A-Mei Tea House (Jiufen Old Street) Jiufen’s most infamous teahouse: Article From Travel.TaiwanMe.com

A-Mei Tea House is a popular teahouse located in the heart of Jiufen Old Street market. The teahouse gets its name from it’s original owner and operator, A Mei. Its beautiful architectural exterior has made Amei Tea House Jiufen’s most recognisable landmark and is often used as a backdrop for Instagram photos and on Taiwanese travel brochures.

A-Mei Tea House has a long and interesting history, originally being built as a blacksmith by Amei’s grandfather in the early 20th century. During this period Jiufen was undergoing considerable economic growth due to a gold mining rush in the area with blacksmith serving as an important shop and repairer for tools used in the surrounding gold mines. After the height of the gold rush Jiufen turned from a gold mining town into a market, during which time Amei transformed the spacious shop into the beautiful teahouse is resembles today.

The interior is broken into east and west wings. The east wing being used exclusively for tea tasting while the west wing is used for dining and includes a gift shop.

Spirited Away

Although previously denied, it is often purported that the A-Mei Tea House and Jiufen Old Streets served as inspiration for the town featured in cult-phenomenon Spirited Away. In a 2013 interview, director Hayao Miyazaki publicly refuted any relationship between Jiufen and his 2001 Japanese animated fantasy. Whether or not Jiufen Old Street or A-Mei Tea House did in fact serve as inspiration for the film, there is no denying their striking resemblance.
