The bubble tea ban last year during the Circuit Breaker was a dark period for Singapore.

Many people had clamoured to get their final cup of bubble tea when the government announced the temporary closure of all standalone F&B outlets, resulting in long queues, tension, and even fights.

While bubble tea stores are still allowed to operate in Phase 2 (Heightened Alert), some brands like LiHo and Koi The have decided to once again shutter a few of their stores till further notice.
