A kaleidoscope of ingredients can go into this beverage that bubble tea drinkers have come to love.
Coffee, tea or bubble tea? All three options are what Singaporeans flock to for their daily caffeine fix, and all are worth every single calorie. For those fans who have less of a sweet tooth, many baristas offer the choice of sweetness level so you can go from zero to a hundred per cent depending on how you want to enjoy your drink. For bubble tea, you can take personalisation to the next level by adding your choice of toppings!
Typically associated with chewy tapioca pearls, popping boba, jelly, and pudding are also popular additions that offer a change-up in consistency. Essentially, you have a free range of creativity in creating your delicious, desired concoction. This is why it comes as no surprise that we don’t just like bubble tea, we LOVE it.
