Möge Tee, a global bubble tea chain, opened a Sunnyside location Monday.

The new franchise location—the sixteenth in New York City and eighth in Queens—has opened at 45-18 Queens Boulevard. The company has more than 380 shops worldwide.

The new location takes over the space once occupied by Kase Studio, next door to Alpha Donuts.

The Sunnyside venue joins several other Möge Tee shops scattered throughout the borough.

The company, best known for its Chinese “New-Style Tea” has stores in Flushing, Long Island City, Forest Hills, Fresh Meadows and Bayside.

The shop will serve the chain’s signature bubble teas–cold Asian teas made with sweetened milk and tapioca balls.

Featured items on the menu include fruit milk teas with a sweet and salty ‘cheese foam’ topping and fresh fruits.

Other items that will be on the drink menu include chinese tea, herbal tea, fruit slush, milk tea, green tea and yogurt drinks. No food items will be served at this location.

Dike Yu, who is a co-owner of the Sunnyside location and is originally from China, said he decided to open the Queens Boulevard location because there is a lack of bubble tea shops in the area.

“I used to live in Sunnyside and could never find a bubble tea shop,” Yu said, who lived in the neighborhood from 2017 to 2019. He now lives in Long Island City.

He said that bubble tea has grown in popularity and is consumed by people of all ethnic backgrounds.
“Everybody likes it,” Yu said.

Good bubble tea at Mr. Buncha on 40th Street as well right near the train. Welcome to the neighborhood – now I’ve got a place near each subway station.

I’ve wondered why she is permitted to camp out there with seven or eight males sleeping on matress’s. She’s a public health hazard. There’s all that garbage.When she’s moved out she goes in front of the supermarket and in a few days she’s back controlling all that public space with her piles of trash. She keeps bottles of her urine and bags of feces among the garbage. The stench is over powering.why is she allowed to do this? Some one or a bunch of some ones are not doing their job.

Take her away and throw all that crap out. She is public health hazard. Even the rats won’t go near her.
