Indians are leading tea drinkers across the globe but when an adventurous gentleman attempted to familiarize us desis with our good ol’ chai but topped with bubbles, let’s say, we all had contrasting opinions! But keeping in mind the scopes of lucratively introducing a fresh nudge in the existing tea market, Boba or Bubble Tea is now all the rage!

Of course we need our chai like the way we prefer our dramas- absolutely brewed to perfection and gradually leaving an after-taste even after the last sip. So on a similar note, after revolutionizing the definition of fancy tea in cities like Kanpur, Gurugram and Mumbai, Dr. Bubbles will shortly be opening in Lucknow. Hallelujah!

All about the Bubble Brew!

Bubble Tea is synonymous to freshly flavoured fruit and milk teas with natural tapioca balls that you suck up through a big fat straw- a quirky snack and drink in one! The origins of bubble tea can be traced back to Taiwan and with a base of green tea, black/red tea or white tea (all rich with antioxidants), the fruit teas here are infused with natural fruit flavourings!

The tapioca balls are sometimes referred to as ‘Pearls’ or ‘Boba’, which some people say over time has evolved into the word ‘Bubble’. They also have a special shaking machine to churn out perfect floating bubbles that are created by the vigorous shaking involved in making Bubble tea.

Traditionally bubble tea is made only with black tea. But since Indians prefer the heavily boiled milky version and these days the millennials are all about the green brew, this newbie comes with its health benefits too, to pursue the consumers.

Boba tea is on the lines of being nutritious when compared to other tetra-pack juices and soda based beverages and it also becomes a drink you can indulge in without absorbing too many calories.

So the good news is that Dr. Bubbles will be brewing and bubbling really soon in Patrakarpuram Market, Gomti Nagar! Stay tuned because the stuff here will be like nothing you’ve tasted before.
