This Bubble Tea Salon is Serving Whisked-To-Order Matcha With Every Milk Imaginable

Naröcha is more than just a “tea shop”.

Owned and run by 21-year-old entrepreneur Nicole Culham, Naröcha is an experience.

Opening her first store in Melbourne’s CBD back in 2019, Culham has now opened a beautiful tea salon in Werribee, where the Matcha is hand-whisked with a full range of vegan and lactose-intolerantly friendly milks, including soy, oat and almond.

Naröcha’s new Werribee salon is a must visit. It’s intimate, with a seating capacity of 24 people, and features slick, polished concrete interiors with pops of signature minty Naröcha green and baby pink.

Tbh, there’s nothing more calming than a warm hand-whisked tea and a pop of pastel.

Although Matcha is their speciality, there are a range of playful flavours to choose from including Hojicha Makiato, Oreo Milk Tea with Matcha Pudding ($6.90), sweet Strawberry Cheesecake tea ($6.60), Double Espresso Makiato and Milo Mocha ($6.50).

In a nutshell, Naröcha combines the ancient art of Japanese tea with the fun modern world of bubble tea, a traditionally Taiwanese beverage, to create a sensory experience that will have us converted in no time.

You can visit the new Naröcha salon in Werribee, or it’s OG location in Melbourne’s CBD. They also sell their teas and DIY kits online. They even do video tutorials.
