Humble Beginnings…

It all started in August of 1992, when Chung Huang, the eldest son of the Huang family, opened the doors to the very first bubble tea stand 茶典⼦ in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Over the years, the family cultivated relationships and friendships with their guests, making the bubble tea stand a hub for social gatherings. Those who experienced the unique combination of traditional tea with chewy tapioca, the quality of ingredients, and the friendly, honest service, quickly fell in love with the concept. In 1995, Davin Huang, the youngest son, returned to Taiwan and was inspired by the impact the bubble tea stand was having on the community. He saw the potential to bring this concept to America with a modern twist, and with the support of the rest of the family (Kimberly (麗凰), Chung (崇祥), Sherry (麗雪) and their dad (黃⽔吉) the journey began to introduce this pairing of tea and tapioca to the States.

Journey to Texas…

In 2000, The first Teahouse Tapioca & Tea was established inside the Hong Kong City Mall in Houston, TX, making waves as the first traditional Taiwanese Teahouse in the city’s history. Over the years, The Teahouse family worked tirelessly to meet the growing demand, perfecting their signature Green Tea and Cream Tea paired with chewy and sweet tapioca. This unique creation cemented The Teahouse’s presence in the beverage industry and soon became the latest sensation. As word spread, The Teahouse became the talk of the town, with guests raving about the combination of traditional Taiwanese cream tea with tapioca. The Teahouse’s commitment to guest satisfaction and quality ingredients has earned them much recognition and success over the past two decades.
