Green Tea Kingdom

I was driving on No.3 road on my way to grab Bubble Tea from Bubble World in Richmond because I thirsted for one. Even though my girlfriend had warned me not to have one this late (it was around 10pm) or rather get one without tea or caffeine in it. So, we were nearly there until we saw this big white logo that stood out in the dark night, and my girlfriend had recognized this place right away. She mentioned to me about this place a few weeks ago, and told me they have free delivery. BBT FREE Delivery? So, I made a U-turn and pulled up to this place. No one was inside, but as you can see, it’s not your typical Bubble Tea joint. This place is more for take out or rather DELIVERY!

As I went in, I was warmly greeted by the staff. And they presented their drinks very patiently to me in Mandrain, which I totally have no understanding of whatsoever. They had a list of 8 featured drinks, so to be safe, I ordered #1 on their list, which was Honey Cha Hua Green Tea + small pearls.

Honey Cha Hua Green Tea with Pearls

It was quite good, in my opinion. It’s got a very strong taste of tea. Strong enough that kept me up all night. I decided this would become one of my favourite bubble tea place as they have small pearls instead of the big ones, just like the ones at Fair Bee. Although, I have to say, this place ain’t cheap. This medium size cup was just over $5. I’ll explain below how this cup of tea is $5.

Green Tea Kingdom Menu

I’m sorry if it’s a little blurry, due to my bad scanning abilities. There’s 7 steps you take to order this perfect drink (although, they only listed 5 here).

  1. First, you pick either hot/cold/slush/ or green tea jelly.
  2. Second, you pick your tea from 4 choices: Stassen/Alishan/Oolong/ or Chahua.
  3. Third, you get to choose your flavour from a list of 13 different flavours.
  4. Fourth, you choose the size from x-small (375ml) to large (1L).
  5. Fifth, you pick what you want to add (this is entirely optional) from tapioca (big/small)/ agar/ or coco jelly.
  6. Sixth, you get to choose your sweetness from 1 to 7. 1 being the least sweet and 7 being the most.
  7. Lastly, you can choose how much ice you want. (Basically, the more the ice, the less the tea.)

Remember, how I mentioned FREE delivery earlier in the post. Well, it is FREE if your purchase is $60+ and I’m sure it’s given a distance perimeter. They also welcome you for free tasting before you buy, seems like they have learned from gelato. And if you have your own cup, bring it to save 25 cents! [SEE UPDATED COMMENTS BELOW by Hance Huang.]

So there we have it! Oh one more thing, don’t forget to ask for their take-out menu when you go in. (There’s a 10% off coupon attached.) Shhh! Get the GreenTea Kingdom Coupon here now!

Like Buddha Girl says, this is so Taiwanese, more so than any other BBT places in Vancouver/Richmond/etc now. I saw it while driving in Richmond and totally thought it as well. Thanks for going and for posting, now I know what to expect before I go! :)

Hey Robin, Thank you so much for this thorough review. We actually changed our delivery policy to free delivery for any order over 20 CAD for 1zone (richmond and part vancouver), 30 CAD for 2zone (vancouver and UBC), and 50 CAD for 3zone (DT and Burnaby). And we are not charging HST for delivery. =) And yeah, our Cha Hua tea is a bit more expensive than other guys but our original stassen is 4CAD per 1L bottle and Oolong green tea is 4.5CAD per 1L bottle. I am sure it is really competitive compared to other joints. If you have any concerns, let me know. Cheers,

I've noticed this place a few times when on the skytrain! When you said free delivery I was thinking YES I will order it for work since I work in the middle of nowhere (no. 8 road is middle of nowhere)... but darn. sounds good, and I'm thinking this type of green tea wouldn't be affected? I'll just skip on the pearls :)

Wow...I didn't even know no.8 road existed. I thought it only goes up to no.6! Good idea, save yourself 50cents!

WOW! This is very "Taiwan"...hahahah! Honestly, most BBT places in Taiwan are more like this place, for takeouts, some may have limited seating...but the style of BBT sit-in's (like the ones we have here) are not common...
