When did Boba Tea come to the valley?
It was 2011, the eleventh of September, I woke up, did my morning route, and headed out to Bhat-Bhateni, Chakrapath.
Everything was, as usual, busy traffic, crowded streets nothing seemed out of the ordinary, but, I noticed something has everything too, mention “A Huge Thing”. So, what was it?……………………………………
A guy named Pasang Lama has introduced a drink called Boba Tea which will eventually become one of the most crazed beverages in the world.
It was already loved around the world and Mr. Lama wanted to share this super delicious beverage customized in so many ways that you may never run out of flavor to drinking.
He has our utmost respect as he not only brought some new recipes, it created a surge of others to approach the business thus raising employment.

They now have several branches, you may visit.
