What is Tiger Sugar?

Born in Taichung, Taiwan, Tiger Sugar has become a fan-favorite boba tea chain in recent years, thanks in part to its Instagrammable drinks with black sugar “tiger stripes” dripping inside their cups. .

According to the chain’s website, baristas cook tapioca pearls in syrup for eight hours before serving. Rather than cream, stores use fresh milk in drinks.

Tiger Sugar’s success has allowed it to expand with black sugar bubble tea-inspired products such as popcorn and ice cream bars, which can be found in select grocery stores, like neighboring H Mart.
