In stressful and uncertain times like these, we know we cannot do without mask-wearing, hand-washing, and taking the Covid-19 vaccine – when our turn comes eventually. We also know very well that we cannot do without stress-relievers and mood-boosters like… bubble tea.
Reportedly invented in Taiwan in the 1980s, bubble tea (or BBT as it’s affectionately known in Singapore) was initially a hot dessert drink that contained Taiwanese black tea, condensed milk, honey and tapioca pearls. These days, bubble tea is usually served ice cold, in a dizzying range of flavours – mango, grapefruit, matcha, taro, avocado and even savoury cheese.
Remember how bubble tea became such an essentiali-tea during last year’s circuit breaker? Well, even though we are nowhere near a BBT drought (fingers crossed) in Singapore, bubble tea remains highly sought after.
Whether you’re having a rough day at work, running errands outside or simply chilling with K-dramas at home, BBT offers an indescribably warm and fuzzy comfort that we doubt any BFF can measure up to. For some of us, bubble tea has become a must-have every day, or every other day.
To ensure you always have BBT at your fingertips, here’s a list of brands that offer bubble tea delivery in Singapore. Keep this handy, so you can skip the queues and crowds outside, and enjoy a drink anytime you like.
