Words by Molly Allen
I love bubble tea. Coming from Taiwan, the drink includes a tea base and comes in a wide variety of flavours. From creamy milk teas to rejuvenating fruit flavours, the drink is unbelievably versatile! The tea likewise normally includes toppings. Pudding pearls, standing out balls and also jelly are just some of the toppings readily available, and they as well come in numerous flavours. Given that relocating to Cardiff I have actually discovered that there are many bubble tea areas around the city, so I determined to compose my thoughts on some of them!
Bubbleology– St Mary’s Road
Taking on a science style, ‘Bubbleology’ is an excellent location to visit for those who want to have their first bubble tea. This restaurant additionally easily provides delivery on Uber Consumes, Deliveroo as well as Simply Eat. The part sizes are very generous, with a ‘super-size’ only being 20p added. My recommended drink of choice is the rose milk tea with lychee standing out bubbles (the drink additionally comes with totally free strawberry jelly!).
One disadvantage is the garnishes cost additional to include, while at other areas they are consisted of within the drink. It is additionally worth mentioning that despite the vast choice of flavours, there are other places that provide more alternatives. I also once tried a taro milk tea as well as the appearance was quite fine-grained, so I would certainly say that the restaurant can often be trial and error when it comes to taste.
Bubble Base– Queen’s Gallery
This restaurant was the first I went to in Cardiff when beginning University, and also the tea is exceptional! The portion dimension is respectable as well as is around the same size as Bubbleology, and they additionally provide delivery on Deliveroo as well as Just Eat (when we aren’t in lockdown!).
I would highly advise getting a drink from Bubble Base once it resumes! The tea is truthfully scrumptious as well as a suitable cost, and also I would recommend attempting the taro milk tea with lychee boba.
Tealith– Morgan Quarter.
Tealith offer a wide range of flavours, including some more experimental ones. They offer ‘carbonated teas’ which are soft drinks blended with tea, so if you are looking for something various to attempt this is the best location for you! They likewise have shipment as well as supply a collection service on their web site. My favourite choice would be the taro bubble shake.
One objection is the portion dimensions are slightly smaller sized than other areas. They likewise only supply bubble shakes on collection. Because of lockdown, they are also currently not available, however ensure to look into their tasty drinks once they reopen! They are a fantastic place to go with experimental flavours!
Boba Time– Cardiff College’s Student’s Union as well as Capitol Centre.
Boba Time has two different places, and both are convenient for pupils. They provide on Deliveroo, as well as at the time of writing this if you spend ₤ 10 you receive a cost-free drink. So if you are trying to find a reward you can get three and consume them throughout the day, or welcome your housemates to join you and also split the cost! My much-loved is the pineapple jasmine fruit tea with passionfruit boba.
The only adverse that comes to mind is the section dimensions are not as huge as other areas. However, with the on-line offer presently occurring on Deliveroo it works out less costly to get from here. I would very recommend Boba Time!
Mooboo– St John Street.
Mooboo is among the newer dining establishments in Cardiff, and it does not dissatisfy. Offered on Deliveroo, this restaurant supplies the most flavours of them all! They all taste amazing and also be available in a good section size. This is just one of the dining establishments I order from one of the most. I would certainly suggest trying the mango milk tea or the strawberry milk tea, both with cherry popping bubbles.
One of the toppings I would certainly not advise is celebrity mousse covering. The preference was fairly salted and also a weird consistency that really did not complement the flavour of tea I selected. If you are seeking something new to try go for it, yet if you are seeking simply a typical tea Mooboo is a good place to go to!
Fang’s Oriental Pastry shop– Woodville Road.
Fang’s Asian Pastry shop is my favourite bubble tea location in Cardiff. Situated on Woodville Roadway, it is a small business that also supplies scrumptious baked goods! The tea preferences remarkable and also is in my point of view the very best in Cardiff. The section dimensions are generous, as well as the staff are extremely friendly. The rates are likewise excellent as well! I often tend to buy the mango milk tea with passionfruit bubbles.
The only disadvantage to this restaurant would certainly be that it does not provide delivery as well as the range of drinks is fairly small. Nonetheless, its currently open for collection and by purchasing from them you are sustaining a local business. If you like bubble tea I would honestly advise Fang’s Oriental Bakery!
