3 Health Benefits of Bubble Tea

Bubble tea is fast becoming a wildly popular drink, but is it good for you?

The tea-based drink that has exploded in popularity in recent years since being invented in Taiwan in the 1980s, is made using tea (usually black or green) mixed with milk and tapioca balls. Bubble tea is a fun alternative to the standard cups of tea or coffee and a lighter alternative to milkshakes and desserts and here we look at 3 health benefits of bubble tea.

1 – Boosting the immune system

Green tea is a common base for bubble tea and is known to contain a high antioxidant content. Antioxidants help boost your immune system and choosing green tea is a great way of making a healthy bubble tea!

2 – Energy boost without the sugar crash

Reducing the sugar content and using green tea to provide natural caffeine will give you a healthy boost without relying on artificial sugars. While it is certainly possible to make a high-sugar bubble tea, low sugar options are a great alternative. If you run a bubble tea shop, low sugar options can be a great addition to your menu! And if you're a bubble tea fan, look out for these options in your favourite shop.

3 – Boosting your mood

Life is full of stresses. And if the last two years have taught us anything, it's that time with friends and outdoors is important! Catching up with friends over a bubble tea in a cafe or while breathing in the fresh air of the great outdoors is a great way to boost your mood. The link between mental and physical health is clear and indulging in a healthy bubble tea can be a great way to live a healthy balanced lifestyle.

These are 3 health benefits of bubble tea. Bubble tea is a fast growing takeaway drink and running a bubble tea shop can be a great business. See our other blog posts for more information on running a bubble tea shop and selecting the best ingredients.
