In the vibrant hub of Downtown Toronto, there’s no shortage of bubble tea shops to choose from. As avid enthusiasts of this delightful beverage, we’d like to share with you three notable spots that we frequent for an exceptional bubble tea experience.
Chatime: The King @ Sherbourne Location
While many big chain establishments lose their individuality at the community level, Chatime on King @ Sherbourne stands out as a gem that keeps you coming back for more. To customize your perfect bubble tea, we recommend utilizing the Ritual app, where you can experiment with various flavours. Whether you’re in the mood for a creamy milk tea or a refreshing fruit-based concoction, Chatime has you covered.
Personally, we focus on their monthly tea specials, particularly the Earl Grey Milk Tea and the Classic Milk Tea with pearls.
Coco: The Queen and Spadina Gem
Coco bubble tea locations are scattered throughout the city, but our most delightful experiences have been at the Queen and Spadina branch. They offer efficient service, and their classic bubble tea flavors never disappoint. What makes Coco even better is their user-friendly rewards program, adding an extra touch of satisfaction to each visit. While Jill’s favorite is the Bubble Gaga, I usually opt for the tea of the month or a delightful fruit-based drink.
Fruiteao: A Local Favourite in the Village by The Grange
Nestled in the Village by The Grange, Fruiteao has become a beloved spot for locals, particularly OCAD students. While there might be other bubble tea joints with more extensive offerings, Fruiteao remains a go-to place when you’re in need of a quick, reasonably priced beverage. Supporting this local business has been our pleasure, and we’ve been loyal patrons for years.
Additional Noteworthy Mentions
For those seeking more bubble tea adventures, we recommend checking out Gong Cha on Queen/Spadina and BBtease at Bay/Dundas. These spots offer unique flavours and experiences that are worth exploring.
Wherever you choose to indulge in your next bubble tea craving, we hope you savor every sip and enjoy the delightful burst of flavors.
