Bubble drinks can be refreshing thirst quenchers, especially for those with a sweet tooth. Anyone who is kind of hungry will also find satisfaction from chewing the bubbles. 

There are many choices of franchises selling this type of beverage in the capital city. Below are some of the options that you can try. 

KOI Café

Originating in Taiwan and open since 2006, this franchise currently has over 45 branches worldwide including Singapore, Macau, Cambodia and Vietnam. In Indonesia, KOI Café offers choices of tea, milk tea, bubble, macchiato and café with a starting price of Rp 16,000 (US$1.20). Its signature beverages include café macchiato and mango green tea. 

According to information on its official website, the brand will soon provide an online shop for those unable to visit one of its five stores in Greater Jakarta.

Comebuy

Also originating in Taiwan, this franchise highlights freshly brewed tea from around the world including Taiwan's own Rose Puer, Ceylon black tea and Sri Lanka Uva black tea. Also a must-try is purple rice matcha and yogurt green tea; the latter is particularly interesting due to its rather bitter yet refreshing yogurt flavor.

The price of the products starts at Rp 18,000.

Sharetea

Established in Taiwan in 1992, Sharetea reportedly has over 180 stores worldwide including in the US, Australia and United Arab Emirates. In the archipelago, its first arrived in South Jakarta's Plaza Semanggi in 2012.

Known for having mildly-sweet bubbles, the franchise's popular items include the rock salt cheese series, kiwi fruit juice with Yakult, and frozen caramel with taro pudding. The prices start at Rp 18,000. 

Fat Straw

Bored with the same old size of plastic beverage cup? Fat Straw offers a unique type of cup that is rather short yet larger in diameter. 

For first-timers, opt for the ice-milk drink with honey boba or the slightly sour selections of yoghurt drinks. Prices start at Rp 19,000. 

CoCo 

Decorated in bright orange, this franchise arguably aims to spread happiness among its patrons through its colorful ambience as well as various options of flavors.

CoCo's classic milk tea is a good choice for those wanting nothing more than a simple yet sweetly refreshing beverage. With a starting price of Rp 16,000, other recommended flavors include salty cream and fresh tea mix. (kes)
