Ooshi The Bubble Tea World
Ooshi, The Bubble Tea World at 61 Regent Street Cambridge is fast becoming one of the must places to visit in Cambridge. Having opened on 27th. April 2013, Ooshi, as it is known, has become very popular with university students, local inhabitants and tourists alike.

Many tourists stop by to take photographs of our unique bubble tea bar with its bright colours and unique characters and then cannot resist the pull of the vibrant refreshing bubble tea.

Customers can either take their bubble tea away with them or sit in and enjoy their drink along with a cupcake freshly made by Betty Marshmallow of Ely using quality ingredients including free range eggs, or a Japanese style mochi cake made from glutinous rice.

Customers who sit in often stay for long periods enjoying the unique ambience and then come back for more later in the day. Julie Sandford-Cooke recently tweeted on Twitter that she and her friend, neither of whom had tried bubble tea previously, thought Ooshi was so good that they came back twice on the same day!! They are now trying to find an excuse to revisit Cambridge simply to drink more Ooshi bubble tea. Their reaction is not unique and we are now building up a regular clientele.

Our bar is furnished with brightly coloured seating and tables, uniquely patterned flooring and interesting wall pictures. The wall picture of Cambridge, Ooshi style, is particularly interesting with its take on the 1958 car on the roof of Cambridge University's Senate House prank; the Bridge of Sighs and many more Cambridge features.

The Ooshi bar has been put together so professionally and the Ooshi experience is so unique that many think that Ooshi is a franchise. It is not. Ooshi is the vision of a local family and is run by them and a group of loyal and dedicated staff who have all been trained as Ooshers. We have no doubt therefore that whatever your previous experience of bubble tea, be it extensive or none, our Ooshers can provide you with a memorable experience.

For those visiting from far afield who want to keep a memory of Ooshi with them we have colourful Ooshi T Shirts, Sweat Shirts and posters available for purchase.

What is bubble tea? Is a question we are often asked. Bubble tea was first developed in Taiwan in the early 1980’s. The exact source is contested but how it was developed is not. Basically a cup of sweet creamy tea was shaken to create the bubbles on the top and then to make it totally unique, pearls of cooked tapioca were added. These pearls have become known as a topping. According to legend a Japanese television company happened to be passing, broadcast this new product and bubble tea started on its journey into the massive worldwide product that it is now.

From these early beginnings bubble tea has been developed using different teas – we use Assam black tea, Oolong tea, and Jasmine green tea. Fruit flavours have also been added to the teas. We have an extensive range of flavours approaching fifty in number from the exotic red bean and buco pandan to strawberry, chocolate and banana. Some are creamy in nature - the creamer we use being lactose free - and some are not. We have developed the non-creamy flavours into our own Joosi’s which are served with ice cubes and Slooshi’s which are blended with crushed ice. However the real development has been in the area of toppings. We still have the original tapioca, which we cook several times a day, but we now have a range of flavoured jellies and Ooballs, which are a jelly sphere with flavoured syrup inside. These are particularly delicious and very popular. Ask one of our Ooshers for the toppings which are available when you visit. It is quite entertaining to see if they remember them all as there is a large variety!!

None of our jellies contain gelatin. The Aloe Vera is actually real Aloe Vera slivers. The jelly in the ooballs is made from seaweed so all of our products are suitable for vegetarians

If you are unsure about which way to go with our bubble tea, discuss your preferences with one of our trained Ooshers and ask for a sample to try. We are very accommodating. Remember however you feel, whatever the weather, we have something for you. Bubble tea can be served hot, cold or very cold.

61 Regent Street is only a short walk from the market square and sits in front of Parker’s Piece. Take this short walk for a unique Ooshi experience. You will not regret it. At the weekend look out for the bubbles floating on the breeze. You will be close to Ooshi, The Bubble Tea World.
