An exciting new concept arrived in Dartford on Saturday with the official opening of a new tea store in Lowfield Street with a twist! Love Bubble Tea is an exciting new brand which the founder Gurjit Randhawa hopes can become a national phenomenon in years to come.

Bubble Tea is the new drink craze sweeping the UK. Originally from Taiwan, it is a cold drink made with tea, sweetened milk or other flavorings, with balls or pearls of tapioca. Alongside the drinks there will also be bubble waffles and ice cream.

The store was opened by the Mayor of Dartford Councillor Paul Cutler and the Leader of Dartford Borough Council Jeremey Kite MBE who attended along with other guest from the local community including KECC CEO Gurvinder Sandher MBE.

Gurjit Randhawa founder of Love Bubble Tea has run the Esquires Coffee in Dartford since 2017 commented “This is a tough time for businesses but we are fully committed to Dartford and passionately believe this is an excellent addition to the town centre and will bring a different vibe to the local drinks and dessert market. I have worked on this concept for a long time and hope this is the start of an exciting new venture not just for us but also Dartford”.

Gurvinder Sandher MBE the CEO of Kent Equality Cohesion Council commented “I am very passionate about supporting local independent businesses and were delighted to assist Gurjit and his team with the launch. It was great to see the Mayor and Council Leader in attendance, it is important in these uncertain economic times we all do what we can to support those new businesses that appeal to our taste.”
