Thai Iced Tea
Thai Iced Tea is an incredibly popular bubble tea flavor that has an incredibly unique flavor profile due to the use of Ceylon tea in its production.

Jasmine Green Tea
Jasmine green tea is a scented tea made by blending high-quality green tea leaves with jasmine flowers. The result is a lightly sweet, floral tea with pleasant aromas. Jasmine green tea has been produced in China since the Song dynasty and remains beloved today for its soothing and fragrant qualities.
Jasmine is a vine plant that produces delicate white flowers with an intense floral perfume. There are over 200 jasmine species, but Jasminum sambac is the variety most commonly used for tea scents. These small, white flowers bloom in clusters and emit a sweet, uplifting fragrance with hints of honey.
In China, fresh jasmine flowers are harvested in the early summer. They are picked early in the day when aroma is most intense. Layering green tea leaves and jasmine flowers together causes the tea to absorb the ethereal jasmine essence as it dries.
Green Tea Base
The base for jasmine tea is almost always Chinese green tea, traditionally from the Fujian or Zhejiang provinces. The most common base tea used is silver needle white tea or high-grade Longjing green tea. Green tea’s neutral, vegetal flavor allows the jasmine’s aroma to shine through.
The premium whole leaf green tea is picked and processed in spring, then stored until summer for scenting. This ensures vivid, fresh flavor. Only the freshest green tea makes the best absorption bed for jasmine’s romantic fragrance.
Lavender Milk Tea
Lavender milk tea is a floral-infused creamy tea made by brewing lavender buds and tea leaves in steamed milk. The result is a soothing, aromatic tea latte that calms the senses. Both lavender’s gentle fragrance and the comforting warmth of milk contribute to the tea’s relaxing qualities.
Lavender is a Mediterranean flower treasured for its sweet, fresh, herbaceous fragrance. There are over 40 cultivars, with English lavender and French lavender most popular for culinary uses. The purple-hued flowers bloom in mid-summer on upright lavender shrubs.
Only the tiny flower buds are used to infuse into the tea, not the stems or leaves. Fresh buds are optimal but high-quality dried buds also impart abundant aroma. Lavender’s main essential oils like linalool provide its pleasant scent and mild sedative qualities. Just a small amount of buds can infuse a whole pot of tea.
Lavender milk tea is usually made with a base of black tea like Assam, Ceylon, or Keemun. The richness of black tea stands up well to lavender’s flavor and the creaminess of milk. Chamomile, rooibos, or Earl Grey are other excellent bases for lavender milk tea. Green or white teas can also be used for lighter versions.
Whatever the tea base, high quality loose leaf tea is brewed strong to complement the lavender essence. The tea should be freshly brewed to extract optimal flavor before mixing with lavender and milk.
Lavender milk tea uses steamed milk rather than milk substitutes. Whole milk or 2% milk is usually preferred, as lower fat content results in a thinner mouthfeel. Milk is typically steamed rather than simply warmed or frothed to incorporate airiness and a frothy texture.
Steaming also allows the milk to take on subtle floral notes from the lavender buds. This creates a superior integration of flavors compared to just adding milk at the end. A splash of cream on top adds further richness and visual appeal.
Honeydew Green Tea
Honeydew Green Tea is an invigorating, yet soothing, tea option that has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. This refreshing tea is made with green tea leaves that are blended with bits of honeydew melon to create a unique and flavorful cup. The combination of the earthy taste of green tea and the sweet and juicy notes of honeydew make for a delightful experience.
The chlorophyll-rich leaves used in Honeydew Green Tea are sourced from high-elevation plantations in China’s Fujian Province, where the air is crisp and clean. The tea master then carefully blends these young tender leaves with fresh juicy honeydew melon pieces to create a balanced flavor profile. Thanks to this mellow sweetness, it pairs well with other ingredients like ginger root or black sugar pearls to make an even more flavorful bubble tea drink.
On top of its pleasant flavor, there are numerous health benefits associated with Honeydew Green Tea too. It contains catechins, which are powerful antioxidants that help promote healthy cell growth by fighting off free radicals in the body. And due to its high levels of vitamin C, it can also help boost immunity and improve digestion as well.
For those looking for convenience, Honeydew Green Tea can be easily purchased in stores or online. It comes loose leaf or pre-packaged in individual servings so you can conveniently enjoy your cup wherever you go!
Passion Fruit Green Tea
Passion Fruit Green Tea is an exquisite, delicate beverage that can bring a unique flavor and aroma to one’s cup. A fine green tea base is combined with the sweetly tart flavor of passion fruit to create a vibrant and delicious taste. At Yucoo, we take immense pride in our Passion Fruit Green Tea. We start off with select leaves of fine sencha green tea as the base, brewing each batch with care to ensure that a mild and natural flavor is extracted.
To this freshly brewed sencha we add carefully selected pieces of passion fruits.

Matcha Green Tea
Matcha Green Tea is one of the most popular bubble tea flavors. It’s made from finely ground green tea leaves, which provide a light and refreshing flavor that many bubble tea lovers love. Matcha Green Tea has plenty of health benefits, including high levels of antioxidants, increased energy levels, improved mental clarity and focus, and more.
At Yucoo, we use premium grade matcha powder for our Matcha Green Tea drinks that is grown in Kyoto prefecture in Japan. Our Matcha Green Tea is brewed with ideal temperature to bring out its delicate flavor profile and balanced sweetness. The ingredients are blended together until a smooth consistency is reached before being poured into our signature bubble tea cups.
The unique taste of matcha green tea can be attributed to the traditional way in which it’s processed. The leaves are shade-grown for several weeks before being handpicked and steamed, then dried and stone-ground into a fine powder. This process helps preserve some of the plant’s intricate aroma compounds, resulting in an intense flavor with unparalleled depth and complexity.
What really sets our Matcha Green Tea apart is its vivid color – thanks to the chlorophyll content in the leaves – which adds an eyecatching aspect to this classic drink. All these factors combine to make Yucoo’s Matcha Green Tea one of the best available on the market today!
