What is milk tea?
Milk tea is tea with milk added in the technical sense, but the milk tea we make is a nod to the popular sweetened beverage that originated in the bubble tea cafes of Taiwan.
What is Twrl Milk Tea?
Twrl Milk Tea is a premium, plant-based version of a cafe milk tea that’s ready to enjoy anywhere you are. Using organic fair-trade teas, pea milk and low-glycemic sugars, our obsession is creating a healthy milk tea you can drink without guilt!
What does Twrl mean?
The name Twrl Milk Tea was inspired by an old Chinese legend about the first pot of tea.
Legend has it that while the Ming Emperor of China was on his daily walk, a few leaves “twirling” in the breeze suddenly fell into his cup of hot water.
The experience sparked the idea to brew the leaves, and so tea was born.
"Twrl" evokes this mingling of flavors; blending age-old tea traditions with new canning technologies and plant-based ingredients to satisfy today’s tastes.
Why is Twrl Milk Tea better than regular milk tea?
Traditional milk tea from a cafe is loaded with sugar--up to 60g of sugar in a single serving! Many use tea powders or non-organic tea. And almost all are full of bloat-inducing dairy.
Each 7.5 oz can of Twrl Milk Tea contains only 7 grams of sugar and fewer than 50 calories. Our delicious flavors combine antioxidant-rich, traditionally-grown tea with plant-based milk that’s naturally low in carbs and sugar.

Is milk tea the same thing as "boba" or "bubble tea"?
Many people call milk tea “boba” because they order it with “boba” (tapioca balls or bubbles). However, milk tea can be enjoyed without toppings!
