It’s always tea time in Hong Kong – bubble tea time, that is. While the classic black milk tea version has remained a staple in everyone’s bubble tea arsenal, new shops from a recent wave of store openings have reinvented our favourite Taiwanese drink with an endless number of creative flavours, toppings and more.
