Bonkers new selfie trend sees women balance bubble tea on their boobs

WOMEN around the world have started balancing cups of bubble tea on their boobs.

Starting in Japan, the bonkers trend was created when one model shared a video of herself drinking the tea "hands-free" – and now other fans have started embracing the trend, too.

The new habit has received so much attention, it's even got its own hashtag, which translates to "hands-free tapioca".

Hundreds of women have taken to Instagram to share their own images, with one person even driving while trying to complete the challenge.

Some are getting on with their working day while balancing the tea on their boobs, while hundreds can be seen texting or reading.

Now, Manga artists have also started creating their own interpretations of the trend, too, with several taking to social media to show off their designs.

One woman in the UK has also had a go at the trend, posting a video on social media of her efforts.

And although the trend was initially started by women, some men are also trying to get involved, posting their own interpretations of the balancing act.

One used the help of a hat to balance his drink while another strapped his with a seat belt.

According to Asia One, the trend has also spread to Taiwan and Thailand.

While the drink is incredibly popular around the world, one schoolgirl had a terrifying experience after doctors found 100 bubble tea balls trapped in her body.

The 14-year-old had been taken to hospital with horrific constipation after her stomach and intestines were full of starchy bubble tea balls.

What is bubble tea?

  • Bubble tea is a Taiwanese recipe made by blending tea with milk, fruit, fruit juice and tapioca pearls (aka the bubbles) that sit at the bottom.
  • The pearls have a chewy consistency and come in different flavours.
  • It can be enjoyed hot or cold and is served with a fat straw so the bubbles can be chewed as you drink.
  • It’s called bubble tea both because of the tapioca balls, and the floating “bubbles” created while it's blending.
