Our Story

柏林,一個擁抱多元文化的國際城市。然而,穿梭在現代與歷史交織而成的柏林街道中,我們卻找不到在國際美食界裡佔有一地之味的台灣美食,從而點燃我們將台灣食文化帶入柏林的動機。有別於咖啡文化,茶文化帶給大家一個既熟悉卻又陌生的印象。觀望歐洲的飲茶文化及市場,日式茶道如雨後春筍般出現在柏林的各個角落,然而,台灣茶所代表的文化以及其背後蘊含的故事卻鮮為人知。茶,除了一般普遍理解的泡茶文化,就數台灣的手搖杯茶文化最具代表性特色了。透過手搖杯茶文化,台灣向世界證明,溫潤的台灣茶具有相當豐富的多樣性。「奶蓋茶」不只是台灣飲茶文化產生出的新產品,同時也是一個東西文化碰觸而產生的新概念:將混合攪拌過後的牛奶以及鮮奶油輕輕鋪蓋在茶上。我們創店的目的不僅是為了讓在柏林的台灣同學,能夠藉由這一杯杯的茶飲解鄉愁。更重要的是,向柏林人介紹來自台灣的茶種和台灣特有的飲茶風格。同時,我們也希望藉由定期舉辦Workshop,讓柏林人,從飲茶這一個簡單的日常享受開始,慢慢地了解這個屬於東方小島的軟實力,促進雙方文化交流。我們的品牌多夏,闡述了我們台灣請、謝謝、對不起的文化,「多夏」諧音台語「多謝」,感謝每位客人的到來。此外,中文「多夏」二字同時也傳達了來自島嶼人期待能在柏林能經常感受到夏天的溫度

 

Taiwanese cuisine is still a relative new field for an international and cosmopolitan city like Berlin, which gives us the motivation to bring in the Taiwanese food culture. Different from the coffee culture, the tea culture gives a known but unfamiliar impression. Taiwanese tea culture, in particular, has yet to gain a foothold in Berlin, while the Japanese tea ceremony, for example, is already familiar to many. Tea has a longstanding history in Taiwan. The Taiwanese have developed their own tea ceremony and new style of of tea. "Cream Cheese Tea" is an example of new style of tea, served with whipping cream on the top of tea. It's not only a new product derived from Taiwanese tea culture but also a new concept arising from combing the Taiwanese and Western cultures. The purpose of our tea shop is not only to allow Taiwanese students in Berlin to ease their homesickness with a cup of tea, but also introduce the tea and tea ceremony from Taiwan to the Berliners. Meanwhile, through our workshops, we hope the Berliners will get to know our island in eastern Asia, which is also called "Formosa", and enhance the cultural exchange. The name of our shop "Dosha" implies the essence of Taiwanese culture, politeness, which contains 3 basic elements, please, thank you, and sorry. Moreover, "Dosha" sounds similar to “thank you” in Taiwanese. We thank you for your every visit. In addition, the Chinese characters 多 and 夏 (多: more; 夏: summer) also indicate the Taiwanese, who come from a tropical island, wish to feel the summer more often in Berlin.
