Jan 3 2019, 2:00 am

An international Taiwanese bubble tea chain is officially opening its first Vancouver location.

The Alley, known for its freshly handcrafted tapioca ‚Äď aka¬†deerioca, a word which plays into the¬†chain’s¬†deer¬†logo ‚Äď has outposts around the world, including Australia, France, the US, and many locations scattered across Asia too.

The bubble tea giant also operates 10 locations in Ontario, but this will be the brand’s first foray into the booming west coast bubble tea scene.

In addition to making its own soft, chewy deerioca from scratch, The Alley also creates its own sugar cane syrup and serves up an elevated menu of original brewed teas, milk teas, and fruit/juice teas.

The brand has also been known to offer specialty drinks like the Deerioca Puff, their signature deerioca drink mixed with sweet custard pudding, and the picture-perfect Northern Lights drink to name a few.
