About

Hello, and welcome to Bubbletea101!

From humble beginnings in 2013, Bubbletea101 has grown into Taiwan’s premiere English-language blog, with an original focus on Taiwan-related news, reviews and bubble tea commentary.

In early 2016, Bubbletea101 was sold to Taiwanese-Canadian businessman and bubble tea merchant, John Lai. To draw attention back to the blog after months of neglect, Mr Lai hired a team of Taiwan’s finest satire writers and issued them with strict instructions to pivot away from useful information and instead write nothing but nonsense. So far the strategy appears to be working.
