Unbelie-bubble! Bubble tea, also known as boba tea or pearl milk tea, is a Taiwanese invention that has taken the world by storm. It’s a sweet and refreshing drink made with tea (black, green, oolong, or fruit-infused), milk, and chewy tapioca balls called “boba.” The tea base can be hot or cold, and the milk can be dairy or plant-based. The boba pearls add a fun and textural element to the drink, bursting with flavour in your mouth with every sip.

How popular is it in 2024?

Bubble tea’s popularity in the UK hospitality sector has exploded in recent years. The UK bubble tea market is estimated to reach £300 million by 2025, showcasing tremendous growth potential. Major players like Costa Coffee and EL&N café group have entered the scene, indicating mainstream acceptance. The surge in its popularity can be attributed to several factors, including:

The rise of social media: Bubble tea is incredibly photogenic, with its vibrant colours and playful toppings. Instagram and TikTok have been instrumental in driving its popularity, especially among younger demographics.

The growing demand for unique and flavourful beverages: Consumers are increasingly adventurous when it comes to their drinks, and bubble tea offers a delicious and customisable experience. Flavours like taro, mango, and matcha are particularly popular, along with classic milk tea options.

The increasing availability of bubble tea shops: The number of bubble tea shops in the UK has been steadily increasing, making it more accessible to everyone.

What is needed to produce Bubble Tea?

Tea brewing machines: These machines automate the tea brewing process, ensuring consistent quality and flavour. Using specialised Teapresso machines the user can precisely control the water temperature and pressure for optimal tea extraction.

Shakers: Bubble tea is traditionally shaken to combine the ingredients and create a frothy texture. There are both electric shakers used for speed and efficiency, or manual shaking method for a more artisanal touch.

Sealing machines: Once the bubble tea is prepared, it’s sealed with a special plastic lid that has a wide straw. This allows customers to easily enjoy the tapioca pearls without spilling their drink.

In conclusion:

Bubble tea is more than just a drink; it’s a cultural phenomenon. It’s a fun and engaging experience that brings people together. With a vibrant market, dedicated fanbase, and constant evolution, the UK is well on its way to becoming a major bubble tea destination.
