Located next to Cafe Mirror on Washington Street, it is hoped that the bubble tea store will drive more customers into the area.
Vivi Bubble Tea is a Taiwan-based chain that has several stores throughout New York and one in North Quincy. It seems that by choosing to launch their brand in Boston the tea chain is keen to expand. Bristol could be the ideal location for them to test the success of their brand somewhere other than New York. Whilst Boston is no stranger to the bubble tea concept, this will be the first store offering the popular, modern drink in the Bristol area.
Contrary to its name bubble tea doesn't always contain bubbles, it's not always tea either. It is a drink that has either a fruit, milk, or tea base with 'pearls' at the bottom of the cup. These pearls are actually tapioca balls and they are relatively tasteless, although they do take on the flavour of the drink. They are mostly in the drink to add texture.
Interestingly, the drink isn't called bubble tea because of the tapioca balls but because of the way that the milk froths when the drink is shaken. The drink has soared in popularity, thanks to chains like Vivi Bubble Tea bringing the beverage to the people of Brighton and other areas.
Vivi Bubble Tea serves a huge range of different tea to customers. They can enjoy milk-based drinks with flavours such as chocolate, strawberry or Japanese Matcha. They could have a tea-based drink, slush, Yakult or iced-jelly, all in different flavours. There is so much to choose from. The store doesn't just offer teas either, they also offer a selection of food. Customers can enjoy snacks such as popcorn chicken, corn dogs, fried yam or takoyaki.
It really promises to be a store that can offer a destination to refuel for the people of Brighton. Whilst the brand has not yet released any information in regard to their opening date or times that they will be open, the licencing board agenda for the Boston area show that they have applied for a license to operate from 11 am to 2 am.
