A drink isn’t just a drink at Teapioca Lounge—it’s a treasure hunt. Wide straws probe the bottoms of the café’s creamy teas and coffees in search of chewy tapioca balls and fruity gelatin sinkers. The hunt is made all the more exciting by the fact that Teapioca Lounge’s tapioca recipe calls for a specially prepared dark brown-sugar that adds a robust sweetness to each tiny ball. The tastiness of the tapioca balls shouldn’t detract from the drinks themselves, however. One sip or spirited chug is enough to prove that the Thai iced tea, chai cream tea, and Vietnamese coffee all stand on their own merits. In addition, their Taiwanese Snow Ice, called Milky Flurry, comes in 10 different flavors.
