History of bubble tea
There are different stories about the origin of bubble tea and go back hundreds of years, sometimes even thousands. But the most acceptable story belongs to the ancient, mythical, and mysterious era of the 1980s.

When it comes to the exact origin of bubble tea, there are multiple locations, originators, and backstories involved. The most competing stories are from Hanlin Tea room in Tainan, Taiwan, and the Shun Shui Tang tearoom in Taichung, Taiwan.

Hanlin’s story
According to this claim, bubble tea was invented by Tu Tsong-He back in 1986. He was the owner of the Hanlin Tea Room in Tainan, Taiwan. One day he saw tapioca balls in the Ya Mu Liao market and decided to experiment with them. He added the tapioca balls in the black milk tea and called it “pearl tea.”

His customers like the new flavor, and it became popular over time. The Hanlin Tea Room then switched from white to black tea with brown sugar and honey for added flavors. But some stores offer both black and white tea options to their customers even today.

Chun Shui Tang’s Story
This story states that Liu Han-Chieh, the founder of Chun Shui Tang tearoom, visited Japan in the 80s. He was impressed with the taste of famous Japanese ice cold brew. After his return, he started serving cold tea to the Chinese and received an overwhelming response.

This new tea recipe became popular, and some other stores started serving it under the teahouse’s umbrella. But the credit for inventing the bubble tea goes to Lin Hsiu Hui, who was the product manager in the teahouse.

During a meeting in 1988, Lin Hsiu Hui dumped some tapioca balls into her cold tea that tasted good. Her experiment was a hit and became a popular drink at the teahouse and the rest of Taiwan.
In this way, bubble tea was invented and became famous throughout the world. You will find several stores serving bubble tea in Tempa alone, where you can enjoy this delicious item.
