Cheevit Cheeva Review
I went in to Cheevit Cheeva because the place looked very bright and inviting. The menu is only available in Chinese and you are required to order 1 item per person.
Inside Cheevit Cheeva, it’s very cold. An excellent place to be on a hot Taipei day. The facility is very clean and organized. The seats are all wooden stools with no seat padding so don’t expect to stay very long.
I got the Thai tea shaved ice and sparkling lemon drink. The prices were pretty high and the portions were very small.
The Thai tea shaved ice had a really strong tea flavor and wasn’t sweet until you add the condensed milk. It’s topped with whip cream and black beans. Additional sides were shaved almonds, boba and the sweet condensed milk.
After digging in to the shaved ice for awhile, you’ll find yourself some coffee pudding in the center.
Overall, the Thai tea shaved ice was just okay and I wouldn’t get it again. The tea flavor was overpowering, but the presentation of everything was really nice though and the service was very good.
The sparkling lemon drink was super sour. It was like a punch to the face. I had to add water to it to make it drinkable.

Money In Taiwan
Tax Is Included In The Price
All displayed prices in Taiwan are the actual price. Tax is already included and for large purchases, tourists visiting Taiwan can get a 5% Taiwan tax refund at the airport Tax Refund counter. Some shops offer this service too, but they will require your passport.
Taiwan Is Cash Only (For Most Small Shops)
The primary payment method for all transactions in Taiwan is cash. It’s very rare for small shops to take anything other than cash. It’s more common to see places accept the Taipei Metro Card as payment rather a credit card.
Supermarkets and convenience stores in Taiwan (7-Eleven, Family Mart) do not accept credit cards (at least not American credit cards). You can only make purchases by cash or by using your pre-loaded funds on your EasyCard.
