If you haven’t heard, Taiwan’s famous and best black sugar boba milk tea is now in Riyadh. Each cup is coated with brown sugar, and when milk is poured in, the drinks resemble the stripes of a tiger. The result? A glorious celebration of milky sweetness and flavourful teas. New to Tiger Sugar? We suggest trying black sugar milk with boba and cream mousse.

Tiger Sugar, Park Avenue, Qurtubah, Riyadh 13248, daily 4pm to 12.30am. @tigersugar.ksa
