OUR STORY

Born and raised in Taichung, Taiwan, the city where bubble tea originated, it was Huiyi's dream to start her own store in America. Shake It's menu is born from her authentic experiences, and countless evenings tinkering with her own home-made bubble tea recipes.  

To Huiyi, quality was everything. From outstanding customer service to making Shake It a happy home for its employees, she opened Shake It and lead the store courageously. In april 2019 she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and passed away august 2019. She is a beautiful, kind, generous soul, and we strive to carry on her spirit in the store today. 

We are a local business with a single location in Kirkland, WA. We may be small, but our drinks pack a quality punch. 

In Memory of Huiyi Ko

1972 -2019

An amazing mother and a beautiful soul.
