The age of bubble tea is now. This Taiwan-born drink has taken the world by storm over the past decade, and Tokyo has been on the forefront of the trend by welcoming a huge variety of tapioca-drink dealers to its streets. The latest purveyor to try its luck in the capital is Coco, a chain that already operates over 2,000 shops elsewhere in the world, from Canada to China. Opened right by Harajuku Station in late July 2017, it serves all the usual mixtures in addition to a Harajuku-only fresh grapefruit green tea and a few more offbeat concoctions – how about some 'lactic acid mango' or the 'lemon king', made from a whole lemon? Coco also stands out by preparing its tapioca fresh every morning, making sure that your pearls are always appropriately fluffy.
