    Legend has it that Chun Shui Tang was the first to invent our beloved bubble tea. It’s practically a sin not to drop by one of its 90 branches and get a sip of this creamy delight! Although they’ve definitely expanded their milk tea options since then, you must try the Original Pearl Milk Tea first. However, since it’s become quite the tourist attraction, get ready to wait at least 20 minutes for your drink.

If you’re a little skeptical about this “milk tea”, you’ll easily spot their Zhongzheng District stall thanks to the long, neverending lines.

    In the midst of all the bargain shopping and the lingering smell of stinky tofu, locals and tourists can find one of the best milk tea shops right in the middle of Ximending. Once you’ve devoured all of Taiwan’s famous street food, make sure to wash it down with a delicious cup of boba from Chacha Go. However, take note – this is the only Cha cha go branch in Taipei, so if you happen to fall in love with their drinks (and you most likely will), make sure to order extra to last you through the day!
