As I am a bubble tea fiend, I have tried so many different bubble teas - some spectacular, some rather underwhelming. Tempo Tea Bar is definitely the former: really flavoursome tea and a great variety of toppings. Their popping pearls are a bit smaller but you can mix and match them (unlike Mooboo's for example) so you can have a... More

I've been a fan of this place since it opened, the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the product which they are selling, the drinks are reasonably priced for what you get and they taste amazing! (Banana Berry grove and mango bubbles!) The shop is quirky with a lot going on. The main drawback is the size, it sometimes... More

They offer a wide range of tea options and toppings, which allows me to be experimental everytime I am here, and their quality is always better than ever. The staff are... More

Whenever I visit Glasgow I always make sure to pop in and get one of the mango passion fruit teas with blueberry popping boba... More

This was my first time trying bubble tea. I first became aware of Tempo Bar when I saw their stand at the Silverburn shopping centre. But I didn't have a chance to try it at the time. As I was out for the day in Glasgow, I decided to pop in and give it a try. The choice of flavours... More

My friend introduced me to tempo in early 2014 and I've continued going ever since, I even have a photo on the wall! I love the variety of the teas in here and they are always so refreshing and tasty. My personal favourite is the peach and lychee fruit tea. The tea bar is small but it's always busy. Give... More
