A NEW bubble tea shop in Taunton town centre proved popular at the weekend.

Customers were spotted queuing outside the new business Bobaichha Bubble Tea in High Street to get a refreshing cuppa with a difference.

The shop is located right next door to the Mr Miles Tea Room.

Bubble tea is a Taiwanese recipe that is created by blending tea with milk, fruit and fruit juices, then adding tapioca pearls and shaking vigorously.

It took off in the 1980s and has more recently become popular in this country.

At least two other locations in Taunton serve it up.

Bobaichha Bubble Tea is a welcome addition to High Street.

The Handmade Boutique hand made craft gift shop recently opened on the other side of Mr Miles.
