What often makes a great cup of bubble tea are the fresh and quality ingredients like fruits, the tapioca, the jelly, or the teas themselves. Each of these Edmonton bubble tea shops certainly serve fresh ingredients, but many of them also add their own unique twists to the often milky or iced drink, usually poured over tapioca balls (the bubbles).
In Edmonton, the best bubble tea means variety, fun flavours, tradition, innovation, and of course the quality!
The bubble tea at this south Edmonton shop draws its inspirations from all over! In your flavourful teas, you will get hints of tastes from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Canada. With a focus on fresh ingredients, TeaCup2Go offer creations like the Coconut Lover, Dinosaur Tea, Matcha Tea, or the Jelly Juice Cup.
