In Taiwan, there are thousands of bubble tea stores. Some are a part of major franchises and have standards for flavor and technique. However, to experience something new and outside the usual boba-sphere, visiting the independent store called “Liao Mama廖媽媽” offers a unique taste of Keelung since the 1990s.
The mixture of fragrant black tea, milk, and super chewy jelly is unique among its competitors. The store is located in the heart of the terminal area. It is on XiaoSan Road in front of Ocean Plaza, where you get off the bus from Taipei. Head to Liao Mamas’ and have a try – fill your empty stomach with a sweet and tasty bubble.
