But what is Bubble Tea?

Originating from Taiwan in the 1980s, bubble tea (also known as boba or pearl milk tea) is a delightful concoction that combines tea, milk, sweeteners, and various toppings.

The most iconic feature of bubble tea is the chewy tapioca pearls, also called “boba,” which are often added to the drink. These little pearls create a unique texture and add a playful element to every sip.

What does it look like?

Part of the fun with bubble tea is its quirky appearance!

The drink is often served in clear plastic cups with an oversized straw, allowing you to sip the tea and chew on the boba pearls simultaneously.

This playful experience has become a social media sensation with countless Instagram-worthy posts featuring the colourful layers and satisfying ‘straw puncturing the seal’ sound.

When it comes to toppings, boba pearls are just the beginning.

Many bubble tea shops offer a variety of options such as jelly cubes, fruit bits, aloe vera, or even popping boba, which are small juice-filled balls that burst with flavor when you bite into them.

These toppings add a delightful surprise with each sip!
