Our group is making sustainable boba tea, which is normal boba tea served with a edible sugar straw in a reusable mason jar. Our plan is to sell one tea for 30RMB and give a refund of 3RMB back if customers want to return the jar.
When I saw the edible straws made by Loliware, I thought that we should use a similar idea and make edible sugar straws instead of using plastic or paper straws..
Our ideal customer can be anyone who likes drinking boba tea and is interested in the idea of sugar straws. Most people we interviewed said that if we used a candy with a flavor that’s compilable with the tea (White Sugar, Caramel, Maple Syrup, etc), they would buy it, regardless of age or gender. Knowing that as long as the success of the straws will play a big part of our business, we need to make them perfect to attract more and more customers.
