Enjoying the World's Famous Bubble Tea at Chun Shui Tang / 闻名的春水堂珍珠奶茶
Taipei is such an amazing city to visit, with it's beautiful mountains, beaches and great food. This is one delightful island that has it all! I love it's modern yet laidback lifestyle. There are lots of great places and activities in and around Taipei so you never get bored. I'm absolutely loving this relatively short 3 day trip in Taipei!
One of my highlights was to visit Taipei’s Weeeeee! Slide! This is four-story height giant tubed spiral slide, which allows visitors to careen down from top to bottom in a staggering 15 seconds!
Located in the Xinyi district, this crafted slide is 16 meters in height and 42 meters in length. It is said that Taipei’s Weeeeee! Slide is the tallest outdoor spiral slide in Asia!
You don’t need to wear any specific outfit to have a go but only are required to sit in a cloth sack as you speed down. As this is almost like free falling, I felt the exhilarating thrill of reaching maximum speed in such a short time! Amazing ride and recommended for people who are into this kind of thing. Be prepare for an unforgettable 15 seconds of high adrenaline fun, lol.
Chun Shui Tang is a teahouse and claims to have invented the world famous "bubble tea" in Taiwan. Therefore, I knew I had to try it out during this Taiwan trip, lol.
I came across a branch also in the Xinyi District, located on the basement of a large shopping mall there. They cater for both indoor and outdoor seating although the waiting time was around 10 minutes.
I opted for the classic pearl milk tea and, "wow", it was the best milk tea I have ever tasted! It had the perfect milk-to-tea blend and was sweet without being too overwhelming. The boba was chewy and flavourful. Finally, the ice inside the tea is actually crushed, adding a nice smooth element to the drink.
I would highly recommend this place if you are ever in the area, or crazy about the bubble tea like me, haha!
There are loads of famous Taiwanese specialty, including their excellent quality oolong tea and Pineapple cake for you to bring home with you too. Enjoy!
