Next week, residents of Vile Parle will have a sweet surprise awaiting them! Dr Bubbles — Chai Specialist, the popular chain that serves the unique Bubble Tea, will have an array of drinks for patrons available at only Rs 10. The special offer will be open on December 13 and 14 at the chain’s exclusive store in Vile Parle.
The Vile Parle store is the latest addition to the repertoire of Dr Bubbles’ stores in Mumbai. Dr Bubbles is credited with bringing authentic Taiwanese Bubble Tea to Mumbai in 2015 by customising the flavour to suit the tastes of Indians. Dr Bubbles made its debut in Mumbai with three stores – one each at Hill Road and Carter Road in Bandra and one at Phoenix Market City, Kurla. But with growing demand, the chain recently launched more stores not just in Mumbai, but across India too. Six stores came up in Mumbai at Kemps Corner, Ghatkopar, Seawoods, Vashi and two outlets in Thane. Meanwhile, three stores were launched in Surat (Vesu, Varacha and Katargram) and one each in Amravati, Nasik and Indore through franchisee route.
Bubble Tea finds its genesis in Taiwan where the drink was invented in the early 1980s. The refreshing flavoured fruit teas and milk teas served with chewy tapioca balls sucked up through a big fat straw became a rage in several Asian countries. Yet, when Bubble Tea first debuted in India, it ended up confusing the palate of Indians who did not respond too well to the drink.
Dr Bubbles changed all of this when a makeover of sorts was given to the drink to cater to Indian tastes by adding fruit jelly and fruit-flavoured poppers to the milk and fruit teas. For ardent tea lovers, Dr Bubbles also introduced a special ‘chai’ flavoured variety. With a ‘base’ of green or black tea, Dr Bubbles’ fruit teas came infused with natural fruit flavourings. The chain soon caught the fancy of Mumbaites who loved to explore the distinct options and flavours of Bubble Tea.
Speaking about the new store in Vile Parle and the special offers on the occasion, Mr. Adnan Sarkar, Founder, Dr. Bubbles said, “On December 13 and 14, our Vile Parle store will have most teas being given away for only Rs 10. We came up with this offer because we wanted to give something special to all our patrons who have given us so much love. We also want more and more people to come taste our authentic beverages and enjoy the unique flavours. We hope our new Vile Parle store receives as much love as all our other stores.”
The special offer is exclusive to the Vile Parle store only and will not be available at the other Dr Bubbles outlets and stores. The brand now also has plans to expand its presence across many states in India and scale up to 100 stores in a year. Hyderabad, Nagpur, Bhopal, Cochin are the upcoming locations.
