Next time you hear Mister Chen XXX or so and so's tea you know why:
Taipei, Oct. 30 (CNA) The number of people who have one of the most common last names in Taiwan now make up 52.79 percent, or 12.33 million, of the total population, with Chen (陳) being the largest surname group, according to statistics released Monday by the Ministry of the Interior (MOI).

The 10 most populous surnames in Taiwan, compiled as of June 30, were Chen, Lin (林), Huang (黃), Chang (張), Lee (李), Wang (王), Wu (吳), Liu (劉), Tsai (蔡) and Yang (楊), the MOI said.

I feel sorry for schoolteachers taking attendance!

I've seen at least four of these names attached to tea masters and at least three attached to potters.
