Dublin’s First Bubble Tea Room Has Landed And It Looks Pretty Swanky

Éadaoin Fitzmaurice

It seems that Asian food trends are ever-growing in Ireland.

First we saw sushi, then ramen followed by bubble waffles. The latest trend among this popular list is bubble tea.

So what is bubble tea, you ask?

It’s Taiwanese tea-based drink containing flavoured milk and sugar that includes toppings, such as chewy tapioca balls, popping boba, fruit jelly, grass jelly, agar jelly, and puddings.

It’s pretty bizarre looking but by gums, it’s tasty.

Over the last while, there have been a few small bubble tea stalls and recently, the very first bubble tea room opened in Dublin.

Say hello to Chew Brew!

Chew Brew specialises in bubble tea, ice tea, iced coffee, matcha tea, choux balls and ice cream.

They’ve got all the traditional flavours (a shit tonne of matcha) and then some unique, drool-worthy mixtures for the adventurous palette.

Toffee popcorn flavour is our top pick this week.

This decadent treat includes actual toffee popcorn, cream and tapioca pearls.

It’s something a little different from your usual coffee shop haunts and the venue is really fab. It’s a chill spot, everything about it is Instagram goals and of course, the tea is proper delish.

Just look at it, a bloggers dream shoot location:

We can’t wait to head over, sip some sweet tea and take some stunning pics!
