If you still haven't tried bubble tea, what are you waiting for?! This delicious drink comes in a range of different flavours and variations perfect for everyone's preferences.

Here at Manhua Cha, we craft and deliver yummy DIY bubble tea kits to homes across the UK. Complete with ingredients of your choice and an easy-to-follow recipe, you can enjoy bubble tea at home or you can make it for on the go! Wondering if boba tea is for you? If you like the treats below, we're sure there's a flavour you'll love!

A Good Old Cuppa or Iced Tea

There's nothing quite like a cup of tea; it's what the British are known for drinking, and it never fails to warm us to the core. Although bubble tea is traditionally enjoyed ice cold, you can still taste the tea base beneath the delicious toppings and flavours! If you love a range of different teas, such as green tea or other variants, boba tea is a great alternative if you're looking to switch it up.

Boba tea closely resembles iced tea, only this time, there are fun toppings such as tapioca pearls and popping boba to enjoy! When looking for your first bubble tea set, look towards a fruit tea if you're partial to a glass of iced tea every now and again!


Milkshakes are great choice in warm weather. They can cool you down as well as provide a tasty flavour you can enjoy in the heat. Classic milk tea is the perfect option if you love an ice-cold milkshake, and it comes in a range of flavours, from fan favourite strawberry to the unusual honeydew melon.

If you're willing to give it a go, try our brown sugar milk tea out for size. They don't include any tea, but you still get the boba tea experience nonetheless! Each serving comes with chewy tapioca pearls to provide you with the traditional setting of drinking regular bubble tea! To view our kits, you can visit us here.


A classic dessert at all children's birthday parties, jelly is a simple dish with lots of fun and flavour packed in. Its fruity choices resemble boba tea, as they're both yummy and recognisable. Jelly is a popular topping for some boba tea flavours, and is a great alternative if tapioca pearls aren’t your cup of tea (literally!)

From tasty pineapple jelly to funky rainbow jelly, you can add your choice to any of our boba tea flavours! We even have boba kits for beginners, with flavour and topping combinations chosen by the experts.


A chewy treat popular in Japan, mochi comes in a range of different flavours and has a tasty filling. We've mentioned in a previous blog that mochi is a great snack to pair with bubble tea, so if you love the snack, then you'll love the drink! Its chewy texture resembles tapioca pearls, but its variety of tastes make it stand out from the crowd!

Here at Manhua Cha, we don't just craft and serve delicious bubble tea. We have a collection of Asian and American snacks that are hard to find in stores in the UK! From Mochi to Nerds, we've got your next sweet fix covered! To view all of our sweets and snacks, please visit us here.
