A Fast-Growing Industry

Bubble tea is the drink sensation that’s taken the beverage world by storm. It’s currently a $2 billion industry and is expected to hit $4.3 billion worldwide by 2027.* Gong cha has been instrumental in helping this fan-favorite fare sweep across the world.

Gong cha Mixes Authenticity with a Modern Business Model

The global appeal of Gong cha can be traced back to our start as a local brand in Taiwan—the birthplace of bubble tea. We began innovating from day one, originating the milk foam tea phenomenon and turning bubble tea into a well-loved treat.
