Tempo Tea Bar

83 Queen Street | Glasgow G1 3DA

With its bright coloured walls lined with personalised post-it notes and kitschy paraphernalia, Queen Street's Tempo Tea Bar doesn't seem entirely like it belongs in the real world. As one of its smiling staff whips you up a drink that originated in Taiwan and tastes like cookies and cream, the feeling that the whole store wandered out of a too-cute-for-reality indie film is only increased.

But bubble tea is real, Tempo Tea Bar is real and we're all the better for it.

For those who've remained unaware of the new big thing in the world of things people carry around in plastic cups (and seriously who are you, do you not have Buzzfeed?) here's a quick rundown - bubble tea is a tea drink containing chewy tapoica balls which is then mixed up with fruit or milk to produce a cup of frothy deliciousness that can be flavoured in a myriad of different ways. Aware that they'll be catering to a lot of bubble tea virgins, Tempo has a helpful wall-chart explaining the different ingredients that can be combined to make up a custom shake while also offering a few standards guarenteed to hit the spot.
