Trends come and go, but if there’s a food fad that’s here to stay, it’s no doubt the bubble tea craze. With new bubble tea joints bubbling up on our shores every other day, it’s only a matter of time before we get an entire exhibition dedicated to these pearly delights. BBT enthusiasts rejoice: you can now get your boba fix at the Bubble Tea Factory, an immersive pop-up exhibition that will be taking place from 19 October to 18 December 2019 right at the heart of Orchard Road.
Touted as the first of its kind in Southeast Asia, this 7,000 sq ft pastel wonderland will be home to 10 multi-sensory installations inspired by the nation’s most-loved beverage. Just imagine stepping into an infinite galaxy of pearls, where a galore of Instagram-worthy photo ops awaits.
If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like taking a dip in a massive pit of taro pearls, you’re guaranteed to have a ball of a time in the Pearl Pit.
Tired of splashing around? Get an IV drip of bubble tea for that 100% sugar level energy boost, or simply chill under larger-than-life boba trees at the Blue Coral Utapioca. After getting your ‘gram on at the various photo spots, channel your inner Miley and swing your way out atop a giant pearl – ‘Wrecking Ball’ style.
That’s not all; visitors will be given a Boba Booster Pack upon entry consisting of limited edition collectible cards with fun, interactive challenges that you can complete during your bubble tea adventure. At the end of your journey, you’ll be treated to free cups of bubble tea along with a plethora of boba snacks to satisfy your cravings – so be sure to come thirsty!
