Japan is home to one of the most exciting cafe scenes, and is well-known for being so obsessed with bubble tea that they are even having their beer with tapioca pearls.
MASHOLA is a cafe that opened just last April, and has quickly overtaken many Japanese girls’ Instagram since then. It comes with Insta-worthy decor that you’ll definitely want to snap a photo with, and also serves gorgeous bubble tea that looks great on your feed.
Located in Kyoto, MASHOLA is so well-known in Japan that it attracts a steady stream of locals and tourists every day. Its interior design theme is a bathroom, so you will find bathtubs, washbasins, and also classic neon signs for you to take your #OOTD shots.
Aside from the decor, what really draws the crowds to MASHOLA are the beautiful ombre Snow Bottles! There are a variety of flavours to choose from, and each Snow Bottle differs in terms of their colours and fruits used. The drinks look just like the milky way when you shake and mix the coloured layers – in fact, you are encouraged to mix them well so that you get an even prettier colour gradient!
Paired with a zesty slice of lemon and a cool colour combination, this drink already gives us the summer vibes. Shake well and you will get a sublime shade of blue that is way too pretty to resist.
These colours remind us of emerald waters and white sandy beaches – we can’t bear to drink this alluring work of art!
#ローズピーチティー (Rose Peach Tea)
Most girls can’t say no to pink ombre, and neither can we! This stunning tea comes in a refreshing rose and peach flavour, and even features pink rose petals for a truly aesthetic beverage.
#タピオカミルクティー (Tapioca Milk Tea)
Of course, for those who only drink the OG bubble tea, you’ll be mesmerised by this tapioca milk tea that looks extra magical.
Besides its dreamy concoctions, Mashola is also famous for its lattes and boba egg tarts. Be sure to leave some space in your stomach for them – we’re sure you will!
