The Mysterious Origins of Bubble Tea

One thing you can't deny about bubble tea is it's ever increasing popularity. Something that's not clear - apparently - is exactly how, when and with whom it originated.

Tu Tsung-ho, owner of Taiwan's Hanlin Tea Room, claims to be the originator of bubble tea, but a District Court ruling there says that's not the case. Liu Han-chieh, owner of Chun Shui Tang Cultural Tea House, in Taiwan, is also laying claim to being the originator of bubble tea - claiming to have come up with the concept as early as 1984.
