Can’t get enough of your favourite bubble tea? Think one cup isn’t enough? Well, this new cafe in Penang has got you covered!

Galaxy Tea Bar, located in Nagore Square, Penang, has taken it to the next level by serving their boba in a hot pot! That’s right, talk about a boba-steamboat collab! 

The hot pot comes with all your favourite goodies like tapioca pearls, grass jelly, mango cubes, sago balls, taro balls, and red beans, which are served in your choice of fresh milk or milk tea as the “soup base”. According to Penang Foodie, all the ingredients are imported from Taiwan for that authentic Taiwansese Bubble Milk Tea!

Next, you can choose to have your dessert served hot, where the dish comes with a lit flame in the middle to keep all the yummy-ness warm, OR you can have it icy cold, where the dish comes with dry ice to cool you down in the hot weather. But let’s admit it, we only get desserts with dry ice to take pics for the gram.

According to NextShark, each serving costs RM29.90 and is recommended for two to three persons, but if you’re a bubble tea fanatic, you might just be able to sapu the whole thing by yourself.

Although the idea wasn’t originally from Malaysia, the Galaxy Tea bar has been gaining lots of attention on social media after customers started sharing photos and videos of their experience.
