Feeling the Guan Ding Tea House warmth

guan-ding-teahouse-4After our gondola ride, the breezy cold wind greeted us at Maokong Station. As much as we wanted to tour the place, it was a bit dark. This teahouse shed some light. As we entered its warm interiors, we readied ourselves for some comforting tea.

guan-ding-teahouse-matcha-red-bean-waffles-2To be honest, this was pretty ordinary for me. It’s a pretty good waffle but I didn’t get the matcha or red bean taste much. It’s a little crunchy and not that sweet. I was glad that it was paired with some fruits and dollops of whipped cream.
