Despite being a new store, Nekotea has quickly become known for its convenient location as well as a varied menu of drinks. Located in the busy Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, surrounded by many famous restaurants and coffee shops, this bubble tea shop is situed on the Grégoire de Tours street, opposite a famous Japanese restaurant. The menu is also interesting with a lot of choices from tea flavors to topping options.
The first thing you can notice when entering Nekotea is the welcoming staff. If it's difficult to choose from the dozens of drinks and toppings, do not hesitate to consult the staff. They can help you to choose the best drink. In addition, materials and ingredients are imported directly from Taiwan, and the Nekotea team also makes its own toppings and "home made" recipes. We will review the most popular drinks, which can help you narrow down your choice.
Although the name sounds familiar, the taste of Nekotea is very different.The matcha, instead of being mixed with water and poured into the milk, is mixed with brown tapioca. The pearls are still soft, chewy, sweet and flavorful. The green tea flavor is stronger but not bitter.
The most interesting part of this drink is the cream cheese on top. Combined with the delicious cream, the camellia tea is gentle. A perfect topping with this drink is aloe vera, which is very beautiful, and looks like a petal in the cup.
On the left, this is the basic milk tea flavor, milk jasmine tea, an easy to drink, and a safe choice for many people. The jasmine milk tea will also not disappoint you as it has a very balanced taste, and the tea is still flavorful and it works in harmony with the milk. Add some herbal jelly which is sweet, and will add to the flavor.
At Nekotea, you can find at least one choice that suits you, whether you like or dislike milk, or if you prefer common or special flavors.
The place is small but very cozy, and suitable for an afternoon with friends or to take a break while walking around the district.
