Shoppers have gone into a frenzy after a TikTok video revealed Woolworths now stocks bubble tea kits for just $8.
New Zealand brand Avalanche (best known for its low-sugar hot choc drinks) is behind the new DIY bubble tea range, stocked exclusively at Woolies.
Flavours available include Milky (Original), Strawberry, Peach, Caramel, Brown Sugar, Mango, Matcha and Taro flavours. The popular Taiwanese drink DIY kits contain five servings for $8. Goodbye bubble tea store and hello homemade goodness!
Adelaide food TikToker Brittany Boyle made the public service announcement via a video showing the bubble tea kits in-store at Woolies.
@brittty.bPSA for all my bubble tea lovers 😍 #woolworths #musttry #foryou♬ good 4 u – Tik Toker
The clip also shows each kit comes with five flavouring sachets, ‘tapioca pearls’, and straws.
“Looks like I’m taking a trip to Woolworths in the morning then,” one commenter wrote.
“I’m so mad that it’s 11.45pm now and I have to wait till tomorrow to get some,” another added.
To make bubble tea at home, simply heat the pearls in the microwave, pour them into a cup with ice, mix your tea powder with water, pour over the top, and voila!
Boyle recommends using milk instead of water for the milky teas and soaking the pearls in hot water instead of microwaving them.
In a statement, Woolworths Merchandise Manager, Cormac Deery, said: “We love seeing customers enjoy the new Avalanche bubble tea and sharing their excitement online”.
