The bubble tea bubble in Singapore continues growing. After Ch 8 veteran host Vivian Lai’s Teabrary tea studio opened recently at Esplanade Xchange, the latest BBT brand to set up an outlet here is Daboba, who claims to be the first bubble tea shop to offer honey pearls.

Along with fellow Taiwanese bubble tea imports like Xing Fu Tang and The Alley, Daboba is one of the most popular BBT players in its native Taiwan. It has aggressively expanded its overseas franchise in countries like Malaysia, where it has some 14 outlets that regularly attract long queues. It’s fronted by a cute grizzly bear (Daboba’s Chinese name means ‘Hall of the Black Bear’).
