Tsaôcaa & Bào Bubble Tea Spot Opens on Ludlow Street

Posted on: April 25th, 2019 at 5:05 am by

Three months after the Thai ice creamery, Juicy Spot, faded from Ludlow Street, another snack shop is now operational.

This time, the M.O. is all things bubble tea.

Tsaôcaa & Bào recently opened at 109 Ludlow, just north of Delancey Street. It describes itself as a bubble tea business that “strives for ultimate freshness and happiness within every cup.”

Rest assured, though. Despite the glut of these places around downtown, these guys “are not here to offer New York City just another ordinary bubble tea shop that dispenses pre-made drinks out of a keg. Instead we are here to offer guaranteed freshly made drinks with our 11 different quality teas.”

Juicy Spot had called 109 Ludlow home for four short years. The space was previously occupied by GT Tailor which ultimately folded.
