Canary Wharf has a growing selection of food and drink, with many pop-up stalls and indoor and outdoor food markets!

As a truly international area a great thing about Canary Wharf is the variety of food and drink on offer — from Sushi to Steak and everything in between!

Aside from traditional cafés and coffee shops, there is also a recent rise in hugely popular Taiwanese bubble tea. So if you’re in Canary Wharf and craving some sweet tea with tapioca pearls, you are in the right place!

Here’s a roundup of some great places for bubble tea in Canary Wharf.


What is bubble tea?

Invented in Taichung, Taiwan in the 1980s. It’s a tea-based drink that’s more popular than Starbucks in Taiwan. Often times add-ins like tapioca (boba) pearls, coffee jelly or lychee jelly are mixed in to add some chewy texture along with the beverage.

T4 Tea — History

T4 is still at Canary Wharf, but their official website isn’t updated particularly frequently. They are no longer located in Crossrail Place, instead they are just inside Canada Place shopping mall — moving in November 2019.

The beautiful shop is packed full of plants, and they have a huge selection of bubble tea.

Wanyoo Esports & Wanpo Canary Wharf

Asia’s largest gaming chain Wanyoo — with over 1,000 stores globally — opened up its third UK branch in Crossrail Place at Canary Wharf in July 2020.

Apart from the 67 high-spec gaming PCs it actually has a great café section serving the finest Taiwanese Bubble Tea. This is because the Chinese gaming brand have partnered with tea shop Wanpo. (And why you’ll see the same location referred to as Wanpo or Wanyoo in Google Maps)

This is Wanpo’s first ever bubble tea shop in the UK and the Taiwanese tea is highly rated!

Unique to the UK, Wanpo is partnering with Wanyoo Esports Studios to create a tea shop and Esports experience in one convenient location.
