The Bubble Tea trend comes to Bold Street

Premium bubble tea brand Gong cha is opening in Liverpool, fuelling the bubble tea trend in England.

The well-known bubble tea brand from Taiwan will open its doors on Bold Street in August offering over 40 drinks featuring a range of textures and layers alongside pearls, fruit jellies and milk foam to create enticing tastes and flavours.   

Popular variations include the ever-popular ‘Dirtea’, a dessert-like drink combining their signature milk foam, fresh milk, brown sugar pearls and topped off with Oreo crumbs.

Other favourites include ‘Strawberry Milk Green Tea’, ‘Mango Matcha’ and ‘Lemon Juice with Ai-Yu Jelly & White Pearl’.

To celebrate the launch, Gong cha is giving away a free drink to the first 100 customers through the door on opening day.

In addition, all customers will be able to enjoy an exclusive offer of a free drink with every purchase on selected drinks throughout the opening weekend.

Gong cha translates as ‘tribute tea for the emperor’ and is the most recognised bubble tea brand globally with 1,500 outlets across 20 different territories as far reaching as Taiwan, Korea, New Zealand and the USA.

Justin Liew, head of Gong cha England, said:

“The bubble tea trend has gripped Asia, Oceania and the US, where it is considered a Taiwanese speciality. We are confident the people of Liverpool will love it once they’ve tried it.

Bold Street is a meeting place for people who like to try new things and pick up on trends and we are locating our store at its heart to offer the refreshing bubble tea range to those who are curious to sample a completely fresh taste sensation.”

The Liverpool store will be open Monday to Sunday from 12PM to 8PM at 13 Bold Street, Liverpool L1 4DJ from late August.
