A unique drink that will keep you coming back for more
Bubble tea is a Taiwanese tea-based drink invented in Taichung back in the 1980's, but has recently been adopted by Western cultures as the new "it trend", and now I know why!
There is an almost seemingly infinite number of flavours of bubble tea and many different ingredients can be added to it, but most bubble tea contains a tea base mixed with fruit or milk with balls of tapioca and/or fruit jellies added.
I ventured to Bubble Cup, which is located inside Box Hill Central and is one of the many places within Melbourne where bubble tea is available. I tried Mango Mania with added coconut jelly, and a watermelon & strawberry fruit juice with tapioca pearls, and they were both delicious.
I highly suggest trying some of the many, many different types of bubble tea. Both drinks I had were fruit juice based rather than tea, but as a personal tea fan, I am eager to try one of the more traditional drinks soon.
