Ever wondered where Bubble Tea was invented? Well, wonder no more! Apparently, bubble tea originated in Taichung, in a 2 story tea-house named Chun Shui Tang.
We ordered their more popular food such as their butter bread, the beef noodles and of course, their famous milk tea.
When the food arrived, we understood why Chun Shui Tang was packed to the rafters - Not only was the presentation of their food impeccable, the taste was top-notch as well.
The top of the butter bread was toasted to a perfect crisp, and coated with a beautiful layer of sweet butter. As we bit into the bread, we finally understood what the perfect toast was. Soft, sweet and buttery, the toast was truly a treat to our tastebuds and made for one of the best breakfast meal we ever had.
Their beef noodle was another classic. The noodles were tasty and of the perfect texture, making it a delight to consume. The broth was filled with flavor and yet wasn’t overwhelming, and we found ourselves slurping up the addictive concoction. The beef was soft and tender (by beef noodle soup standards) and actually provided for a pretty decent bite! All in all, we found ourselves truly enjoying the beef noodles and we would definitely recommend it to all our friends!
Last but not least though was their legendary milk tea. Surprisingly, we found their milk tea the most ordinary out of the three. With a generous head of milk foam at the top, the tea did taste good and provided for a pretty decadent drink. However, Taiwan’s other milk tea stores have done such an amazing job of copying the original that most of the milk teas we drank tasted exactly like Chun Shui Tang’s! So while we would recommend you trying the drink for it’s heritage value, don’t expect something that will absolutely blow your mind. It is just milk tea after all!
Chun Shui Tang was absolutely amazing and is a eatery that everyone visiting Taiwan should head to if given the chance!
p.s. After this meal in Taichung, we rlly felt we were tai zhong to move 🌚
