If you're from Vancouver, then you already know that we take bubble tea seriously here. There's no room in the city for lame boba. You can sip on some of the best bubble tea in Vancouver at The Alley and they're opening a new location in Richmond in February. To celebrate, they're handing out free bubble tea and you have to get some.
The Taiwanese bubble tea brand already has a location in downtown Vancouver, but the new one in Richmond will be their second in the province.
While there aren't official photos of the new space yet, we can bet that it will be adorable because they take design really seriously and all of their shops are ultra-cute.
Between Thursday, February 13 and Friday, February 14 all drinks will be 10% off at their new Richmond spot.
Then, on the official grand opening that weekend, you can get free bubble tea.
At 3 p.m. on Saturday, February 15 and Sunday, February 16, they will hand out 100 free bubble teas, first-come-first-served. Plus, bubble tea fans will also get an exclusive free Antler Pin.
Any specialty drinks that Saturday and Sunday will be 15% off, too.
If you haven't tried their drinks before, free is the perfect price to pay to try something new.
The Alley has locations across Canada including Alberta, B.C, Ontario and Quebec.
The Alley told Narcity that they're going to be launching tea-flavoured popcorn at all locations across Canada later this month. You can get Black Tea or Golden Oolong flavoured popcorn for $5.
Every time they open a new location, they like to celebrate with freebies. There's so much hype around each opening, it's almost like Jolliebee's opening parties.
If you love tapioca pearls, AKA the bubbles in the bubble tea, then this place is a must-see for you.
Their "deerioca" pearls are handmade and slow-cooked with brown sugar fresh each day.
While you're in Richmond, remember that it's basically a foodie paradise. You can drop by matcha heaven at Tsujiri or eat your way along the dumpling trail when you get peckish.
