If you know me, you’ll know I love bubble tea. It’s probably not healthy (who am I kidding..) but you’ll find me sipping on one at least a couple times a week. And I’ve finally found my favourite bubble tea shop: OneZo Tapioca! They offer a great assortment of bubble tea drink flavours from milk teas to fruit teas, and the best part is their bouncy chewy tapioca! OneZo Tapioca recently opened up a new location in Richmond Hill at Commerce Gate. It’s a small shop with only a few tables so it can get crowded when the line gets long.
Their tapioca pearls are handmade fresh daily without preservatives or artificial flavours. You can choose unique tapioca flavours like cactus, sesame and purple yam! The selection varies everyday. I can’t say enough how much I love their tapioca, they’re subtly sweet, soft but chewy. Once you try these, it’ll be hard to go back!
I’ve tried 6 of their drinks so far and here’s my ranking. But I gotta say, they’re all delicious!
#6: Uji Matcha Latte – This has a strong matcha taste but it’s similar to matcha drinks at other places, even the Starbucks Matcha Latte, so I ranked it last.
#5: OneZo Green Latte – Mild, almost bland taste. It is like a refreshing milky tea. 50% sugar level gives just a hint of sweetness, the tapioca is sweeter than the drink.
#4: OneZo Grapefruit Green Tea – I love me some grapefruit! This is my favourite grapefruit drink out of all the other bbt places because it tastes real. They use real fresh grapefruit and not artificial syrup. There are lots of fruit pieces in the drink itself. I got 50% sugar level but it was still a bit too bitter for me.
#3: Jasmine Green Milk Tea – Very similar to the Green Latte but with a strong jasmine tea floral aroma, the taste is light, crisp and pleasant. It tastes literally like jasmine tea plus milk.
#2: Brown Sugar Dirty Black Latte – This drink is on the sweeter side because of the fixed sugar level but it’s a delicious burst of brown sugar every gulp. Goes down super smooth and flavourful. This drink comes with tapioca included and is only available in the smaller size.
#1: OneZo Fruit Tea – This is so refreshing and fruity tasting! Even though the sugar level is fixed it is not overly sweet at all, in fact, it might be a bit sour for some people. They use real fruit and not syrup so the flavours are amazing. In the drink are actual pineapple and apple slices, passion fruit bits and seeds, with two cherry tomatoes (LOL!).
