The menu is extensive and features a wide variety of loose leaf teas, Taiwanese-style milk teas, smoothies and more. Look for varieties like house genmaicha (roasted brown rice) milk tea, citrus fruit jasmine and matcha green tea smoothie.

If you're going the dessert route, expect to see offerings such as a strawberry shortcake parfait, a New York-style cheesecake and durian crepes. (You can check out the full menu here.)

And Linan C. said, "I have been waiting for this to open in Bensonhurst! The atmosphere is beautiful! They have an outdoor seating at the back and the decorations are just on point for a cute and romantic date."
