Many people know and love bubble tea as a refreshing, texture-rich beverage and Japan's FamilyMart is offering consumers something new to try with frozen bubble tea this summer. The convenience store chain is now offering a tapioca tea latte that's served like a shaved ice snack consisting of tapioca balls in a milk tea ice-filled cup and milk-flavored ice cream at its center.

This cooling way for people to enjoy bubble tea offers all the texture that people love, plus the novelty of shaved ice. Already, the unique summer treat is proving to be very popular with consumers in the region, as FamilyMart stores have quickly sold out of the product and the popular frozen bubble tea snack is hard to come by.
