3 Asian Tea Shops You Haven’t Heard Of In Austin

May 29, 2015

Nowadays there’s plenty of coffee houses, tea shops, and cafes to enjoy pastries and get your caffeine fix in Austin. These newly discovered Asian tea shops have easily become my go-to spots. Enjoy freshly baked cream puffs, Taiwanese fried chicken, and bubble tea at these casual spots!


Cream Whiskers

Cream Whiskers

Located in West Campus near the University of Texas, Cream Whiskers is a local bakery and cafe serves freshly baked cream puffs. Choose from original (the “perfect” classic French puff pastry shell) or a cookie top (original shell with a crispy and butter sugar cookie crust on top). The cream puffs are pretty big, but that didn’t stop me from ordering two! The green tea flavor was my favorite.
