Though Vivi Bubble Tea was founded in 2007, the concept of bubble tea is not new. The first known bubble tea drink was a concoction of hot Taiwanese black tea, tapioca pearls, or honey. Bubble tea is now commonly served cold. The tapioca pearls that distinguish bubble tea were originally made from the starch of cassava, a tropical shrub known for its starchy roots that were introduced to Taiwan from South America during Japanese colonial rule. These were quickly replaced by larger pearls. Since the Dutch colonization of Taiwan in 1624–1662, milk and sugar have been added to tea in Taiwan.
For the discovery of bubble tea, there are two competing stories. Bubble tea, according to the Hanlin Tea Room in Tainan, was invented in 1986 when teahouse owner Tu Tsong-he was inspired by white tapioca balls he saw in the local market of Ah-bo-lieu. He later brewed tea from these traditional Taiwanese snacks. As a result, pearl tea was born.
The Chun Shui Tang tea room in Taichung also claims to have invented bubble tea. Liu Han-Chieh, the company's founder, began serving Chinese tea cold after noticing coffee being served cold in Japan during a visit in the 1980s. His business grew as a result of the new way of serving tea, and several tea chains sprang up. Lin Hsiu Hui, the company's product development manager, claims she invented bubble tea in 1988 when she poured tapioca balls into her tea and encouraged others to drink it during a staff meeting.
Bubble tea's ever-increasing popularity spread throughout East and Southeast Asia in the 1990s. The bubble tea trend spread quickly among young people in places like Hong Kong, Mainland China, Japan, Vietnam, and Singapore.
