Enhancing the Campus Experience: Bubble Tea Meets University Catering

Bubble tea has become a staple in the lives of many university students. Its popularity can be attributed to the variety of flavours, the fun of chewy tapioca pearls and the customisable nature of the drink. As bubble tea is so versatile, it’s an all-year-round drink. Due to its ability to be both hot and cold, the creativity is endless providing students a range of different drink opportunities for different occasions and seasons.
