PP Plastic Bubble Tea Cups

PP Plastic Bubble Tea Cups

PP (Polypropolene) is the most common type of plastic cup.  It is recyclable, transparent, lightweight and durable.  It is also much cheaper than other types of cups (PET, PLA).  This makes PP cups the most popular choice for Bubble Tea Shop owners because PP cups can also be customized for a relatively low cost ($0.06/cup).

PP cups are also not all the same.  The two main types of PP cups are Y and YS. Y is the most common type and is lower quality than YS.  Next time you get a plastic cup from a drink shop, look on the bottom to see what it says.  The most common type is Y which is a bit softer than YS.  YS is a middle range cup and is what we use for most of our custom products.

PET plastic cups are also a popular choice but are more expensive than PP cups and usually require a 98mm cup sealer machine.

PP cups are usually 95mm and come in many different sizes with 12oz, 16oz and 24oz being the most common sizes.

Top 5 Popular Bubble Tea Flavors!

Top 5 Popular Bubble Tea Flavors!

most popular bubble tea flavors

One of the most common questions we get asked is “what are the most popular bubble tea flavors?”.   While this does vary from region to region, there are some hands down favorites.

1) Taro Bubble Tea is the most popular flavor.  For many people in the West, Taro Bubble Tea is their first experience with taro.  So what is taro exactly?  Well, taro is tropical root-type plant that is sometimes referred to as an “Asian Potato”.  It is more sweet than a regular potato though.

2) Milk Tea is the 2nd most popular flavor.  You can make milk tea using two different methods.  The first is to use real milk and mix that with black tea.  The second is to use non-dairy creamer or a 3 in 1 milk tea powder.  The 3 in 1 mixtures will contain sugar and flavoring giving more flavor.

3) Honeydew Bubble Tea is the 3rd most popular flavor.  It’s bright green color and sweet tropical flavor makes it a favorite among many bubble tea lovers.

Coconut Bubble Tea comes in at number 4.  Coconut bubble tea is both sweet and tropical which makes it one of the most popular flavors.

Matcha Green Tea is number 5 on the list.  Matcha is finely ground green tea powder of specially grown and processed tea leaves.  The finely ground powder gives matcha a distinctive flavor that some people describe as more “earthy”.  This is because you are tasting every part of the tea because it is ground into such a fine powder.

Bubble tea is quickly becoming one the most sought after drinks in the world.  Bubble tea was invented in Taiwan in the 1980’s and has been spreading around the world ever since.

**Perform this maintenance every 2 weeks to keep your machine in good working order**

Our cup sealer machines all come from Taiwan (where bubble tea was invented) and not from China.  Cheap Chinese machines are all over Amazon and eBay and while their price is lower so is their quality.  Almost half of our customers purchased a knock off sealer first but had it break and then decided to purchase a quality sealer from us.

Buying a quality sealer machine and performing maintenance will keep your machine working for a long time.
