The bubble tea craze has hit Malaysians and it has hit us hard. Within the first half of this year, we’ve seen countless of bubble tea shops open throughout Malaysia. The hype is here and it’s real! Tiger Sugar, Xing Fu Tang, Daboba…. the list just goes on and on. And let’s admit, we’ve all lined up (or at least attempted) to get our hands on at least a cup of these delectable drinks. However, we know that queuing is not for everybody (especially in our Malaysian weather) or some of us just simply don’t feel it’s worth the hype.

If you love some good old bubble tea but don’t want the wait, we’ve got just what you need! Here’s a list we’ve put together of some hidden gems that you could check out to get that craving fixed!
