FAQ

What is bubble tea?

Bubble tea is a drink originated in Taiwan. It is a cocktail-like drink based on fresh tea we brew every day. What makes bubble tea even more special is the addition of “bubbles” (varying between jellies, tapioca, or fruit pearls) that have funky textures and juices of flavors, creating special sensations on your taste buds. The best way to find out how a bubble tea taste like, is to come by and try!

What is tapioca?

Tapioca is a 100% natural product made out of cassava. It has chewy texture like gummy bears. Tapioca is prepared freshly on a daily basis. Next to that, it contains 0% fat!

Why are your drinks more expensive than other bubble tea shops?

We believe in working with the highest quality ingredients to make that perfect bubble tea for you. In comparison with other bubble tea shops, who mostly do business with a European based wholesaler, we are the only bubble tea chain store in the Netherlands who imports all original ingredients directly from Taiwan. The reason for doing direct business with Taiwan is that we want to keep in control of the quality of our products. As we do quality control by ourselves and ask to customize our ingredients, our products are slightly more expensive. For example: Our popping bobas contain 50% less sugar than other bubble tea shops. Therefore, our popping bobas have more fruit taste.

Do you also sell warm teas?

Yes we do! For our hot teas, we brew only the best quality loos-leaf teas. To guarantee maximum freshness, we brew our teas on the spot, just for you. You can choose between our plain hot teas that are refreshing and soothing, or hot fruit teas which go a step ahead, and have been infused with handpicked seasonal fruits.

Can I mix flavors?

Bubble tea is a (non-alcoholic) cocktail-like drink based on fresh tea. You can mix any flavor you like! Try for example a coconut pineapple combination!

Do you have secret flavors?

No need to be shy. Ask our tearistas, they are happy to surprise you with new flavors.
