This place behind GongGuan MRT Exit 1 is well believed to be the first Bubble Milk Tea 珍珠奶茶 zhēn zhū nǎi chá. When I first arrived in Taiwan, I would occasionally indulge until I found this place. Now, I will only drink this place and save it for special occasions.
There’s always a long line.
Each cup is $35, and I would strongly suggest getting the house special!

Even though it isn’t the usual way bubble milk tea is written, this is the bubble milk tea you’ll be wanting.
I recommend getting no ice 去冰 qù bīng.
The tapioca balls are hot and when mixed in with the milk they form like a caramel and toffee like flavour throughout the drink. Flavour wise, it is fantastic. The tapioca balls themselves are slightly softer than chain stores such as 50 of Coco, which I much prefer. This is a perfect afternoon snack after a light lunch.
If you’re in Taipei for a limited time, make some time for this, you won’t regret it.
