Sabotai bubble tea in Zurich ~

I'm finally revealing my new part-time job:
I'm working for the first Bubble Tea shop in Zurich called Sabotai.
The first opening was two weeks ago (March 31st) and we were busy (& quite nervously) serving customers. By now I've gotten used to the work place and feel super at ease.

Most customers are somehow interested in Asia(n culture), we have many Chinese (& all confirmed that they're super happy to finally have a Bubble Tea store in Zurich) and of course other Asians, Swiss Kpop fans, Asian-fashion interested (I've spotted a Lolita and some Gyaru) and mainly a quite young customer base. Of course there are some curious passersby who don't know Bubble Tea at all. We are zealous about introducing everyone to our concept and let our customers have a good time. ^^


The store concept itself is pretty fresh and young, I guess there is still lots of improvement left but our bosses are trying hard and are open for concrit. ^_^ As for my co-workers, everyone is friendly and nice and I have a blast working with them. During my work shifts I can even play my own favourite music lists, so if you happen to come by when I'm working you'll be welcomed with Cpop and Kpop music, beware! =P

I'm SO happy to be able to take part in this Swiss Bubble Tea revolution and hope to make friends with many of our customers! If you happen to read this blog and live near Zurich, don't hesitate to come by and find me or one of my nice co-workers for a yummy Bubble Tea session.

Here's a short (German) web report about the making of Bubble Tea in our store. I'm in it, commenting about how to combine Popping Boba and introducing one of our top drinks. ^^
