Bubble tea was invented in Taipei at Chun Shui Tang. The original location isn't around anymore, but the tradition continues at this location, just a short walk from MRT Taipei Arena station. Furthermore, it's not just about the pearl milk tea. It's an entire culinary experience, therefore, please order some food to go with your tea. How it works here... More

If you only want to try one Taiwanese milk tea only, this should be the place to go. Taste of tea is not very rich, but it's smooth and quite aromatic. There are quite a lot of snacks to order too, and my favourite is French Fries and siumei.

Nice and quality taiwan food provide with a low and mid range price in a comfortable restaurant. But it may take a long wait especially weekend for food preparation and seat. Must order the noodle and milk tea which are the recommendation dish.

Was quite disappointed that they didn't have Peanut Butter Toast available in the Taipei outlets, but fortunately, they have expanded so its easier to locate a branch. Love their bubble tea, worth every calorie and pearl! I typically order it without sugar. Do try the assorted Siew Mai & Turnip Cake! I love the pork siew mai better!

You have to try the Original pearl milk tea at Chun shui tang, it's very delicious. I didn't try the food there but I heard that it's quite good and I saw the price it's not that over.

This place was great, but unfortunately it closed its doors a couple of months ago. As a curiosity, latest Typhoon Hayan broke all their huge windows.

My wife and I took last minutes at the airport to have food at Chun Shui Tang in the food court. We love their vegetarian dishes. Very traditional and well prepared. We don't drink bubble tea normally, but we loved their bubble tea served in hot.
