Gong Cha is my favourite bubble tea place in Hong Kong, so I was very excited when I found out that they were opening in Vancouver! It’s been open for quite a while, but I just never got around to writing a post about it!
I’ve dragged pretty much everyone that I know here, and I will continue to do so because I love their Wintermelon Milk Foam Tea!
What I drank: Wintermelon Milk Foam Tea ($5.50)
This is my go to drink almost every time I come to Gong Cha. It can be hot or cold, so it’s perfect for Vancouver’s bipolar weather. This drink is on the sweeter side, but I just love it so much that I make an exception to my no sugar in drinks rule. The foam cap is a bit salty, so it is an acquired taste, but I personally love it.
Wintermelon is a hard flavour to describe, it tastes a bit like sugar cane but with a deeper caramel/brown sugar taste.
Would I come back? Yes! In fact, at the writing of this post I’ve already been back several times!
