In the early 1980’s, Liu Han Chieh, a local teashop owner in Taiwan, decided to experiment with the classic milk tea drink by mixing in a few twists. Liu Han Chieh mixed the milk tea with fruit syrups, candied yams, and added the tapioca pearls in the drink. The end product, which soon became known as “bubble tea,” was officially introduced. Today, “bubble tea” remains an international favorite as its popularity continues to grow worldwide.
