We believe your bubble tea addiction can also be eco-friendly.

Bubble tea first came into our lives more than a decade ago, when we were young teenagers in NYC and had spare change from our summer jobs to splurge on this delicious Taiwanese drink. We can't place our finger on what it was- the chewy bubbles, fragrant tea flavor, or the milk/creamer that they served, but we were hooked from the first sip!

Over the years, the bubble tea trend quieted down but it is now back in full force, sweeping the country from East Coast to West Coast, and even spreading globally as Japan's love affair with boba surged in 2019. We rediscovered our love of bubble tea (and Taiwan!) ourselves in the summer of 2019, and filled our Instagram stories with weekly, sometimes daily bubble tea stories. However, as fun as it was to sip our drinks through a traditional bubble tea cup, we started feeling pretty bad about our boba addiction because of the plastic waste we are helping (and paying!) to generate. We decided that it was better for the environment and our wallet to cut down on paying for bubble tea and just make it at home ourselves. After many iterations and lots of trial and error, we have crafted the perfect customizable recipes, and you can now make your perfect cup at home as well!

Boba does not need to be served in a plastic cup, with a plastic lid, and a plastic straw. Please don't be fooled into thinking that you're not contributing to the problem because you recycle. Recycling is a business that only works when there is market demand.
