Mastercraftsman Liu Ngiug-in specializes in weaving bamboo tea carriers, which she invented more than 50 years ago. She said that initially, she just wanted to weave an insulated container so that she could serve hot tea to her family members working in the mountains, adding that the inspiration for the carriers was from bird nests. At her workshop in Wenshui, Miaoli County, a fine collection of tea carriers is conspicuously displayed in her cupboard, which signifies Liu’s love and care for her family. Commenting on the craft’s future, Liu said that she had passed it on to her talented grandson, who would hopefully keep it alive for the years to come.
