Bubble tea has taken the world – and Southampton – by storm.

Several bubble tea shops have been popping up across the city in recent years as popularity soars.

A Taiwanese recipe, the well-loved drink is made by blending tea with milk, fruit, or fruit juices, before adding tapioca pearls.

Here are three places to get your bubble tea fix in Southampton.
