We head to Taiwan to find out what is new in the bubble tea / boba world. Check out some of our photos below!
Earlier this year, we made a trip to Taiwan, the famous place of origin of all things bubble tea and the home of Chatime.
In Taiwan itself, there are about 50,000 bubble tea stores (vs only 454 Starbucks locations). Bubble tea is a way of life for the Taiwanese, and there are dizzying array of drinks of different flavor and colors. It was so inspiring.
Our team also ventured to seek new inspiration from Taiwanese food from lively night markets and quaint cafes.
We went all around Taipei and the different regions of Taiwan to eat, learn, drink and be inspired. We have freshly brewed ideas that we can't wait to bring back to our beloved customers in Minnesota.
There was one drink that stood out above the rest; the Brown Sugar Pearl Milk.This drink was sold everywhere from the night markets and fancy mall locations. We can understand why, made with fresh milk and the pillowy brown sugar pearl..it was one of the most delicious drinks we've had in years.
Chatime Minnesota, serving refreshing, modern freshly brewed teas, smoothies, coffee, and a large selections of snacks and sweets.
