What Toppings Can I Add to My Unusual Bubble Teas?

As bubble tea becomes a fast favourite across the globe, more and more adventurous flavours are being developed. What once started out as a traditional milk tea with chewy tapioca pearls has now expanded into delicious fruit teas and popping juice balls for toppings! There are now popular soda flavours and cocktails that have been adapted into boba tea form, which you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home in a handy bubble tea kit.

Here at Manhua Cha, we craft and deliver delicious boba tea kits to homes across the UK, packed full of your choice of flavours and bubble tea toppings! Each kit comes with an easy-to-follow recipe, enabling you to enjoy bubble tea at home! All of our toppings are suitable for vegetarians and vegans too! If you want to try some unique flavours, read our article below!


Pina Colada

As a popular cocktail that is enjoyed by millions around the world, the pina colada has been adapted into alcohol free variants for everyone to enjoy. Bubble tea is no exception; that delicious pineapple and coconut combination can be incorporated into a tasty boba tea beverage, but what toppings would suit it best?

If you want to enhance the pineapple or coconut flavours, consider looking towards pineapple popping boba or coconut respectively. It'll help bring the flavours out more, and can make your drink even tastier! To try a pina colada bubble tea kit for yourself, please take a look at our four drink kits here!


Irn Bru

A popular soda that hails from Scotland, Irn Bru tastes familiarly like blackcurrant and is enjoyed by millions across the country! For some, drinks with bubbles such as soda don't agree with them, or they simply find it hard to drink. That's where Irn Bru flavoured boba tea comes in!

As Irn Bru has a taste of blackcurrant, raspberry popping juice balls are a great choice to add an extra fruity taste to a common soda flavour! If you wish to try a range of different flavour and topping combinations, you can look towards our 12 drink kits here.



Of all the soda flavours available out there, Vimto is one of the most unique. It has its own brand and flavour, and uses a mix of different berries to make its signature taste. This special flavour isn't lost in bubble tea; drinking the tea-based beverage just give it a smooth, un-fizzy kick!

Any berry-flavoured toppings would work perfectly with Vimto, such as cherry popping juice balls and strawberry jelly. If you're looking for something different, why not try some colourful tapioca pearls? Made from tapioca starch, the pearls are chewy and add to the texture of the drink.
