Bubble tea has been a favorite beverage for people living in East and Southeast Asia since the 1990s. The drink is famous for including bobas, little black pearls made from tapioca that sit at the bottom of the tea. The bobas are sweet, soft, chewy and have a texture similar to that of a gummy bear.
Dulce Nitrogen serves both fruit-based bubble teas and milk-based bubble teas. The bubble tea comes with tapioca boba, but you can decide to get popping pearls as well! The popping peals are juice-filled spheres that burst when you bite into them.
Some flavors for the milk-based tea include:
- Cinnamon Roll
- Cookies and Cream
- Purple Taro
- Green Matcha
For the fruit-based tea, drinks are made from a tea or lemonade base and then sweetened with a fruit flavor. Popular varieties for the fruit-based tea include:
- Passion Fruit
You can even just have honey-sweetened tea if you love the taste of tea itself!
Dulce Nitrogen in Pigeon Forge also serves their popular bubble waffles. Made from a sweet and eggy batter, these waffles have distinctive spherical puffs or “bubbles.” A staple of Hong Kong street food since the 1950s, bubble waffles are crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. The delicious bubble waffles are rolled into a cone and filled with the shop’s famous NitroCream and topped with your choice of toppings!
