Taiwanese Bubble Tea Festival
Time Out says
In 2017, NYC enjoyed its first ever bubble tea festival in Times Square, with old fans and new converts slurping down endless varieties of the delicious tapioca drink. The festival was a hit, as you can imagine: Who doesn't love gummy boba balls, sweet tea and fabulously colorful straws? Now, in true 2018 fashion, the Taiwanese Collective is going pop-up with a three-day immersive fest held in Soho.
Dig into Taiwan's signature drink among giant-size, Instagram-ready installations, including massive boba pearls, a bubble teal ball pool and a tea balloon. Of course, the tasting room beckons, and packs plenty of information on the drink's history from Taiwan to just about everywhere. In the lab, you can create your own tapioca experiment. Finally, you can load your cup with as many bobas as you'd like, and nobody can tell you it's in bad taste.
The festival goes down at 107 Grand Street.
