FAQ - Inspire Food Company

Bubble tea is blend of either iced or hot tea shaken or stirred with either fruit or milk. To top it off you can choose to add either tapioca pearls or various flavors of fruit pearls to your drink to make it a bubble tea. Bubble tea can also be made with icecream, mixed with either fruit or syrup.

Bubble tea can be made in a limitless number of variants and the bubbles deliver the  customer a unique experience while also providing a great looking drink. The drink usually served in a tall glass or a plastic takeaway cup. Using an extra wide straw the bubbles can be slurped.

THE INSPIRE FOOD COMPANY consists of two platforms, namely:

You can take a look at our youtube channel. There you can find a number of videos about how to make bubble tea. However, we recommend that you ignore the standard recipes. Because your customers might not like them at all. Invite a group of people, start experimenting and start learning what flavours people like in your country.

Buy an electric cooking plate to cook the tapioca. You can also use a rice cooker. Even if you have little space, you can still cook tapioca!

We have a separate website for wholesale orders. Here, our products are shipped per pallet https://business.inspirefoodcompany.com/

Unfortunately, we do not offer this possibility for our regular webshop. This is only possible for orders placed via our wholesale business.

Our department store for the online shop is in Germany. As a German customer, it is therefore not possible to take advantage of the VAT exemption for orders in the online shop. You can then ask the tax authorities for a VAT refund. 

This is not a problem. VAT is always calculated on the basis of the country to which the goods are shipped. You can reclaim the VAT from your own tax authority. 

If you have entered the number, you can use the VAT exemption provided that you are not a German customer for the online shop. 

Our tapioca bags have an expiry date on them. We recommend that you stick to this. 

We recommend using the tapioca within a few days. This way, you avoid wasting it. Storing it longer will reduce the quality of the tapioca. 

Tapioca is made from cassava. They are chewy balls. It has no strong taste but adds texture to a drink.

We recommend using the tapioca within one day. It is best to store it at room temperature. 

Go to our returns page. Fill in the return form so that your return is registered with us. We will then contact you for the next steps.
