Make Bubble Tea Your Go-To Alternative to Coffee

Getting your regular caffeine fix in the morning is not just about quenching your thirst; it’s also about the ritual and kick-starting your day. Let's face it, some of us need a little help waking up and a cup of joe is the best way to do that.

But when the temperature rises, sometimes you just need something more refreshing and chilled, instead of reaching for a steaming-hot brew. Luckily, there are a few tasty alternatives that replicate that morning refreshment without the heat. 

In this piece, we’re running you through the variety of bubble teas on the market today, including our crowd-favourites. Rising in popularity, these delicious beverages are becoming the common replacement for hot teas and coffees, complete with fancy add-ons to make them even more enjoyable. 

What is Bubble Tea?

People across Australia have been enjoying the delicious benefits of this drink for a while now – however, not everyone has heard of it or discovered the wonders of this beverage. So what exactly is it, and what makes it a great choice compared with others?

Despite its name, this sweet beverage isn't always bubbly or made with tea. It has a base of fruit, tea, coffee, milk and 'pearls', but other ingredients like jellies and syrup are also common. 

Originating in Taiwan, the ‘bubbles’ in the name actually refer to the frothy milk formed when shaken, rather than the tapioca or popping pearls at the bottom. 

Choosing these mouth-watering drinks as an alternative to your daily coffee is an easy switch, mostly because there’s so much variety to choose from when it comes to flavours. Trust us when we say you’ll never get bored of this morning treat.

You can even make your blend whatever you want it to be – whether you want to play it safe with traditional flavours, or try a whole new sensation; that’s half the fun.
