I first learnt about Bubble Tea when I was a young gyaru in London; I didn’t really know what to expect but I knew that as soon as I accidentally gulped down the tapioca that I was in love. I couldn’t get enough of the squishy balls at the bottom of my cup and soon I was going for bubble tea at every gyaru meet we had. Unfortunately I’ve long moved away from London and my favourite bubble tea cafes, and had lost all hope that I would go again. But, as life would have it, one of my best friends, Amy, introduced me to Bubble Boba, and I was over the moon! And a few weeks ago she invited me to their first ever masterclass and of course I HAD to say yes.
About Bubble Boba
Bubble Boba resides in Fargo Village, Coventry, and they’ve opened up their second store in Cardiff. It has such a friendly atmosphere and I often come here with my friends whenever I pop into Fargo. There’s a chance to have a go at Mario Kart on quieter days, which is so much fun! The Bubble Boba masterclass is fairly new – we were the first ones to try it out – and they offer classes for up to 12 people.
Our Bubble Boba masterclass was around 90 minutes and involved: some insightful videos on the history and different methods of bubble tea; trying out different teas; tasting some (gasp) BUBBLE WAFFLES, my favourite was the unicorn one pictured above; a lesson on how to make our own fruit tea; as well as an introduction to their new Easter flavours which will be released on April 1st. I had SO much fun shaking up my creation as if I was making cocktails, and the owner of Bubble Boba noticed how much I loved tapioca that she gave me a whole cup full of it. It really, really made my evening, and I was so happy with how attentive she was! In terms of the teas I had, I made the Cherry Blossom Fruit Tea with lychee boba and Mini Egg Choc Chip Milkshake.
Good news is that you too can have your own lil’ bubble tea class over at Bubble Boba! Click here for more details.
