BUBBLE Tea – also known as Boba tea – is a popular drink worldwide that originated in Taiwan in the early 1980s. It is a drink usually made from a choice of black, green or oolong tea as its base with a variety of flavours and toppings.
There’s a misconception that Bubble Tea gets its name from the tapioca pearls that are usually in the bottom of the container (which can usually be switched out for jelly, pudding and other toppings). It actually gets the name from the foamy bubbles when you shake the drink.
I’m sure the question is running through your mind, ‘what does bubble tea have to do with gaming?’, besides it being a quite popular drink among gamers.
Bethesda ANZ has partnered with Menulog & Sharetea for a little crossover with The Elder Scrolls Online & Bubble Tea as part of The Elder Scrolls Online Free Play Event happening from August 17 to the 29th.
