Bubble tea lovers rejoice, because there’s a new kid in town and it goes by the name Tea Degrees!
Taking on the reins to become “Adelaide’s 1st gourmet bubble tea store”, Tea Degrees is a proud South Australian business that is hoping to bring a modern twist on the Taiwanese dessert by incorporating bold flavours such as Rocky Road, Salted Caramel, Nutella, After Dinner Mint, and even pre-workout Whey Protein bubble tea.
Co-owned by Anthony Till and John Luong, the store has been set up to provide customers with a new and improved way of enjoying bubble tea, which is often adorned with a gracious serve of toppings (tapioca balls, fruit jelly, aloe vera, and puddings, to name a few). After realizing a gap in the market for healthy bubble tea, Luong embarked on a quest to start up his own business with Till, which ended up with naming their store Tea Degrees (suggested by Luong’s wife Uyen Mai) to represent the different degrees needed to bring out the best flavours in the individual teas, as well as the versatility in their menu.
What’s even better is that you are also free to customize and make your own bubble tea – who knows, if it’s a huge hit, it might even find its place on the menu!
Looking for a little pick-me-up in the morning? Till and Luong also have in stock Elementary Coffee, Dutcha cocoa, and high quality milk that will give you a much needed caffeinated kick within the magic of bubble tea goodness! There are also plenty of vegan and protein-rich options available, to add to the element of being a healthier option of a drink.
Tea Degrees officially opens to the public August 3rd at 12pm and to celebrate, the first 100 people to walk through the doors will receive a fruit tea on the house! Additionally, there will also be 2-for-1 bubble tea specials on Friday and Saturday (till 9pm). So grab a mate, get your selfie on, and choose from one of the delectable flavours on their menu! And if you’re lucky, you might even be able to score a YEAR’S WORTH OF BUBBLE TEA!
Special thanks to Anthony Till, John Luong, and the staff at Tea Degrees for their generous hospitality and to Tempting Palates for the opportunity to attend the event.
