In an effort to expand beyond coffee and cold brew, Caribou Coffee has announced that it will now begin serving a selection of matcha and bubble drinks.
Available just in time for summer, Caribou Coffee is now offering both matcha teas and blended bubble beverages. The new bubble drinks are similar to boba tea in taste, however the bubbles consist of chewy, coconut jellies flavored with caramel, instead of the more traditional tapioca pearls. As a result, the bubbles do not pop the same way they do in boba tea. The bubble beverages also come in more unique varieties such as Caramel Cooler, Raspberry Green Tea, and Matcha Tea Cooler.
But the Asian culinary influence just doesn't end with bubbles. Caribou Coffee is also serving up a Matcha Tea Cooler with Bubbles and a Matcha Vanilla Tea Latte, both made with powdered green tea from Japan.
