I love bubble tea. I think it has something to do with my inner child delighting in devouring food that grosses other people out. Or maybe I just like drinking neon colored liquid that looks like it shouldn’t be ingested by anything—especially a person. Bubble tea just seems to be one of those things you either love with a passion or hate with the fiery vengeance of a thousand suns. Personally, I am a huge fan of bubble tea and it’s delightful chunkiness, so you can imagine I the joy I felt when I heard that State College was getting it’s very own bubble tea shop: Tea-Time.
