Luxury tea blender Tealeaves partnered with the St. Regis San Francisco to create the world’s most expensive Bubble tea (Boba). Using the highest quality ingredients, Chef Franck Desplechin from The St. Regis San Francisco is gonna create something unforgettably delicious – “The Boba Tea shake”. The dreamy beverage will include a combination of Indian, Chinese, and Ceylon black tea, blended with the natural oils of lychee and passionfruit for a delicate aroma.
“With this project, we asked ourselves, ‘How would we re-imagine bubble tea with unlimited resources and time?’” Tealeaves CEO Lana Sutherland explained in the release. “The World’s Most Expensive Bubble Tea project isn’t about masking the ordinary with diamond-encrusted straws and gold chalices, but is a challenge for us all to elevate expectations, quality, and the standards of ingredients and techniques, using bubble tea as an example—to ‘shake up the status quo’ and ‘question everything.'”
The drink’s unveiling will take place at San Francisco Design Week (SFDW) June 14-22, 2017. If you can’t make it to San Francisco to taste the Teashake in person, there’s even an entire website devoted to the Teashake. The Lychee Passionfruit Bubble Tea re-make can also be purchased at tealeaves.com for $23.95.
