About This Blend
MAKE THE PERFECT CUP OF TEA
The Birth of a New World-Class Beverage: The Boba Teashake
HOW DO YOU MAKE THE ORDINARY, EXTRAORDINARY?
Called the “Boba Teashake”, the World's Most Expensive Bubble Tea project is a fun, five-star twist to a popular beverage, using the highest quality ingredients possible to create something unforgettably delicious. It's a game of balance and blending—from color + aroma + taste + texture—to let the quality of each ingredient shine where the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts.
Created in honor of the theme for San Francisco Design Week (SFDW) 2017, “Question Everything”. The result is the birth of a new world-class beverage: the Boba Teashake. Shake up the status quo. It’s bubble tea, re-imagined.

Bubble Tea Manifesto
WHAT DO WE MEAN BY "WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE BUBBLE TEA"?
If you came here expecting gold bars and diamond-encrusted chalices, we’re sorry to disappoint you. We’re not about the overindulgent and the exorbitant—especially when the standards of bubble tea, and tea itself, are simply not good enough.
It’s a gilded landscape of which powdered iced tea is the norm. Where backyard growers are trusted, just because they’re small.
We see it all—and make choices, every day, to do things differently. At TEALEAVES, we’re makers. With rigorous product-first beliefs, we blend our teas in small batches by hand. We keep only 1% of the leaves presented to us by the world’s tier-1 gardens. Comparable to how a skilled perfumer creates bouquets of scents, we create eclectic palates through curating quality botanicals, herbs, and fruits. We choose the very best, to make the very best.
We’ve pressed on for the past 20 years and have made like-minded friends along the way. From five-star hotels to Michelin star chefs, we train some of the world’s most discerning palates in the art of tea, because we do things right, and we do it well.
Luxury, to us, isn’t merely about gold, silver, and shiny baubles. It’s about having the luxury of time and the privilege to practice our craft.
We want to share with you what we know—the epitome of blending—by using bubble tea as an example. Optimizing harmony between color + aroma + taste + texture, we challenged ourselves and our expert friends in culinary to reimagine this iconic beverage.
How would it taste with unlimited time and unlimited resources?
We wanted to unearth this common beverage’s true potential to create something unforgettably delicious.
The meaning of “World’s Most Expensive Bubble Tea” is a challenge for us all. It’s not an end destination, but a forever-aspiration.
Let’s up expectations. Let’s up quality.
Let’s up the standards of bubble tea together.
SHAKE UP THE STATUS QUO.
I really wanted to like this tea, the idea of a classy, naturally flavoured bubble tea was a huge appeal. Unfortunately, it seems like the makers of this tea have never had real bubble tea as the result tastes almost soapy to me from the addition of coconut. I can barely even taste the fruit notes due to how overpowering the coconut is for me.
We love this tea! It said in the description that this tea is good for iced bubble tea, we actually made it hot and it is wonderful! It tastes also good with a small drop of honey. It is smooth and flavorful that actually has Lychee flavor! We are picky in teas, and this tea exceeds our expectation. We have many other teas but this one is always our first choice.
Although I'm sure this is meant to be steeped with pre-made black tapioca, it is not clear in the description that the package does not include them.
Dear Elizabeth, Thank you for taking the time to leave your product review. We are most sorry to read of your recent experience with our blend of Lychee Passionfruit Bubble Tea and would love to learn more. A member of our team will be in touch with you very shortly to follow-up on this matter.
