A special guest blog today from Mike: An avid tea connoisseur and the founder of BubbleTeaology. Let us know at if you have something te(a)riffic to share with us and we can feature you too 

Tea is truly a remarkable beverage and can be enjoyed in a variety of different ways. From Gong Fu Tea for the serious tea drinker to Bubble Tea for the younger generation and everything in between.  One of the most fascinating things about tea is that it continues to evolve and everyday there are new delicious kinds of tea to try!

One of the most interesting and delicious combinations is Matcha Bubble Tea.  Matcha is made by a special process of grinding top quality tea leaves into a fine powder and has roots in Japan dating back over 800 years.  Bubble tea was invented in Taiwan during the 1980's and is more of a fun drink that is now enjoyed by people all over the world.
