Yellow Dots Cafe-The best Ginger Tea in Richmond?

Should I use the phrase "City of the Dead" to describe today?

EU and I did drive to Pacific Centre; HOWEVER, it was closed on Easter sunday! So we decided to drive back to Richmond and planned to have a walk in Richmond Centre.
Ok, after we arrived Richmond Centre, we found out it's closed on Easter sunday as well! Sad enough, I suggested to make a visit to Parker Place because it's an Asian mall, so maybe it would open today.

Yes, I was right ;) It was about 3 o'clock and EU and I were a bit thirsty, so we decided to buy a drink in the foodcourt. To be honest, I am never a fan of Parker Place's food court because it is too crowded for me. Also, I don't like the atmosphere of the food court. Thus, it was a surprise to EU that I suggested going to Parker Place's food court for a drink. Eu wanted to drink some hot tea instead of the Taiwanese bubble teas, so the only choice for us is...Yellow Dots Cafe.

Overall: n/a

  • Focus on coffees
Ginger Longan Tea (Large)-6/6
  • $4
  • LOADED with ginger and longan
  • I love the spiciness of ginger, and they did a great job here. The tea is very spicy enough for my liking.
  • I told them not to add any sugar, and again they did a great job (I know many Taiwanese restaurants/bubble tea stores still add sugar even though you tell them not to).
  • Because the tea is pure hot water+ginger (without the sugar), I suggest to leave the ginger in for awhile before drinking.
  • There are many longans in the tea! Their longans are not as soft as the ones I had before; they are still chewy after staying in the tea for awhile.
Dates and Longan Tea-n/a
  • $4
  • Also it is LOADED with dates, longan and wolfberries.
  • This tea is also no sugar added. EU likes it a lot.
  • I didn't get to try this so I'm not sure about the taste of the ingredients and the tea.

EU said $4 for a large size hot tea was a bit expensive compare to other Taiwanese restaurants; however, we are really surprised with the hot teas from Yellow Dots Cafe, and we both agree that $4 is worth it :)

I will come back to give their coffee a try!
