Bubble Tea Craze in Chicagoland

Bubble tea is a unique treat in that is both a drink and a snack at the same time. There is no other drink that can be compared to bubble tea. Finding its origins in Taiwan, bubble tea has become widely popular worldwide. In fact, it has become a sort of craze in Chicagoland.
