Ice Cold vs Hot Bubble Tea: What's Best for You?

Back in the 1980's, the very first bubble tea variant was piping hot, with chewy tapioca pearls added to give it that unique edge. Nowadays, ice cold boba tea is probably the most popular choice, with plenty of yummy flavours to choose from. If you're new and looking to order bubble tea online, you may be wondering which option to choose. Luckily, we're here to help!

Here at Manhua Cha, we create delicious beverages in our bubble tea store in Newcastle, as well as delivering handy DIY boba tea kits to homes across the UK. With plenty of hot and cold variants to choose from, as well as tasty international treats, we've got your next favourite drink here! 


If You Prefer a Refreshing Taste

On a hot summer day, there's nothing quite like an ice-cold, refreshing fruity drink to get you through the day. Bubble tea is a great choice for the hot weather, as they not only have those fruity flavours that everyone craves, but they come with fun toppings that you can suck up through your chunky straw! For a drink you can carry with you on a lovely summer's day, ice-cold bubble tea is perfect for you.

Our bubble tea kits come with all the ingredients you'll need to make these delicious drinks at home, minus the ice! With classic favourites such as cherry and apple to more tropical tastes like mango and passion fruit, all flavours can be paired with a topping of your choice, whether you love tapioca pearls, popping juice balls or jelly.

If You Can't Live Without Your Afternoon Brew!

As Brits, it's a common stereotype that we love our tea, and it's probably the most truthful cliché of them all! We consume 60 billion cups of tea a year, and some people are branching out and trying new and exciting flavours! Hot bubble tea flavours come in a range of coffee shop favourites, such as pumpkin spice and roasted hazelnut, so you can't go wrong!

Our tasty variants here at Manhua Cha make a great midday treat and late-night beverage, if you're looking to cuddle up in front of the TV. What makes our hot tea special, however, is the tasty toppings you can add to your drink! Fancy giving hot boba tea a go? Check out our collection here.
