Sharetea. The recently opened Sharetea in Sandy Springs offers a spin on the traditional teashop in the form of bubble tea. The petite shop — a franchise location from the popular Sharetea chain in Taiwan — offers drinks in one size and allows you to control the amount of ice and level of sweetness in your drinks (similar to other bubble tea shops). The drink menu includes flavored fruit tea, brewed tea, creama tea, fresh milk tea, milk tea and pearl milk tea, plus ice blended options. The helpful staff can provide guidance on favorite combinations and will recommend sweetness levels if you need a little advice when ordering. Sharetea is a casual spot, with just a handful of tables, so you may want to grab your drink to go.
