What is bubble tea?
Bubble tea is a flavoured tea based drink poured over “tapioca pearls” and served with ice. Invented in local tea houses in Taiwan during the 1980s, bubble teas are delicious, nutritious and fun. Our beverages are non-alcoholic, non-carbonated and have less sugar than a typical soft drink.
Bubble teas are known by many names such as boba tea, tapioca tea, boba nai cha, pearl tea, milk tea, bubble drink and tapioca pearl drink.
We offer a variety of bubble tea flavours ranging from popular classics like Mango or Strawberry, to more traditional Asian flavours like Matcha and Taro.
What are Tapioca Pearls or "Boba"?
Tapioca pearls or “boba” are small balls of tapioca which have a chewy, gummy bear texture that are added to drinks to enhance its flavour.
Tapioca pearl is a starch extracted from Cassava plant which makes the pearl gluten-free and almost protein-free. We cook our tapioca fresh every day and it takes close to an hour to prepare just one batch of tapioca.
