This 2013 shop is well known for its bubble tea. In fact, each cup has a photo of a ninja splattered onto it. The shop offers a variety of flavors such as honey, strawberry, grapefruit, and cantaloupe. For those who prefer a milk-based tea, there is mango twist, honey dew, guava, and so many more. And if you get hungry, you can top it off with a sandwich!
