Don’t know The Alley milk tea brand?
Check out our short feature of them.
The Alley is a Taiwanese milk tea company that specializes in what’s called “Deerioca,” the brand’s hand-made version of tapioca pearls. A lot of heart goes into making these perfect bites. They take pride in the fact these bubbles are made from scratch and have become globally-renowned for their unique texture and pleasing aroma.
Fun Fact: Their soft, chewy tapioca are fondly called deeriocas after the chain's deer imagery.
The Alley is gaining popularity around the world with franchises popping up all over the world. To date, The Alley has locations in Melbourne, Sydney, New Zealand, Toronto, Los Angeles, Paris, and all over Asia. And thanks to Eunice and Howell Cua of Aslan Quality 77 Trading Inc., they also have stores in Manila.
You must be wondering, “what makes it so darn popular?” The culprit behind their long queues is social media. As lame as it sounds, part of the reason people come to They Alley from far and wide is because the drinks are just so instagrammable!
Fun Fact: The founder, Mr. Mao Ting Chiu, is a creative designer by profession. He believes in serving drinks that bring joy not only with its taste, but also its aesthetic!
You might come for the ‘gram but you’ll get hooked on the taste. Their tea leaves are handpicked, aged, and roasted with other high-quality ingredients.
They also make their own sugar cane syrup in house, from a process that involves boiling all natural, high quality sugar canes. The sweetness is delicate but never overpowering.
Fun Fact: For their signature drink from the Brown Sugar Deerioca Series, the pearls are cooked in a premium brown sugar customized specifically for The Alley. Talk about first-rate!
