DOES BUBBLE TEA HAVE PROTEIN?
Ahhh, the great question - does bubble tea have protein? Because how much and if so, can I drink it daily? 😂
This incredible drink originated in Taiwan back in the 1980s. With a blend of tea, milk, and chewy tapioca pearls, it's become a global sensation, a culture in itself - with boba tea shops popping up everywhere (especially here in Melbourne! You'll find one on every corner in the city, I love it!).
One of the reasons we started Far East Alchemy was that we realised that bubble tea alone, isn't the best in terms of nutrition. Especially if you want to consume it regularly (which by the way - 100% your prerogative, we don't shame here! But the facts are facts.)
In answer to your question - technically, yes. Bubble tea DOES have protein in it, but mostly from the milk content. But just like how different food serve different nutritional purposes, you wouldn't be relying on your bubble tea to be a main source of protein; that's what your main meals are for.
But with Far East Alchemy Bubble Tea Protein, your mid-morning coffee / snack / break could taste just like a real boba from the shops, but packed with the optimum nutrition of a high quality protein shake. Perfect for those who can't stand the taste of regular protein but want to increase their intake.

INGREDIENTS IN OUR PROTEIN POWDERS
Aside from tasting absoutely delicious, our protein powders have been carefully formulated to be the perfect balance of premium ingredients and offer a nutritionally packed beverage (best taste and value per scoop).
Australian and New Zealand Grass-Fed Whey
Premium Australian and New Zealand grass-fed whey protein stands out for its superior taste profile, high-quality protein content, complete amino acid profile, and enhanced digestibility, making it ideal for muscle repair and growth while being easier on the stomach compared to lower quality whey.
It also contains higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, contributing positively to overall health. Sourced from pasture-raised cows, it promotes sustainable farming practices and supports animal welfare standards.
Not everyone is gifted with the ability to consume and digest dairy. In fact, a large majority of the Asian population cannot digest dairy. With our added lactase enzymes, ANYONE can enjoy premium Boba Tea Protein. No toilet troubles, no worries.
Premium Tea Powders
Our crowd favourite, Matcha Latte Protein, is constantly selling out. We think it's because of the authentic and strong matcha flavour that comes from the ceremonial grade matcha powder, sourced direct from Shizuoka, Japan in our formula. You can also have it hot, making it taste just like a matcha latte from the cafe, only packed with protein!
High Quality Flavouring
Combined with high quality flavouring, sourced both locally in Australia and from Taiwan, our protein powders are guaranteed to taste incredible.
Our Mango Protein uses 100% Australian Kensington Pride Mango Puree Powder which gives this formula an original taste of Aussie Mangoes.
Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
Pink Himalayan sea salt is special because it's packed with minerals like calcium, potassium, magnesium, and iron. These minerals help keep your body balanced, hydrated, and your muscles working smoothly.
Sucralose is a sweetener that gives you the taste of sugar without the calories. It's great if you're watching your nutrition or have diabetes. Plus, sucralose is non-cariogenic, meaning it doesn't contribute to tooth decay.
While some controversy exists regarding its safety, numerous studies have deemed sucralose perfectly safe for consumption within acceptable daily intake levels and only very small amounts are used to enhance our formulas. It's sweetness without the guilt!
No thickeners or fillers
You won't find any added sugars, creamers, thickeners or fillers in our protein. All of its deliciously creamy texture comes from the ingredients themselves. By keeping the ingredients simple and pure, you get a product that prioritises protein content without unnecessary additives.
This means you're getting a more concentrated dose of protein per serving, which is crucial for muscle repair and growth, especially after workouts. Additionally, without fillers or thickeners, the powder is easier to digest, reducing the risk of bloating or digestive discomfort.
Now if you REALLY want to take it to the next level of tasting like the real thing from the boba shop, then pick up one of our Instant Brown Sugar Boba Sachets. They take 30 seconds to heat up. Just pop it in the microwave, heat, then pour into your preferred drinking vessel.
We're passionate about creating protein that isn't just protein; it's an experience, like your morning coffee, an iconic part of your day that helps you get through the challenges; that fuels your body and soul.
