Our Story

Founded in 2012 by a couple from Taiwan, Ma Tea House provides authentic Taiwanese bubble tea to the greater Chicago area.

Few words about us

Surprised that there were no authentic or dedicated bubble tea shops in the Chicagoland area at the time, the couple decided to open Ma Tea House to introduce fresh, authentic bubble tea to the Midwest. After spending months in Taiwan learning to perfect the bubble tea drinks, Ma Tea House opened its first store at Fox Valley Mall, located in Aurora, Illinois in 2013.

At Ma Tea House, we use ingredients/tea shipped directly from Taiwan to provide the best quality and taste. Thanks to customers’ continuous support, Ma Tea House is experiencing high percentage of growth year over year. As such, even during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ma Tea House opened its second store in 2021 at Orland Square Mall, located in Orland Park, Illinois. The success of our second store in Orland Square Mall is a testament to the premium quality of our products and services. Although there is still a long way to go, we are one step closer to our goal – to introduce delicious and authentic Taiwanese bubble tea to the Midwest USA. We welcome you to experience this journey with us!
