Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Pipe Tobacco

Does anyone know if there's any restrictions or added tax fees when it comes to ordering pipe tobacco from online sites that are outside of Taiwan?

Also, does anyone know of any places in Taiwan that sells Pipe Tobacco?

Thanks in advance!

I don't have any firsthand knowledge of such a store, but I found this on the board:

Smoker's Inn, No. 28 , Lane 199, Sec. 4, Xinyi Road in Taipei, has by far the best selection of pipe tobacco, cigars, and accessories in the city. Also used to carry smokeless products, but now only carrying snus from Sweden. Ms. Ines is very nice, speaks good English, and will go out of her way to get what you want.


The store's Facebook page:

The store's location (I hope) on Google Maps:

Hope this helps.

Been there and the store is pretty awesome.

The liquor shop around the corner I hear sells the cheapest JW Blue Label in the city.
