Bubble Tea is the name given to the wide variety of refreshing flavoured fruit teas and milk teas served ice cold or piping hot with cherry natural tapioca balls that you suck up through a big fat straw! Yum – It’s like a quirky snack and drink in one! The tapioca balls are sometimes referred to as ‘Pearls’ or ‘Boba’, which some people say over time has evolved in to the word ‘Bubble’ – Isn’t it interesting how language can do that? However the true origins of the name come from the small floating bubbles that are created by the vigorous shaking involved in making Bubble tea. We have a specialist shaking machine that times this process to perfection! Here is an Exclusive Interview with Bubbles Founder Adnan Sarkar.



1. What made you start up this unique venture? Any Specific reason for this name?
When we entered the market, we realised that there was a huge gap for ‘healthy junkfood’ or even healthy junk beverages. We felt that this space could be tapped and some healthy junk that is also tasty can be introduced. That is the reason we came up with the term ‘Doctor’ which is gives out a sensible image and the term ‘bubbles’ which gives a careless picture. Hence the name Dr. Bubbles!

2. Who is Your target audience?
We are looking at a large target audience and do not want to limit ourselves to a specific category. We want to cater to everyone from teenagers to college goers to even corporates. Basically, the idea is to provide to all kinds of people who want to have fun with health food.

3. What’s the idea or story behind the venture? How did it come to an existence? What motivated you to start this own venture?
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. I myself come from the hospitality background. I witnessed the craze for Bubble Tea on one of my trips to South East Asia and at that time I felt that Mumbai may be game for this new drink. This came as an idea to me and my team and I have since grown from that to where we are now. Today, Dr Bubbles has a huge fan following especially since we have made sure that the authentic Taiwanese Bubble Tea was brought to Mumbai only after back-breaking research and thorough analysis.
