Here are all the drinks you can try with Vancouver's first-ever Bubble Tea Passport

A variety of special drinks and deals will be available at participating vendors for two weeks this summer
The Metro Vancouver Bubble Tea Passport gives fans access to special drinks and deals between August 1 to 14.

The Metro Vancouver Bubble Tea Passport, a self-guided two-week festival, will give bubble tea fans special access to limited-edition drinks and promotions from August 1 to 14, 2023.

Passports for the inaugural event for bubble tea devotees are now on sale for $6. 

The Bubble Tea Passports can be purchased while supplies last from the following locations:

You can purchase the passport and claim $1 off 14 limited edition menu offerings from August 1 to 14 while supplies last; over 20 BOGO drink deals at select vendors August 1 to October 31; and a two-month Supper Club membership.

The Bubble Tea Passport is the creation of local food fan Laura Wong-Thompson, who also set up last year's debut Croissant Crawl.

The limited edition vendor lineup celebrates bubble tea drinks and more. Included are desserts with tapioca pearls (Chez Christophe’s Boba Croissant Cube available August 1 to 7; and Forage’s Hong Kong Milk Tea Cream Puff). Additionally, Japanese (Fufu Cafe) and Filipino vendors (The Filipino Noodle Joint; Kulinarya Filipino Eatery; Pampanga’s Cuisine) will be offering options with tapioca and sago pearls. Limited vegan drink options are available.
