Many people come to Taipei to experience the culture, others come to enjoy the food that people rave about on social media, but there is one thing everyone consistently seeks out — bubble tea.
The popular drink has taken the world by storm, and Taiwan has the best to offer. Chain stores such as Coco, 50 Lan or Ten Ren Tea, are all some of Taiwan’s more well-known brands, but this guide will not only bring some other chains, it will also introduce some of the local stores that deserve more attention for their delicious drinks.
春水堂 Chun Shui Tang
When thinking of bubble tea, there is always one problem, who was the first to create this delicious drink. One store comes up quite often in this debate, Chun Shui Tang.
Often referenced as the inventor of this drink, Chun Shui Tang reportedly created a mixture of milk and tea, combined with delicious tapioca, to begin their famed drinks. This store is a must-visit for all you milk tea lovers.
Not only do they have delicious drinks, but Chun Shui Tang also allows you to customize your order, for example, you don’t want the drink to be super cold, they allow you to modify the amount of ice, more or less than the usual amount.
Of course, they also allow you to change the amount of sugar as well.
