The Difference between Fruit Tea and Milk Tea

Everyone has their own personal preference when it comes to bubble tea. What flavour you prefer, your favourite topping, and your first-choice variation all play a part in perfecting your favourite boba beverage! But why are some people fruit tea fanatics, whilst others prefer a dash of milk?

Here at Manhua Cha, we craft delicious bubble tea kits in the UK that can be sent directly to your door! We have both fruit and milk variations to choose from, with a range of toppings and flavours on offer to craft your perfect drink at home. Read our article below to find out the key differences between fruit and milk bubble tea today!


Fruit tea flavours consist exactly of what it says on the tin; fruit syrup! From favourites such as apple and strawberry, to yummy variants like passion fruit and lychee, this tea infuses fruit and fruit juices to make a delicious, classic beverage. It can be served either hot or cold, and as always, comes with your choice of topping.

Milk tea can also be served hot or cold, and its flavours are quite similar to the popular fruit version. You can have your choice of fruit milk teas, or you can choose from a range of classic flavours, such as matcha and taro. Flavours for milk variations also range from hot drink favourites like hazelnut latte, and come in sweet options such as chocolate or cookies and cream! Our bubble tea home kits here at Manhua Cha come with a range of ingredients to make your favourite drink at home, depending on your preference!

Fruit Tea is suitable for vegans!

If you're a vegan, milk tea isn't usually an option. Unfortunately, the milk powder used in most milk teas contains dairy products, although vegan options are available in some places. Despite this, fruit tea is incredibly delicious without milk, and is a fan favourite across the world.

Here at Manhua Cha, our fruit bubble tea kits are 100% vegan friendly. Our popping juice balls are made from seaweed extract, and our jelly is made from a type of coconut pulp! To view our extensive range of bubble tea home kits, visit us here!

Milk tea is more traditional

When it comes to bubble tea's roots, the very first variants were made using milk and tapioca pearls. Over time, bubble tea connoisseurs have experimented with different flavours and toppings, giving customers more yummy options to choose from. Fruit tea has quickly become a favourite amongst bubble tea fans, but the traditional milk version still holds a special place in people's hearts.

Here at Manhua Cha in Newcastle, we sell delicious tea both in store, and we even craft bubble tea home kits to be sent directly to any door across the UK! We offer both fruit and milk variations, and our kits allow you to make your favourite beverage at home.
