There's a long tradition of people importing phenomenons to the US, like VW's from Germany, sushi from Japan, and Celine Dion from Canada, which is how you know they hate us. Well, that and the hockey. For a tea shop bringing the good stuff, hit Bubble 'N Ice
B & I looks like a brightly colored ice cream parlor, but instead serves a crazy range of Italian ices, plus 30 flavors of Taiwanese-style ice "bubble teas" (with little Gummi-like tapioca balls resting at the bottom, which shoot up the extra wide straw when you drink), and takes them both to the next level -- a ball treatment opposite of Jose Canseco's. Teas're divided into three types: Fruit Bubbles have a jasmine green tea base and come in green apple, lychee, mango, passion fruit, peach, and pomegranate; thicker Bubble Lattes're frothed with milk and're made of teas like classic black, caramel chai, and Earl Grey; and Special Teas blend a black tea base with Italian ice for concoctions like red bean, creamsicle, PB & J, piña colada, and thin mint (Samoas would've been preferable, but at least you get a lot more of these, and no annoying plastic tray). As for the ices, they're made with real fruit and come in categories like "water ices" (cotton candy, birthday cake, margarita), and "cream ices", which includes notables like s'mores, apple pie, bananas foster, Snickers, and cherry chip, who really wishes you would just get him a hooker for his birthday so he can get it over with
There's also cupcakes, cookies like oatmeal raisin, chocolate chip, and macadamia white chocolate, plus they've got free Wi-Fi, so if you forget that Canadians hate us you can head to You Tube and say It's All Coming Back To Me Now.
