The Columbia/ Ellicott City area has definitely been booming with new businesses (Urban
Hotpot, Vivi, Bonchon, etc) in the most recent years but I was most excited about Tiger
Sugar. I first found out about Tiger Sugar when I saw the (I am not even exaggerating)
around the block, in 90 degree weather, middle of the workday, on a weekday line in
Fast forward to this past Saturday, I now understand the hype. We came
here on a Saturday night, around 9pm. Lots of groups social distancing outside in the
parking lot. Drink was quickly made, menu was easy to understand, and so so delicious. I
went in with no expectations as I'm not a huge fan of brown sugar boba drinks but man, this
was perfectly sweet and good tea flavor. (Compared to kung fu where sometimes the drinks
have a little powdery texture)
I'm just happy this place is 1.5 hours away from
my house so I have some self control from coming every week
Add Tiger Sugar to your list of stops on a trip to Ellicott City ASAP! Before this location
opened up, I had never tried Tiger Sugar and had mostly heard that it was overhyped / way
too sweet. But H8ERS GONNA H8 because after giving their signature #1 try, I was hooked!!
This drink is so creamy and addictive, it kind of tasted like melted coffee ice cream (which
is A+ in my book). I will say that every time I've gone back, I have opted for T4 on the
menu (Taiwan classic black tea + brown sugar with boba) which is less sweet and more
refreshing. Neither drink will make it out of the parking lot!
Tiger Sugar is more than pretty IG photos, they are the real deal. Hands down the best boba
pearls I have ever had!
Ask anybody and I think they will agree with me: when in
City, it's hard to not take a world food tour with so many great Asian eats nearby. Tiger
Sugar was the perfect way to cap off our evening of eating way too much good food (and
probably too fast).
For my inaugural drink, I went with their number 1 signature
brown sugar boba milk with cream mousse. I love the brown sugar boba pops, so I figured it
would taste the same. I did note that you can choose either a cold or hot option for the
drink, but could not change the size or level of sweetness.

came up with the little pearls mixed with big pearls idea, but give them their royalties! It
is genius - so tasty and so unique. No other boba places does this and I am seriously
hooked. My only gripe is that I want a larger size (yes, I finished my drink in the parking
