Yi Fang Taiwan Fruit Tea

$$$$

The East Village has no shortage of bubble tea places (like Kung Fu, Bubbleology, Hawa, and Original Nicky’s). But this Taiwanese fruit tea chain lets you endlessly customize your drink, from the sugar percentage to the temperature (they even have an option for room temperature tea). Plus, they boil their own cane sugar.

In case you’re looking to shake up your Wednesday, get your iced tea topped with salted cream. If you’ve never tried it, let this salty-sweet dairy fever dream be yet another inspiration to take a snack break during the work week.
