Our Story

The yobu journey started in May 2015 with one simple vision. Serve top quality food & drinks of great, authentic taste & creative twists. With most friendly & helpful customer service to make everyone feel at home in a fun & chill environment, that is what we do every day.

What is Bubble Tea?

Bubble tea is a tea-based drink invented in Taiwan in the 80s. Several innovative tea houses there modernised the concept of tea to attract the younger generations. Freshly brewed tea is shaken with ice, with different flavours added. And a wide variety of toppings can be added to bubble tea, making it a unique, fun combination of a tea drink and a snack.  At yobu, we offer over 30 flavours of fruity and milky bubble teas and over 20 topping options, including the classic tapioca balls, flavoured jellies, and the highly popular juice balls. Every cup of yobu bubble tea is made freshly to order with top quality ingredients and lots of love & care. Our bubble tea ingredients are imported directly from Taiwan and therefore 100% authentic.

Bournemouth is the largest resort in Dorset and boasts seven miles of sandy beaches, beautiful parks and gardens, as well as a vast array of shops, restaurants and holiday accommodation to suit all budgets.

There's so much to do here that you'll never be bored. Not to mention the world famous Bournemouth Air Show that comes around towards the end of the summer, accompanied by the night air festival and fireworks display.

I was served by Abby today, who has helped me before and even served me earlier this week. She was friendly and I loved the tea that was made for me by some other staff

Was looking for a coffee shop that stay open till late and I decided to try YOBU. Tea with a difference, that tastes great. The fun thing is that you get to try different teas every time.
