Bubble Tea coming to Switzerland (at last)

While strolling towards the venue last night, I noticed a window. After further inspecting the various stickers and reading the writing, yours truly jumped for joy. Apparently, they are opening a bubble tea joint in Zurich, on Militaerstrasse.

Here is the link...www.sabotai.ch
I'm looking forward to setting up a bubble tea event, once the place is up and running.

Bubble tea is an urban modern tea available in many flavors...it's main trait is that you can have it with Tapioca balls and jelly which you drink through a large straw. It originated in Tiawan, but quickly became popular in north america and england.

Re: Bubble Tea coming to Switzerland (at last)

Back in the day, in London, when all the pubs were closed you could go to China Town and order 'Fizzy Tea' - you'd get beer in a teapot.

Re: Bubble Tea coming to Switzerland (at last)

We had that stuff in the US thinking it was made from real ingredients - its not.

Its a powder

Its very sweet

It tastes shit

FFS - why does Switzerland need it??

Re: Bubble Tea coming to Switzerland (at last)

..so yeah, prime example why I tend to dislike this country. The place is still down with the "coming soon" announcement. If they were building on anticipation, then they surely manage to do a good job.

BUt his information was no more commercial than your original post - both being informative for anyone keen to try drinking a fruit flavoured drink with blobs the texture of frog eggs.

Adrian, where are you when you are needed on a thread? Remind me, what was the writing on your can of pearl tea????
