This milk tea place is making waves among milk tea lovers who steer clear of big names. Their Golden Sun milk tea is known to be one of their most famous flavors, with some even saying that it’s the best milk tea they’ve tasted!


1. Brown Sugar Pearl Tea Latte by Yi Fang

Claimed as Taiwan’s best milk tea, Yi Fang is now in the country to offer one of their best flavors–the Brown Sugar Pearl Tea Latte. Don’t be taken aback by the “sugar” in its name because it is more than just a sweet drink. It’s got a rich toasty taste that goes absolutely well with the brown sugar pearls!
