Xing Fu Tang is a Taiwanese bubble tea shop, and its name means ‘pure happiness in store’.

They are specialised in brown sugar milk tea with a twist. Based on the founder’s grandmother’s original recipe, Xing Fu Tang use a unique process in tapioca pearl making.

Instead of boiling tapioca in water and using processed syrup and refined sugar, they are stir-frying boba slowly with melted brown sugar. This gives the tapioca a thick brown sugar coat and provides a unique smoky flavour and a perfectly chewy texture.

This method of tapioca making is so unique that it is actually patented by Xing Fu Tang in 2018.

They do the whole process in an open kitchen in a huge golden wok, so everyone visiting the shop can see what’s going into their cup.
