Have you heard of Bubble Tea? Also known as Boba Tea or Pearl Tea, this iced tea with milk and tapioca balls appeared in the 1980s in Taiwan. The different types of teas and fruits make this drink a refreshing alternative for hot days in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan.
The fact is: whatever the tea, it has several health benefits. We’ve talked about these benefits and the reasons for drinking more tea before, and Bubble Tea is no exception. Sweet and a bit of fun, Boba is a good way to start venturing into the world of different teas 😉 And if you’re looking for a place to taste this delight in Taipei, we’ve made a list of 10 amazing places in the city!
CHUN SHUI TANG
Chun Shui Tang is the oldest and most traditional establishment that sells Bubble Teas in Asia. In Taipei alone there are more than 10 units recognized for the high quality of the tea, the fragrance and the slightly bitter taste of the drinks.
If you are looking for an authentic flavor, Tiger Sugar has a unique version that mixes black tea with milk, brown sugar and traditional tapioca balls. Classic is only classic because it’s good, isn’t it?
One of the best known places to taste the drink is Share Tea, which has several units inside and outside Asia. Prices vary between 85 and 100 Taiwanese dollars, the equivalent between 10 and 15 reais.
Are you looking for a place that goes beyond drinking? 50 Lan is a great option! In addition to having special and themed Boba Teas for different times of the year, the place also sells fried chicken!
If you are looking for Bubbles Teas totally different from the traditional version of tea with milk, Ten Ren even has frozen options! The Frozen version of this fruit drink is even more refreshing and very reminiscent of the consistency of an ice cream. Perfect for the city’s intense summer 😉
FRUIT TEA YI FANG
Still in different options, Yi Fang Fruit Tea has the presence of fruits much more striking than the flavor of tea. Despite the tapioca balls give the charm, the fruit flavor predominates and can be a good alternative for those who enjoy more juice on hot days.
With a minimalist design and architecture, SOMA was Taipei’s first drinks boutique. One of the most requested drinks is the one that mixes 3 types of black teas recognized for their great qualities.
At Jenjudan, the classic drink with tea, brown sugar and milk is once again highlighted. Known for offering the sweetest bubble teas in Taiwan, this is the ideal place for those thinking about the drink + dessert combo.
CHEN SAN DING
I always say here that a place with long lines is for us to keep an eye on. When the establishment is in a market with many options and competitors … Then it is certain that the food (or in this case drink) is good! Chen San Ding is in the night market in Gongguan and, despite the scary queues on weekends, the service is super efficient and fast! What can you not fail to prove? The brown sugar fool!
Also very busy, Kenting Dan Dan is a good choice for those looking for a refreshing and yet different drink. There you will find options for toppings with herbal jelly and even beans! Would you dare to prove it?
