Bubble Tea to Try in Taiwan

Chun Shui Tang (春水堂)

Chun Shui Tang is a Chinese restaurant and the original inventors of the bubble milk tea. Their bubble milk tea can be said to be the best in the market. Be impressed by the quality of their pearls (tapioca balls) which are of the perfect size and has a very nice texture for chewing. Prices are a little steeper than other bubble tea chains, but it is absolutely worth the price!  Choose to order a take-away or sit down in the restaurant to enjoy their Chinese cuisine with your bubble tea.

TP Tea (茶湯會)

TP Tea is the bubble tea chain that Chun Shui Tang started.  They are quite popular in Taiwan, with many outlets in Taichung.  The best bubble tea to try at TP Tea is their signature Tie Guan Yin Milk Tea (鐵觀音鮮奶茶), and I will recommend the version without the milk as well.  TP Tea currently only has one outlet at Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 2.

Yifang (一芳台灣水果茶)

Want to drink more bubble tea without any guilt?  Then you got to try Yifang Fruit Tea.  They serve the most refreshing fruit teas that is guaranteed to quench your thirst.  What’s more, there are fruit chunks in the tea which ensures that it continues with the natural taste of fruits.  Yifang also add in seasonal items in their menu so there are always new things to try here.  There’s only one Yifang outlet at 313 Somerset in Singapore, so it’s best if you try the real deal there in Taiwan.

50 Lan (50 嵐)

50 Lan (50 嵐) is known as KOI in Singapore.  If you are a fan of KOI, then you will be delighted to know that the prices at 50 Lan is way cheaper than that in Singapore.  However, the menu differs but there are still enough variety to choose from.  What’s different here is also the existence of small pearls – ones that are small enough to swallow whole to make your bubble tea experience even more interesting.  50 Lan has so many outlets in Taiwan, it’s difficult to end your trip without seeing one.
