  6. Hi Tony,
    Pasted below are links to blogs that I wrote on this event that happens every October in Taiwan. It hosts over 200 Tea vendors and puts on all kinds of cultural activities. In recent years the expo goes for nine days from Saturday to the following Sunday with the October 10 holiday falling somewhere therein.
