The Asian-inspired drink made of tea, milk and chewy tapioca balls has proved to be a huge hit with all ages, and now, one boba tea company has given the drink a health-conscious twist.
Named after one of their signature ingredients, original organic honey boba, Bubble Bee offers premium tapioca pearls soaked in organic raw honey.
The local tea connoisseurs say they use USDA Organic loose-leaf teas as the base of all of their drinks, as well as USDA Organic Milks and USDA organic honey, making the tea shop the first and only of its kind in Arizona and what the company says sets them apart from others.
Bubble Bee also offers organic milk and milk substitutes in their drinks, such as organic almond, soy and coconut milks. The shop makes their creamy drinks with a non-dairy cream and their fruit teas are flavored with purees made of real crushed fruit, which the company makes themselves.
In addition, the company says that their house-made boba has all the benefits of the organic raw honey that it’s soaked in — stating such benefits as being loaded with vitamins, nutrients and enzymes as well as having powerful antioxidant properties.
For customers with special dietary restrictions, drinks can be modified to cater to the dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan and more. Customers can request coconut milk and non-dairy cream, as well as stevia, blue agave, or raw honey sweetened drinks and 0-calorie drinks.
Along with over 70 fully customize-able drinks on their menu, the tea company has released its own line of USDA Organic Loose-Leaf teas that can be purchased in stores or online.
Bubble Bee has three locations: in Scottsdale Quarter, SanTan Village in Gilbert and Arizona Mills in Tempe.
