Last month, the New York Times published an
article calling tapioca pearls "blobs" and referred to bubble tea as "exotic." Readers sounded off, and the Times revised their piece, but this much was clear: despite the proliferation of bubble tea beyond Chinatown, Flushing, and Sunset Park, there are still people out there who know nothing about Taiwan’s "National drink."
Let’s fix that, and help bring bubble tea to the crossroads of the world: Times Square. In the first ever NYC bubble tea festival on Sunday, September 24th, a stretch of Broadway right above Times Square will be transformed into a one-of-a-kind festival.
Buy a ticket below or day of (while supplies last) and you’ll be able to sample cups of bubble tea from major players and boutiques in the bubble tea business. Additional drinks will be available for purchase, and also come out for:
* Giant Bubble Tea Cup
* Night Market Style Food
* Hakka Pestle Tea Experience
* Creative Market featuring Arts & Crafts from Taiwan and local artists
* Kids Craft Workshop
Help us bring bubble tea and Taiwan to the world, and show everyone that the drink we love is much more than just blobs!
Event Location: Broadway between 51 st and 52 st, New York, NY (Take BDE to 7 Ave or ACE12 to 50 St)
Event Date & Time: September 24th, 2017. 11AM - 5PM.
