Pearl Fever

Pearl Fever is a bubble tea cafe that has a few locations all over Metro Vancouver. I visited the one at SFU, which is located in the Cornerstone buildings inside the same place as Plum Noodle House. They don’t have very much seating, but it’s fine if you want to just grab a drink quickly before class.

Strawberry Lemon Hot Black Tea

Since it is winter, I wasn’t feeling a cold drink, so I went with a strawberry lemon hot black tea with pearls. This was actually my first time having a hot bubble tea drink with pearls.

The drink was very sweet from the strawberry syrup and I was glad the lemon flavour was in there to give it a bit of tartness.  The teabag was generously filled with black tea, but I didn’t get much of a tea flavour since the fruit flavours were so strong.

I was curious as to how I would like pearls in a hot drink, but I loved it. They became deliciously soft and chewy.

Honey Lemon Hot Black Tea

On my next visit I tried the honey lemon hot black tea with pearls. This has been my favourite drink from here so far.

I enjoyed the combination of honey and lemon, because it was sweet, but more subtle and not as overpowering as the strawberry.

Mango Hot Green Tea

I also tried a mango hot green tea with pearls. This drink was good, but both the green tea and the mango flavouring were pretty mild.

Overall, I’ve enjoyed the drinks from Pearl Fever. It isn’t the best bubble tea I’ve had, but with limited options at SFU, it is perfectly fine. These drinks are much better than the gross drinks from Renaissance Cafe and they have become my go to caffeine fix if I don’t want coffee.


Yes, for a good tea drink at SFU.
