No such thing as too much bubble tea.

Good things come in small packages.

That saying does not apply to bubble tea.

Bubble tea tower

On Jan. 31, a cafe in the Philippines called The Brew Project posted a photo of a milk tea tower on their Facebook page:

What sets this apart from any regular milk tea tower is that it is served with tapioca pearls on the side.

You can add as many as you want before pouring yourself a cup of milk tea.

From the looks of it, the bubble tea tower should be enough for about four to six pax.

Seven tea flavours

If you’re not one for plain old milk tea, The Brew Project offers seven flavours to choose from.

This includes original milk tea, winter melon milk tea, mango milk tea, English toffee milk tea, tiramisu milk tea, butterscotch milk tea and hazelnut milk tea.

Viral in Asia

The post garnered over 18,000 shares and more than 5,000 comments, with many people viewing the concept as a game-changer.

But at least one comment shared that this isn’t really a new fad.

Given how well-received the bubble tea tower is, it’s no surprise if you spot a bubble tea tower in Singapore soon.

Where to go: Judge Alba St, Poblacion, Koronadal City, South Cotabato, Philippines
