I love bubble tea. Whenever the words bubble tea is mentioned, my eyes widen and lit up. I will be looking around and asking "where?". When I was in Sydney, I used to have bubble tea nearly every day.
On a recent trip to Chinatown, I noticed a brand new shop which specialises in bubble tea. I was so excited as I haven't found a shop that makes good bubble tea in London. I was too stuffed that day to have bubble tea but when my bubble tea friend who loves it as much as I do, Mili visited me in London the week after, we definitely made our way to Boba Jam.
This place is so new that you can still smell the paint that was freshly laid on the walls.
We both got a bubble tea each, with mine being a hot version and Mili’s a cold version. They are GOOD! We both agreed that the pearls are made just right. Soft with a chewy centre, with just the right balance of gumminess/springback, otherwise known as QQ in its texture.
I have found my bubble tea place!
