Details: Located at 135-03 Roosevelt Ave, Flushing, NY 11354. A claimed Yelp page is at https://www.yelp.com/biz/yanyan-tea-queens?osq=yan+yan+bubble+tea

Score: 6.3/10

YanYan Tea is yet another new bubble tea place that opened up in Flushing. At this point, there are so many bubble tea places in Flushing that you need to do something different to stand out. YanYan Tea tries to do that, but isn’t too successful.

YanYan Tea does two things different. First, their tapioca is cut into cubes rather than the orthodox pearl shaped tapioca. Unfortunately, this adds nothing to the taste and actually makes the tea taste worse. Secondly, they have Chinese skewers here. It’s always been a complaint of mine that bubble tea places mostly don’t serve food. The skewers here are greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately, there are more bad points to this place relative to other bubble tea places. The cups here are smaller even though the price is the average five or six dollars for a medium sized drink. The taste of the tea is noticeably not as good as the average taste of its competitors.

Overall, this place isn’t bad, it just isn’t at the level of your average bubble tea place in Flushing. Additionally, I came by during their opening week and got a voucher that gives a dollar off your next purchase. No idea if they’re still doing that.
