Bubble Tea Doodle: The popular Taiwanese beverage bubble tea sometimes referred to as boba tea, has become a global phenomenon. Bubble tea is a tasty and refreshing treat because of its distinctive combination of tea, milk, and chewy tapioca balls. In this article, we’ll examine the origins of bubble tea, the factors that contributed to its success, its components, and even a straightforward recipe for brewing your own.
Bubble tea was first invented in Taiwan in the 1980s. The drink quickly became popular among locals and soon spread to other parts of Asia. Today, bubble tea has become a global phenomenon, with chains like Chatime, Gong Cha, and CoCo expanding globally. In 1986, Taiwanese artist and entrepreneur Tu Tsong in Tainan city was experimenting with different drinks and ingredients when he stumbled upon the idea of adding chewy tapioca balls to her tea. This combination quickly became a hit among her customers, and soon bubble tea was born. The drink spread throughout Taiwan and eventually gained popularity around the world, with bubble tea shops popping up in major cities everywhere.
The distinctive flavor and texture of bubble tea are responsible for its appeal. The flavor profile of the drink—sweetened tea, rich milk, and chewy tapioca balls—is distinctive and pleasant. With a vast selection of flavors and toppings, bubble tea may also be customized. In addition, bubble tea is frequently chosen by friends and family since it is thought of as a playful and convivial beverage. As a result of its rising popularity, bubble tea has established itself as a mainstay in Asian cuisine and has even given rise to a number of related beverages, including bubble coffee and bubble smoothies.
A recent study predicts that the bubble tea market would expand by about $2 billion by 2027, reaching a staggering $4.3 billion.
While the beverage has been appearing on menus outside of Asia for a while, orders of bubble tea in Southeast Asia saw a 3,000% spike in 2018 alone.
