Boba and Bubble Tea - Gong Cha USA

The Phenomenon of Bubble Tea and its Tapioca Pearls

Many consider Bubble Tea and its Tapioca Pearls a phenomenon of sorts and with reason… To begin with, the creation of Bubble Tea was basically on the whim of a Taiwanese girl working at a tea shop in Taiwan in the 1980’s. According to the story, the girl was on a break and she was having tea and a tapioca pudding. Apparently, she became bored and dumped her tapioca pudding into her tea and when she tasted it, it was pretty great to say the least…

Somehow, the owner of the tea shop came across his employee’s new invention and he thought it was amazing and he ended up adding it to his menu. The beverage became a hit and Bubble Tea, became extremely popular in Taiwan.

However, Gong Cha Franchise USA, which originated in Taiwan took this delicious and clever invention to the next level. Gong Cha guys and gals dedicated themselves in preparing the best Bubble Tea than any other tea shop in the area. They were able to accomplish this, by preparing their Bubble Tea beverages by only utilizing high quality teas and fresh ingredients.

In addition, they figured out that to maintain the quality taste of their teas, it was necessary to brew all their teas every four hours. They also, cook fresh, Tapioca Pearls every four hours as well. Tapioca Pearls are what really put Bubble Tea on the map. Tapioca Pearls doesn’t only make Bubble Tea more delicious, but it’s also, made Bubble Tea a fun and enjoyable drink for people worldwide.

Bubble Tea is served with a particularly thick straw, so that people are able to scoop up the yummy tapioca pearls off their Bubble Tea.

Needless to say, Gong Cha became extremely popular in Taiwan. Gong Cha’s popularity made it possible for Gong Cha tea shops to open Bubble Tea shops in the following countries:
