Yue, Sous Chef
As a native of Beijing, I feel honored and privileged to work at Destination Taiwan. Authenticity plays an important role here, and our customers do expect us to uphold this. From my perspective, what we are doing is more like a process of rectification for certain local traditional foods while they have been replicated, resembled, over-modified, or even taken away and claimed to other cultural heritage on western stage. I believe attitude determines the taste. Our customers deserve better from us.

Now working as an independent consultant, Shu-Shin provides tea consultancy services to our business. Her finely tuned taste buds, extensive knowledge and infectious passion for tea know no bounds.
