珍奶倫敦暴紅 英國老闆變明星

(中央社記者黃貞貞倫敦24日專電)標榜正宗台灣口味的珍珠奶茶在英商引進倫敦後,買氣持續發燒,原料已出現短缺,必須緊急向台灣補貨。經媒體報導後,不少台灣僑胞前往光顧,並搶著和英商創辦人合照。

這家名為Bubbleology的台灣珍珠奶茶專賣店,位在倫敦市中心熱鬧的蘇活區,創辦人阿塞德(Assad Khan)告訴中央社記者,自21日正式對外營業以來,人潮從未間斷,每天賣出500杯以上,銷售速度遠超過他預估的250杯。

他計劃未來9個月再開3家分店,7月份進軍倫敦高級百貨公司,將在美食區販售珍奶,前景大好。



這則新聞,想必大家都有點印象…

因瑞光的未雨綢繆,擔心塑膠杯因此漫延歐洲,

因此有了下面這封信,

這是阿丹以台南市社區大學的名義,寫信給Bubbleology的老闆,

希望他在引進台灣之光-珍珠奶茶的同時,

也跟進台灣將於5月1日強制實行的自攜環保杯享折扣的最新政策。

 

尊敬的Assad先生,

我的名字是丹尼爾,我目前在台灣的台南市社區大學擔任環境志工。

「Bubbleology開張,在倫敦受到歡迎」的新聞,也出現在台灣當地的新聞中。

首先,我想說的是,把台灣茶推廣到歐洲真是個好主意,如果有機會拜訪倫敦,我一定會去嚐嚐看。

在台灣,只要我到飲料店買茶,我會帶自己的杯子去;我真的不喜歡看到每天有那麼多廢棄物產生。

 

在台南社大,每個月我們會到海灘進行廢棄物監測(http://163.26.52.242/~海灘/),雖然這是中文網頁,但我想,裡面有足夠的照片說明,儘管如此,對於海洋不會因此馬上變乾淨,需要更多人一起努力。我相信,對於目前地球正在面對的環境問題,你一定不陌生。而今,我們正透過各種方式讓大家自備杯子去買飲料。
最近,台灣政府通過了一項法律,5月1日起強制要求各飲料店給予自備飲料杯的消費者折扣。

在台灣,各界正努力地建少廢棄物的產生。台南社大希望,Bubbleology再引領潮流的同時,也可以跟進台灣的政策,透過一些折扣鼓勵英國的消費者,愛喝珍珠奶茶,也一起愛地球。

 Quoting Daniel Helmdach <dhelmdach@web.de:

 Dear Mr. Assad Khan,

 My name is Daniel, I am an German volunteer in Tainan, Taiwan. My work
 placement is the environmental department of the Community College.
 The news of you opening a tea shop in London appeared in local
 newspapers here. First let me say that I think it's a great idea to
 bring Taiwanese tea to Europe and I will come by the next time I come
 to London. I go to tea shops every day here and try as much of the
 non-ending varieties they offer. But I bring my own reusable cup every
 time. I hate to see how much waste is produced in these shops every
 day. We find loads of these in our monthly beach clean-ups (
 "http://163.26.52.242/~beach/" the page is only in Mandarin, but I
 think the pictures tell enough). Even if they don't end up in the
 oceans the contribute to the garbage issues in Taiwan, and will also
 do so in London. I believe that you will know enough about today's
 environmental problems. Through our work we are trying to encourage
 people to bring their own cups as well.

 The Taiwanese government recently passed a law requiring each tea shop
 and beverage selling shop of any kind to give a discount to people who
 bring their own. As it happens I went to a tea chain store yesterday
 and got 10 % off, though the law will only come into effect on May
 1st.
 So as they are trying here to reduce their waste output, it would be
 great if those shops in Europe selling Taiwanese Bubble Tea, could
 also contribute to that and encourage customers to bring they're own,
 maybe also through a small discount.

 I would be happy to receive your answer,

 Sincerely,

 Daniel Helmdach

下文是 Bubbleology老闆的回信

首先,謝謝你的來信,我們下次召開股東會議時,會把你的建議列入我們未來的工作項目。

有個問題請教,你的意思是顧客會帶用過的塑膠杯來買茶嗎?或是怎麼做呢?

我們會朝「可回收杯」繼續努力。

期待你的回覆
Assad

 Betreff: Re: Taiwanese Tea Shops and the Environment

 Thankyou for your email - we will certainly include this point into
 our next board meeting. Although - question for you - do customers
 bring their own re-sealable cup (the original one which we sold them)
 which is just re-sealed again?...

 Also, we will also be obtaining "greener/ recyclable" cups going forward.

 I look forward to your answer.
 Regards,
 Assad

尊敬的Assad先生,

謝謝你的支持與回信。

一般來說,消費者是不會重複使用飲料店提供的塑膠杯。

我們更鼓勵,消費者自備杯子或是瓶子到飲料店,而店家就會用這個杯子裝滿消費者所要的飲品。

Quoting Daniel Helmdach <dhelmdach@web.de:
 Dear Mr. Assad Khan,
 Thank you very much for your reply and your consideration.
 If people don't bring their own cup, they'll throw it away after
 they finished it. While especially chain stores use thicker plastic
 cups, it is just to complicated to remove the seal properly and the
 cup would be open until its reused.
 We use bottle-like cups with caps and if possible with scale or a
 some volume indicator, so the vendors know what size it is. But even
 if not, usually people trust each other enough, so there won't be a
 problem.

 Regards,

 Daniel Helmdach
