Yelper Thomas C. wrote, "Their signature brown sugar milk tea is only served at certain times of the day, but it's worth waiting for. The sugar syrup adds an addicting aroma to a well-balanced milk tea. I really like the base quality on their drinks here. Everything tastes so fresh."
Traci K. added, "The Yifang fruit tea is delicious, refreshing and unique. Yum! Would order again! The Mudflip brown sugar boba milk tea is also very yum! The brown sugar gives the boba a unique flavor that you don't get anywhere else."
Head on over to check it out: Yifang Taiwan Fruit Tea is open from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. from Monday-Thursday and Sunday and 11 a.m.-11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
