      The bubble tea or ‘Boba’ phenomenon has arrived in Solihull, and it has seen ‘crazy’ queues of customers craving the Taiwanese treat. Bubble CiTea, a locally owned brand with stores across the UK, has opened its newest store in Touchwood shopping center in Solihull town centre.

      And Solihull manager Nuno Furtado told us that the queues of customers, especially on Saturdays, have been “crazy”. Bubble tea consists of tea accompanied by chewy tapioca balls (“boba” or “pearls”), but can also be made with other ingredients.

      The drink originated in Taiwan in the 1980s and has gained legions of fans from the United States to Australia. Now, bubble tea shops are popping up on Britain’s high streets, and Solihull customers have flocked to Bubble CiTea to try the traditional drink with a unique twist.

      Speaking against a backdrop of jars brimming with pearls, manager Nuno Furtado, 21, told BirminghamLive: “Saturdays especially, it’s very busy, the queues get crazy. It’s a bit hard to manage on Saturdays!

      “It’s something new, we’re the only ones here who make it. The most popular is the rainbow bubble mango fruit tea or brown sugar milk tea, but you can mix many flavors and make really delicious drinks.

      “A lot of people ask what it is, recommendations, what it’s all made of, ask questions and then want to try it.”
