What is Fruit Bubble Tea

Fruit bubble tea is a beverage made by mixing various tea soups with fresh fruit, fruit jam, and fruit juice. Jasmine green tea is one of the most frequently-used in fruit bubble tea, as its light and refreshing floral aroma complements the fragrance of many fruits. The light color of jasmine green tea soup also allows the colors of the fruits to shine through. Its delicate and subtle flavor does not overpower the fruits, ensuring a harmonious mixed beverage. Besides, light-roasted Oolong tea, such as Four Season Oolong, Tie Guan Yin Oolong, Dong Ding Oolong, etc., are also used.

There are generally two methods for making fruit bubble tea: hand-shaken and slush fruit bubble tea series. Hand-shaken fruit bubble tea involves muddling the fruit in a cocktail shaker, then adding the tea, syrup, and ice cubes before shaking. Slush fruit bubble tea is made by combining fruit (fresh or juice/jam) with tea, syrup, and ice cubes, then placing the mixture inside the blender to make a cup of slush.
Fruit bubble teas can be made in the below variations; Tea soup and fresh fruit, which retains the original flavor and texture of the tea while enhancing the freshness of the beverage. Tea soup and frozen fruit juice, which maintains a flavor and texture similar to that of fresh fruit while ensuring a consistent taste and reducing fruit preparation work and waste. Tea soup and fruit jam, which increases the richness of the beverage and lowers the cost, but may overpower the flavor and texture of the tea.
