CHAI BUBBLE TEA

CHAI BUBBLE TEA

“I’ve been waiting…for a PEARL like you…”

Bubble Tea, or “Boba Tea”, was created in Taiwan by Liu Han-Chieh in the 1980’s when she decided, “Hey, you know what? I’m just going to add tapioca pearls to my iced tea.” A legend was born and from there the sky was the limit.  From sweet milky tea, to fresh fruit and ice, there is a bubble tea for everyone.

Using our Calmer range, we experimented with a few bubble teas of our own, and dare we say, these may be some of our new fave summer sippers. Afterall, how often do you get to both chew and drink a beverage?

“Uptown Girl? She’s been drinkin’ all the uptown pearls…”
