Le Tea 樂茶

Le Tea is a new Taiwanese dessert café that opened up in the Continental Plaza featuring bubble tea and other Asian-inspired desserts like matcha soft serve. I dropped by this place after dinner at Gyo-O to satisfy my sweet tooth with the boyfriend. Funny enough, we visited this location a few weeks ago hoping to try their matcha soft serve before heading to the Richmond Night Market, but the machine was broken that day 😦

Compared to other bubble tea joints, Le Tea has an extensive list of selected tea-based drinks. I believe have their own private selection of customized tea blends given their labelled tea tins placed above the countertop. Walking in, the place has a bit of a hipster vibe to it given the feature of an exposed brick wall, contemporary furniture, and use of monochromatic featured artwork.

My boyfriend wanted to play it safe and ordered their signature milk tea. He thought it was pretty standard for a bubble tea joint. The pearls were nice and chewy though!

As a huge matcha fan, this place did not live up to the hype. Cash only.
