YAYA TEA

Yaya is one of my favorite tea houses in Chinatown.  

 

 

Yaya was orginally on Hester street but recently moved right by the Manhattan bridge on Chrystie street.  Why I love Yaya is because they freshly brew all of their tea.  There is a flavor here for everyone.

Mindy is the young business owner behind this operation.  She gives Yaya a personal touch by creating drinks named after her customers.  Today, I had tea with my girlfriend Trang, so I tried what is known as the "Trangster" here.  It's basically a combination of mango, green tea, with tapioca stars. YUM!
