Teaus: Cozy Tea Cafe in Sunset Park, Brooklyn

While bubble tea shops are quite ubiquitous in New York City, particularly in this part of Brooklyn, I was mega excited to hear that Teaus was coming to my neighborhood. Because, you see, Teaus is different from your run-of-the-mill bubble tea shops that rely on powder and days old brews of strong tea to create their taro, almond, melon, and numerous other rather creative flavors that are definitely hard to achieve from scratch. But that’s exactly what Teaus does—creates all of its tea flavors from scratch, using all-natural ingredients. The flavors tend to fall on the fruity side, but hey, it’s all natural, freshly brewed, and on top of that, presented to you in these adorable glass bottles that you’ll be taking home to enjoy indefinitely. I swear these bottles, along with the never-ending heat wave that we’ve had in the last few weeks, inspired me to experiment and create my own cold brew from the ingredients I had at home: white & green tea, peaches, lavender, honey. The result was heavenly. But if you’re not like me and don’t have the time to brew, assemble, and refrigerate your own concoction of tea, then head over to your local tea cafe, or better yet, to Teaus in Sunset Park (the only location that’s now open in all of New York City), for a bottle (it sounds weird, but it’s totally cool, you’ll see) of refreshing, fruity tea.

The shop itself is tiny but oh so cute with its glass decorations outside and wall art inside.

It was so hard to choose which tea to indulge in—all of the options sounded amazing. I almost went with the boring option of Jasmine Green Tea because that’s what I get literally every time I’m in bubble tea shop (love jasmine tea too much + lactose intolerant and can’t get any of the options with milk), but then I saw Watermelon Green Tea and I’ve been dreaming of that combination for a very long time and couldn’t find it at other bubble tea places, or at least not in a way that wouldn’t involve milk, so I knew I had to get that.

Girlfriend went with with the Tropical Green Tea option, and it’s the orangey bottle in the photos. Both flavors, the tropical and the watermelon, were incredibly refreshing. Not too sweet too which I like. But I might have loved the tropical one more (and drank most of it to the dismay of the girlfriend). It was light and delicious, with a hint of citrus and some spices that I couldn’t quite place (perhaps cardamon?)

Awkward hand of mine…But at lest the nail polish still looks good?

    Adding this to my list if I’m ever in Sunset Park! I feel like bubble tea places keep popping up left and right (and many of them are just meh) so it’s cool to see places like this. In Astoria a place just opened up called Teapsy (heh heh) and they make their own latte flavors and layered flavors. Now that I’m thinking about, I’m suddenly craving it, wah.

    I like the sound of tropical and watermelon green tea, and those bottles are so so cute! This just gives me even more reason to want to visit New York, one day hopefully not too soon away! Also your photos are always so great Julia! x
