Twrl Milk Tea Launches First Single-Serve, Plant-Based Popping Boba: A Dye-Free Innovation Redefining the At-Home Boba Tea Experience

an Francisco, CA – April 23, 2024Twrl Milk Tea, the pioneering plant-based food and beverage company, proudly announces the launch of its latest innovation, single-serve, dye-free Popping Boba toppings. It comes in three delicious flavors: Honey, Lychee, and Strawberry. This addition marks a significant milestone for the brand, which is known for its commitment to sustainability, health, innovation and the joy of sharing their founders’ Chinese and Taiwanese heritage. The Popping Boba will initially be available on Kickstarter and will launch into Sprouts Farmers Markets nationwide this summer. 

Twrl Milk Tea was founded by entrepreneurs and long-time friends Pauline Ang and Olivia Chen, and since then, it has quickly evolved from being a mission to create a delicious and better-for-you plant-based milk tea to something much more. With a focus on ecologically friendly and health-conscious goods, Twrl Milk Tea has become a leader in the food and beverage business by using sustainably-sourced ingredients from small family farms located in Taiwan, Japan, and China.

With its unique seaweed extract shell, Twrl’s Popping Boba is vegan, gluten-free, and dye-free. It is also the first on the market with single-serve packets. Each packet is conveniently portioned and takes the guesswork out of making the perfect drink or dessert. These juice-filled popping boba toppings burst with juice when bitten into and elevate any ice tea, sparkling water, cocktail, mocktail or dessert.

Twrl's Popping Boba toppings are dye-free and do not use any artificial colors such as Red 3 (banned in California), Red 40, Yellow 5 or Yellow 6 that are often found in candies or sugary drinks. Our Popping Boba shell is made of seaweed extract, is 100% vegan and has a soft, non-chewy texture. No gelatins used. 

 “As part of our effort to bring the cafe-style tea-drinking experience to the home, we are excited to present Popping Boba as a delicious addition to our family of teas and boba toppings.” Co-founders of Twrl Milk Tea Pauline Ang and Olivia Chen remarked, "Our newest Popping Boba embodies our mission to share the flavors of our heritage made with premium ingredients while upholding our commitment to health and sustainability."
