Bubble Tea Revisited

  • m

Hi All!
I will be in DC this weekend and I am planning on hitting my fave Vietnamese hot spots. I have never been to any Eden Center restaurants(That's the one with the giant red/gold gate and Ames right?) and I would like to go to Seven Sisters and try Bubble tea also. I can't find the messages that talk about the best places to go, or at least the name of the places ot go for the tea, not to mention good flavors to try.

I apologize for bothering you again for the info! Any info would be great.

Thanks so much!

    I actually prefer the bubble tea ("zanzhou pearls") at Teaism. They use real tea, not powder, and thus it tastes like tea. The other guys are a bit too sweet for my taste.

    1. Too bad you're not going to Rockville - then I'd steer you to the Ten Ren Tea Co. on the upper Pike, whose tea is not too sweet either, or, across the Wintergreen Shopping Center, iCream, which also has bubble tea shakes. Also Fu Shing in Gaithersburg, and possibly the Fu Shing near Montgomery Mall.

      From what I recall, The Post listed the following places at Eden Center for their bubble tea: Catina & Hong Que/4 Sisters...
