What I tried:
Milk Tea with Tapioca and Royal Milk Tea with Tapioca.
Located in the heart of Calgary's Chinatown amongst other bubble tea shops.
Another outstanding franchise from Taiwan to make its way to Canada with their unique bubble teas.
Parking could be an issue if you are driving as this shop is right by the main road. So, if you are plan for that slight inconvenience.
Their signature milk foam or milk tea series. There are so many options to try from and I am sure whatever you go with will not disappoint.
Their toppings include milk foam, pearls, white pearls, basil seeds, grass jelly or coconut jelly.
Polite but transactional. Nothing too special.
Both of our teas were delicious. They were both subtle and not too sweet.
The tapioca had a consistency that was unique and amazing compared to all the other bubble tea places I have been too. It has a great bite and chew to it. Also, the flavor of the tapioca itself was very subtle and flavorful
We opted for half sweet milk teas as sometimes I feel that bubble teas can be overpowered by the sugar and with that, the ones we got had a great taste to it.
I would recommend getting all their drinks at 50% sugar as it does very sweet otherwise.
Pricing for bubble teas are also reasonable and affordable.
This shop is small but very bright in colors and atmosphere. White and red décor fills the room. Red lanterns and live plants are also visible at this location.
There are many double and group tables to sit in to enjoy the bubble tea.
Great seating by the window to people watch and view the hustle and bustle of Chinatown.
Give Gong Cha a try! They are well known internationally and for good reason. I will definitely visit Gong Cha again every time I visit Calgary.
