Beverages from Bubbleicious, who opened for business two weeks ago, was hatched in Phuket where bubble tea is popular. Bubbled flavours include passionfruit, mocha, coconut and mocha. The 'bubble' means additions of squishy lollies such as jelly or juice poppers. Bubbleicious prefer to serve their tea with milk. The Green Apple tea with Tapioca Pearls was extra sweet. The straws are fat so that the pearls can be sucked up.
