九份 means nine portions.
Not 九分. Wrong place.

i see...because friend requested for this brand so asking about it first
If i am not going there, then the option is to find at Taipei underground mall.
Lastly see if they can mail to your hotel.

Then do your google search now lor.
1-2 packets not worth it.
Alternatively is once reach hotel, ask where to buy it.
That is the next best option.

Recently have some leave to clear and planning to bring my parent to visit Taiwan on July.

But understand Taipei will have typhoon season on July. Any idea how bad is the typhoon usually? will it last few days or just few hours

If really bad, it's the debris after the typhoon passed.
So everything is pretty unpredictable.
So to me, typhoon or not, you still may want to travel.

i think usually just strong gust of wind & rainfall
but the major ones like Typhoon Nesat in 2017, aftermath of typhoon were bad as many infrastructure were damaged.

like what calkel20 said, everything unpredictable. typhoon may head to taipei but eventually weaken or change it's course

i think hitting major one like Typhoon Nesat was like striking toto storm-chasers are known to camp themselves few days before the arrival along the path hopefully to "catch" the typhoon, many times still miss it.
