SA’s first gourmet bubble tea bar

BOBAR prides itself on bringing an explosion of flavour, colour, and magic with every cup of tea. BOBAR has created something for all tea lovers and those who aren’t such a fan of the regular cup of tea.

What is bubble tea?

It is a tea-based drink that originates from Taiwan. Also known as pearl milk tea, boba tea and QQ (‘chew-chew’).

The name ‘bubble tea’ originally came from the frothy bubbles that form when the drink is shaken to mix the tea, milk, and flavorings together, but over time this has changed to refer to the bubble-like tapioca pearls in the bottom of the drink.

These were the original ‘boba’, but now the terms bubble tea and boba tea are interchangeable.
