A world-famous boba tea — or bubble tea — drink chain is expected to open its first location in Cherry Hill in early January.
Tiger Sugar, a Taiwanese dessert chain known for its caramelized brown sugar syrup-striped drinks, will be located at 404 Marlton Pike East (Route 70), replacing the former Tea Do bubble tea shop.
The South Jersey bubble tea shop will open to the public on Saturday, January 8.
“Tiger Sugar is unlike any other bubble tea,” Eric Yeung, owner of the Cherry Hill location, said. “It took over ten years of painstaking research and development to come up with this unique drink made of black tea, brown sugar, milk, ice, and fresh cream mousse. Thanks to the unique ‘tiger stripes’ presentation, it has become an international sensation!” he added.
The chain uses a proprietary cooking method, taking up to 8 hours, to achieve its famous amber syrups and chewy boba with handmade tapioca pearls. The result is a bold and visually stunning drink.
The chain has rapidly expanded since it opened in Taichung, Taiwan, four years ago. It will be the 2nd location in New Jersey, and there are two locations in Philadelphia, with more to come.
The Tiger Sugar in Cherry Hill, located next to Han Dynasty in Saw Mill Village shopping center, will be open seven days per week.
Hours are Sunday through Thursday from 11:30 AM to 9:00 PM and Friday and Saturday from 11:30 AM to 10:00 PM.
