The rising popularity of bubble tea aids in the increased attention of the growing market.

Varieties available in bubble tea such as fruit-flavored, green, jasmine, and black tea also increase its leverage by catering to even lactose-intolerant people thereby boosting the market growth. Many commercial outlets on the rise across the world are launching new flavors and formulations by attracting millennials exclusively. This factor acts as a growth driver for the global market promptly.

The sweeteners added to the bubble tea are honey, syrups, or agave which are a fitting alternative to sugar.
