Brown Sugar Teahouse is one of the oldest vendors of brown sugar products on Jiufen Old Street. The owner, Xiao-zhen, has had extensive experience in the art of sugar making. She now focuses all of her efforts on the sale of high quality brown sugar. The raw material used to create her products, top grade Alishan brown sugar, is comparable in purity to brown sugar from Okinawa. All of the brown sugar products sold at the Brown Sugar Teahouse are meant to be brewed, with various flavors to meet customer demand. The brown sugar they sell is less refined and rich in vitamins and minerals, especially calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, and folic acid. The slightly bitter taste and markedly dark hue of their products demonstrates the purity of the brown sugar used. As there are no chemical preservatives in their products at all, the products must be kept in the fridge year round after purchase, or else they will start to go bad after 20 to 30 days. In addition to just brown sugar, the store also sells several popular products such as their brown sugar ginger tea, brown sugar winter melon tea, brown sugar longan tea, and brown sugar siwu soup. In addition, they also have a range of other products such as licorice roselle and pineapple kappaphycus. Small packaging is available so that it is easier for visitors to purchase these products as gifts. Why does she dedicate herself to the study of multiple languages? Xiao-zhen feels that it is a basic part of service etiquette to try and serve customers from different regions in the language they are most familiar with. Though progress is slow, she has now begun studying Korean too. She is so dedicated to her business that her and her husband work nearly year-round at this friendly little store so that "no customer will go away disappointed".
