Boba tea, also known as bubble tea, is a popular Taiwanese drink that many college students can be spotted enjoying. Middle Tennessee State University students can now go just down the street from campus for some bubble tea at Siri Bubble Tea.
The shop, owned by MTSU Alumni Phairod Hanisiriphaisane, opened Feb. 17.
Currently, they serve a variety of milk and fruit tea flavors, but are hoping to expand their menu in the future.
“We are training staff. Once we get that done, we are going to have some food items,” Hanisiriphaisane said. He hinted at fried ice cream.
The owner had been looking for a place to open for a while and were pleased to find a location near campus. The store is a large space, with plenty of room for studying and meeting with others.
While Siri Bubble Tea has only been open for a week, they are working hard to grow their small business.
Siri Bubble Tea offers a 10% discount to all MTSU students, faculty and alumni.
