A bubble tea shop is set to open in a town centre this weekend.
The family-run company Boba Town will be welcoming its first customers at their new Gravesend store on Friday.
A spokesman for the drinks shop said: "We are super excited to announce that we will be opening our doors. We want to thank you all for your support and patience.
"We have worked tirelessly over the last few years to perfect our flavours and cannot wait to show you all."
Boba Town will be serving "secret family recipes" including taro milk tea, lychee fruit tea with mango popping boba and brown sugar milk tea.
It offered a sneak peek at one of its exclusive drinks on it's social media channels ahead of the launch.
Boba, also known as bubble tea, is a tea-based drink that became popular in Taiwan in the 1980s.
It is made by blending tea with milk, fruit and fruit juices, then adding tapioca pearls and shaking vigorously.
The shop is opening at 39B Kempthorne Street in the St George's Centre on Friday and will be running a half-price deal until Monday.
