What I Tried
I bought three of their top drinks to try: Lychee Jade Tea with Aloe Vera; Sweet Potato Pearl Fresh Milk Black Tea, and Wintermelon Pearl Lemonade.
I really enjoyed Lychee Jade Tea with Aloe Vera which had a lovely fresh green-floral aroma, sweet flavor, and clean, delicate flavour. I also really liked the soft, jelly texture of the aloe vera (which I normally don’t order as a topping).
The Wintermelon Pearl Lemonade tasted more of lemonade than wintermelon. The pearls were reasonably soft and chewy.
The Sweet Potato Pearl Fresh Milk Black Tea was OK. I had a tasting (as I’m lactose intolerant) and gave the rest to my family. It had a nice sweet potato taste combined with the richness of fresh milk.
Chun Fun How Fashionable Cups
Chun Fun How is also known for their fashionable cups featuring floral designs.
They have a lovely Vancouver-inspired design cup with notable landmarks including the Vancouver Lookout, Science World, the Inukshuk, the Lions Gate Bridge, Canada Place. There were also some animals on the design including a killer whale, a polar bear, sea otters, and Canada geese.
This cherry blossom design was quite pretty.
And another floral design. I guess if you buy multiple drinks, you could get different pattern cups.
The takeout menu also features the Vancouver design cup as well as local landmarks.

I really enjoyed the Lychee Jade Tea with Aloe Vera drink and would be interested in trying more from the Aloe Vera series. I also want to try the Sugar Cane series as well as Flavoured Fruit Teas.
