Taiwan is known for its high-quality tea and starting this weekend, the 2015 Nantou Global Tea Festival will again showcase a wide variety of best tea products the island has to offer.

Organizers say during the 9-day event, visitors will get to taste many kinds of tea, watch how some of the tea products are made, and view artists’ creations of exquisite tea sets.

42 tea makers selected from across the island will also compete for the national champion title in making tea, and visitors can choose from different whole-day DIY tea activities, including a trip to tea plantations.

The festival runs from Oct. 3 to 11 in central Taiwan’s Zhong-xing New Village and the National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute.
