The Alley Lujiaoxiang
Head here for stunning marbled boba with handmade tapioca balls.
The Alley Lujiaoxiang sets itself apart with its 'deerioca' — tapioca balls made from scratch, with each batch kneaded and rolled in house. The brand also makes its own sugar cane syrup and hand-picks and roasts its tea leaves. The signature Brown Sugar Deerioca Series is available in limited quantities each day, and comes in cocoa, matcha, milk tea and fresh milk varieties. The finished product often has an appealing marbled look as the different ingredients are layered, and is a favourite among Instagrammers. And, with seven Sydney locations across the CBD, Burwood, Bankstown, Cabramatta, Canley Heights and Parramatta — plus one soon to open farther afield in Orange — it's easier than ever to get your hands on these bobas.
