Customers can enjoy them hot or cold, with a choice of vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options.

The sweet taste of the tea paired with the delicious toppings make up the unique taste that bubble tea provides.

Owners Irfan Khan and Ali Zafar said: “We have a combination of 64 mixed drink flavours of tea to choose from and we are constantly developing new flavours. Bubble Tea is an exciting, growing trend amongst all age groups.

“What makes bubble tea appealing and distinguishable is the additional popping balls known as boba which burst in the mouth and releases the flavours.

“Alongside bubble tea we also offer a supplementary product known as bubble waffle. Currently, no one has this product, and we will be its first producers in the area. Bubble waffle is cooked in our secret formula and served with popping balls.”

Bubble T is located on the ground floor of the centre near the escalators, opening seven days a week.
