Bubble Tea is a Taiwanese drink which came about in the 1980’s and is gradually taking the world by storm. There are many varieties of bubble tea (some bubble tea’s do not contain any tea at all now) but traditionally it was a sweet milky tea shaken over ice and poured over black tapioca pearls (a chewy edible treat). Interestingly, bubble tea gets its name from the froth which is formed when the milky tea was shaken with ice.
In South Africa we are finding that the most popular variety of bubble tea is a fruity flavoured tea (think iced tea) which is served over bursting bobas, a little ball that pops with liquid flavour in your mouth.
We have already helped many independent Bubble Tea shops across South Africa start up as well as helped coffee shops and restaurants offer bubble tea as an additional drink on their menus.

There are a variety of ways to make your own iced tea variety:
- You may buy an iced tea from your local super market to which you will add Bursting Bobas
- You may buy our Rooibos Infused Syrups and simply add water to the syrup and your Bobas
- You may brew your own tea and flavour it with a syrup of your choice to suit your preference and add your choice of toppings to it.
Tapioca Pearls are processed by passing the starch through a sieve and being compressed into little balls. They are then boiled until they are a gummy texture and often sweetened with sugar afterwards. Our Tapioca Pearls are commonly used as a topping in traditional bubble tea.
Normal straws simply won’t do the job, they simply are not thick enough for our toppings to be sucked up. If you prefer to stay away from our plastic straws (thank you) you may want to consider either our reusable Stainless Steel Bubble Tea Straw which are big enough to get the job done or our Fat Sized Biodegradable Straws.
