So, in my previous blog post I mentioned my next post would be about a hot new spot and here it is. (if you haven’t read it yet, go read it now!). Well, if I’m being absolutely honest, this is just one of many new spots I have in store for my followers. It is going to be back to back hot spots until the year ends!
The Bubble Tea Shop is located at the H & H food court,No 18 Blantyre street off Ademola Adetokunbo street, Wuse 2, Abuja Nigeria and it is open from 10am-7:30am on Monday’s to Saturday’s for now. The tea shop has actually been around for over a year now but at a different location. They just officially launched their new store on October 1st 2022. The tea shop specialises in Bubble tea and pastries only.
The tea shop is really beautiful, warm and cozy. The space is very adequately used and effectively fits its purpose. It is decorated with flowers, neon lights and has a mini sitting area and a service counter. The spot is mainly a grab and go spot. However, you can briefly sit and have your drink or share one with a friend. The space can fit a maximum of 6-7 people. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. They seem to also have adequate knowledge of what they serve which is really nice. The space is well lit and very insta friendly.
Initially, I wanted to have bubble tea and cinnamon rolls but the pastries were sold out for the day so I ordered the bubble tea only. I ordered the Regular Matcha milk tea and Small Chocolate Decadence Milk tea.
Regular Matcha milk tea – NGN3,450
I chose the matcha milk tea because I wanted a taste of something different, normally I would play it safe and go for a more familiar flavour but I didn’t this time and I absolutely did not regret it. The matcha milk tea was made with matcha powder, milk and boba balls. It is the best matcha flavoured anything I have ever tried! It tasted almost like a matcha latte but better, it was like a tasty matcha milkshake. I absolutely enjoyed every bit of it. I savoured the entire cup until the last drop and I almost cried when it finished. I will definitely be going back for more. Now for more clarity, matcha is finely grounded powder gotten from green tea leaves. It has several health benefits and is also delicious, depending on your tastes. If you are not a fan of green tea, you probably wouldn’t enjoy this tea. If you’ve never tried matcha before and you’re open to try new things then I totally recommend this because you will enjoy it.
Small Chocolate Decadence Milk tea – NGN3,050
My sister has had a couple of bad boba tea experiences so she decided to play it safe and order something with chocolate since it was our first time at the bubble tea shop. She opted for a small cup as you can see, which she later regretted of course because the tea was so freaking good. It was rich in texture, very creamy and adequately sweet. It was chocolatey but without doing too much. The tea was an absolute delight and it will definitely make it to my favourites list.
This is the full and current menu at the tea shop, it is very affordable and I definitely think you get value for your money. They have quite the variety of milk teas and also fruit teas for my very lactose intolerant people and also people who would just like something different. The best thing about the menu is that it gives you options. You can choose to add toppings/boba and you also choose the kind of boba balls you want for your tea.
TOTAL BILL – NGN6,500 (No VAT or service charge)
The bubble tea shop is definitely a great spot. It is a total 10 if you ask me. Great tea, good service, nice ambience, lovely packaging, peaceful environment, pastries to go and it is very pocket friendly. There aren’t a lot of tea shops in Abuja. This is one of the few and they’ve got everything spot on! I’m definitely going to become a regular at the tea shop because it is accessible and affordable. I look forward to trying more bubble tea flavours.
If you have ever tried out anything from the bubble the shop, do share your opinion.
