TEAEVER – New Bubble Tea Joint Near Harbour Centre

TEAEVER is a new bubble tea shop that has opened up in the former Odyssey Bar and Nightclub. The space has been renovated and they occupy the front part of the building. There is seating for a few people along a counter window, but this is mostly a grab and go type of place. As…

Sharetea

I remember when I was a child there were only a few bubble tea stores around, but these days there seems to be as many bubble tea stores in Vancouver as there are Starbucks and poke shops. Sharetea was established in 1992 in Taiwan, and has since expanded to over 450 stores across the globe….

Chun Yang Tea (春陽茶事)

Chun Yang Tea is a popular chain from Taiwan. With locations in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Malaysia, they are eyeing a North American expansion by opening stores in Vancouver and Toronto. They are known for their authentic and traditional milk tea, and all of their drinks are made without any powders or artificial…

The Alley 鹿角巷: Downtown Vancouver

The Alley is a Taiwanese bubble tea chain known for its for freshly handcrafted tapioca – aka deerioca (a play on the word tapioca and their deer logo). They are opening their first Vancouver location this Saturday (April 27). The Alley creates its own sugar cane syrup and serves up an elevated menu of original…

Mr Mustache Bubble Tea

Mr. Mustache Bubble Tea has two locations – one in Vancouver and one in Burnaby. On this occasion I visited the Burnaby location which took over the former Cafe Joie. It’s only a few minutes walk from Metrotown, so it’s a nice cafe to rest up after a day of shopping. On my visit, most…

On Yogurt

If you know me, you will know that I am obsessed with sweet potatoes. So when On Yogurt launched their new line of Purple Sweet Potato themed desserts I knew I had to check it out. On Yogurt is a cute little dessert shop on the edge of Yaletown near BC Place. They are known for…

My Frosty

One of my favourite desserts in the world is Shaved Ice (patbingsu) and I’m so glad that it has become trendy and popular in Vancouver. Although Passion8 is still my first choice, My Frosty is slowly but surely climbing it’s way to number one in my heart. What I love about My Frosty is that…

ZenQ Burnaby

Growing up in North Burnaby I have always felt that there was a serious lack of good bubble tea joints. Enter – ZenQ. Perhaps a decade too late for me (it’s a pretty good study spot!), it’s a great dessert hot spot. They’re relatively new in Burnaby so it’s not super busy, but I’m definitely…

Sugar Lab

Sugar Lab is a newly opened Mille Crepe Cake place in Burnaby. It’s a bit out of the way if you don’t drive, but it’s worth the trek out! Tiramisu Mille Crepe Cake ($8.50) This was my favourite dessert of the evening. I liked that the cake wasn’t too sweet and the multiple layers were…

Dessert Dynasty

Dessert Dynasty is my favourite childhood bubble tea shop. I used to always come here to get their Mango Slush with pearls. This is the only place I order bubble tea with pearls (I know!). Their pearls are always perfectly cooked with a slight sweetness. I was really craving it one weekend so I made…
