The evolution of bubble tea

2737 BC


The Chinese Emperor Sen Nung was resting in a camellia sinensis field while his servant was boiling water to drink. When leaves from the trees blew into the pot and coloured the water, Shen Nung, a renowned herbalist himself, decided to try the infusion and gave it the title renowned today as tea.

The first cup of Bubble tea

Xiuhui Lin, who worked at a tea shop, attempted to mix tapioca (a common Taiwanese dessert) with milk tea. At first, she only shared this recipe with her boss and co-workers. Everyone loved it and she decided to share it with the world as a new product. The tapiocas looked like pearls and was given the Chinese name - Pearl Milk Tea.

What is
Bubble Tea?

Originally from Taiwan, bubble tea, aka boba, milk tea or pearl milk tea, is made with a milk tea base and tapioca dessert as a topping inside the drink. It is fun, filling and delicious. Modern day bubble tea vary from many different flavours, styles, toppings and ingredients shared all over the world.

Tapioca pearls, or bubbles, is just one of the various toppings that can go inside the drink. It can vary from mango chunks, fruit jellies, red bean, aloe chunks and many more.

Although it originated from Asia, bubble tea is globally recognized, and friends and family can gather to go for “bubble tea runs”.
