The Alley LuJiaoXiang
These bubble teas are best enjoyed topped with some 'snow velvet' cheese foam.
A Taiwan-born tea store with over 50 global outposts under its belt, The Alley LuJiaoXiang has made a name for both its slurpable drinks and those all-important 'beverage aesthetics'. Not only do these sips have serious swagger, but ingredients like the sugar cane syrup and signature tapioca pearls are made in-store from scratch.
Sample those house-made orbs in the likes of a milk-infused black tea blend or tea latte, or go for one of the popular fruit tea concoctions, best enjoyed topped with some 'snow velvet' cheese foam. And if you fancy a bit of a mouth party, opt for something featuring The Alley's special brown sugar pearls. These rich little gems are served warm, making for an extra treat when mixed through cold milk.
You can also find The Alley in QV Melbourne, Highpoint Shopping Centre, and on Bourke and Elizabeth streets in the CBD.
