taiwan Railway Administration (TRA) Western Line. At the time of writing, the Miaoli High Speed Rail (HSR) Station is still under construction, but may be an option as of late 2015 or early 2016. If you are taking the train, note that the TRA and HSR trains are different lines with different stations.Coming from anywhere in Taiwan:
The Hut is best reached by train (TRA). From the train station, we can try to arrange to pick you up, or you can arrive by taxi. The drive is only about 5 minutes and taxi fare is about 100NT. Even if you are confirmed on our calendar, please let us know in advance how you plan to come to the Hut. This way we can offer help or plan appropriately for your arrival time.
Coming from Taoyuan International Airport (TPE):
Note: If you are arriving at Taoyuan International Airport after 8 PM, please spend a night in Taoyuan (the city where the airport is located) or Taipei, etc. before traveling to the center. There are a few ways to arrive at the Hut from the airport.
1) Private taxi:
We will call a private taxi to pick you up from the airport and bring you directly to our center. We must book your taxi at least 2 days before your arrival date. Once we book the taxi, we will send you a confirmation e-mail!
* The driver will wait for you in the Arrival Hall of the airport, with your name on a sign. Expect the taxi to take around one hour, and cost 1900$NT.2) TRA Train: Airport — Taoyuan Train Station — Miaoli Train Station:
Hail your own taxi from the airport to the Taoyuan Train Station (NOT the high speed rail station). The ride should be around 25 minutes, around 600$NT.
From Taoyuan Station, you can take a train to Miaoli Station (up to 1 hour 40 minutes, and up to 190$NT) .
*There is also a bus from TPE to Taoyuan Station, but it runs infrequently and requires some walking/navigating. We recommend the train to our guests.
