Bubble Tea Shop, With Focus on Natural Sweeteners, Opens on 30th Ave.


July 22, 2016 By Michael Florio

A new bubble tea shop that focuses on all-natural sweeteners opened on 30th Avenue Saturday.

The shop, called The Teapsy, is located at 33-17 30th Ave. and offers its customers all-natural teas, Bryan Huang, the owner said.

“A lot of people have come in and are excited about our products,” Huang said. “They are giving us good feedback which is very encouraging.”

Popular items, he said, include “The England”, which consists of Earl Gray milk tea with a caramel aftertaste; the “Calamansi”, which has a limeade taste; and passion fruit green tea.

The store also offers what’s known as “Shades of Grey,” cocktail-inspired layered teas. One such tea is comprised of lemonade, a mojito-flavored mixture and orange juice.

Huang has incorporated these cocktail-inspired teas to the menu to add to the bar feel that he hopes to emulate in the shop. The shop features stools, with seating for nine people. However, additional customers can stand, similar to at a bar.

The name of the store builds on the cocktail theme.

The Teapsy is a play on the words tea and tipsy, Huang said.

The shop will brew fresh tea throughout the day and use real sugar and milk. The teas have been imported from a range of countries such as Thailand, China, England and the Philippines.

The Teapsy is open from 11 am to 9 pm, seven days a week.

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
