OUR STORY

   品牌故事

HELLO,
JASMINE!

Hello Jasmine的店名源於老闆娘的英文名Jasmine,

也是茉莉綠茶的意思。

Hello是代表每日暖心的問候。

老闆們在創立品牌時,希望顧客能每日來品茶用餐,

讓店裡貼心的問候能天天傳達給顧客。

Named after the founder’s wife, “Jasmine,"

the name retells the love story of the founder and his wife and when they started the business together.

“Hello,” an everyday greeting to the customers,

and “Jasmine,” like jasmine green tea;

at “Hello Jasmine,” we anticipate customers visiting HJ as we deliver warm greetings. 

FROM TAIWAN TO CHICAGO

Hello Jasmine好初台灣於2016年在與台灣相隔一萬兩千一百四十四公里的芝加哥誕生。秉持著台灣人腳踏實地、勤奮細心的精神,老闆們靠著對台灣文化及美食的熱情,還有想要做出道地台灣味的決心,研發製作出一杯杯、一道道原汁原味的台灣小吃和飲品,其中最受歡迎的鹽酥雞和珍珠奶茶,更是讓許多海外遊子飽嘗滿滿的家鄉味。

 

從原來小小的火鍋店吧檯,到現在S Clark Street獨立的店面,Hello Jasmine好初台灣正在一步一腳印地壯大團隊、實踐理想。即使隨著時間的過去,仍堅定地守護著最初的信念——Hello Jasmine好初台灣賣的不只是小吃和手搖飲,而是紮紮實實的台灣精神。

Located in Chicago, the Windy City, 7,546 miles away from Taiwan, Hello Jasmine is home to a wide variety of authentic Taiwanese dishes and drinks.

After moving to Chicago, the founders are determined to create Taiwanese Bento, snacks and bubble tea that deliver the exact flavor they grew up loving. After countless attempts, they can finally present the most authentic Taiwanese flavor to people in Chicago, and for Taiwanese people experience a home away from home. 

Hello Jasmine is currently building up a team to get closer to achieving the dream. Originally located in a tiny bar that shared the space with a hotpot restaurant, Hello Jasmine has now opened its own store on S Clark Street near Chinatown. Although the company is growing, the mission of the brand will stay the same - we care about what our customers think and we will always deliver the highest standard of quality for every creation we make. 
 

WHY WE'RE UNIQUE

好初台灣堅持真材實料,注重每個製作的細節,

只為呈現原汁原味的台灣味。

 

各種飲品皆是使用台灣進口的茶葉和黑糖、新鮮的水果,

及高品質的粉圓製作而成。為了呈現最完美的口感,各式茶品及黑糖粉圓皆於每日早上由員工現泡、熬煮而成。

小吃及便當則是由老闆及老闆娘親自研發,由員工現點現做。

從醬油到炸粉、胡椒粉,每個小細節都堅持要完整的保留台灣風味。

除了台灣最受歡迎的鹽酥雞、滷肉飯、芝麻涼麵外,

好初台灣也取得台灣新竹家鄉炭烤雞排北美獨家代理權。特色燒烤醬汁是由數種中藥材精心熬煮而成,滿滿家鄉味的好醬料,便是讓老闆在美國仍念念不忘,專程回台請求加盟的好味道。

 

To provide the most authentic, high-quality Taiwanese dishes and drinks, our team sources the ingredients responsibly and pays attention to details.

 

What makes us different

is a noticeable difference in the ingredients - no powders!

We pride ourselves on using “real” ingredients

- loose-leaf tea and brown sugar imported from Taiwan, fresh fruits and the finest tapioca pearls.

The freshly brewed teas and slowly cooked bubbles

are made by own staff daily. 

We also proudly offer authentic Taiwanese bento and snacks.

Every recipe is perfected by the founders after countless tries.

We promise every dish is freshly made after the orders are received.

Hello Jasmine also serves Taiwanese grilled chicken steak, which is exclusively distributed in North America.

Different from common chicken steak,

ours is coated with special grilling sauce made from several kinds of Chinese herbal medicine that make it rich in flavor. 

OUR TAPIOCA

Hello Jasmine好初台灣的珍珠都是由團隊於每日早上開店前新鮮熬煮,軟硬適中,非常彈牙,甚至帶有香甜的黑糖風味,讓人想一口接一口的品嚐。

 

Our tapioca pearls are freshly cooked every morning right before the store opens. The chewy bubbles are brown sugar flavored, which makes them more addictive than regular tapioca pearls. 

OUR TEA

Hello Jasmine堅持使用台灣嚴選的茶葉沖泡各式茶品。

我們每年皆會飛回台灣親自篩選茶葉,將有特色的茶品新品帶回Hello Jasmine分享給顧客。

因為使用高品質的茶葉沖泡,我們的茶品不但能以奶茶、鮮奶茶和奶蓋茶的方式呈現,更能以純茶方式享用,且多數的茶不需加糖便能自然回甘。

與普通的珍珠奶茶店不同,我們使用科學的方式手工現泡茶葉,精準的從量水溫、量茶到泡茶,為的就是給顧客品質最穩定的茶品。

我們堅持每個茶桶保持在固定的溫度,絕不過量泡茶,確保茶品不會因為變涼而產生苦澀味。

Hello Jasmine stands out from its competitors by using real tea from Taiwan. 

Every kind of tea is cherry-picked by our team after tea testing every year and can be presented as milk tea, fresh milk tea, cheese tea, and even the simplest pure tea without any sugar.

The amount of tea leaves and the temperature of the water are carefully measured to make the finest quality tea. To avoid bitterness, the temperature of the teas is also strictly controlled before serving to our customers.
