MAYGEM
Tempo was born when I (May Gem) decided that the investment banking sector wasn’t for me as I wasn’t getting much fulfillment from staring at not just one but two computer screens.

I spoke to my family and my brother Liam was also interested in supporting me start a business. I was in London and spotted someone carrying this drink that I could only get when in Malaysia visiting my family which I later discovered was called Bubble Tea. This became the starting point for Tempo, the first Bubble Tea store in Scotland.

Since 2013, we have grown our product range so much that I wouldn’t define ourselves as simply a Bubble Tea store but more a diverse drinks bar that whatever your Tempo is, we will help you find the perfect drink.

Favourite drink:

Passionfruit and Peach Fruit tea with added Guarana and topped with Lychee popping boba and Aloe Vera jelly

– Perfect refreshing tea for me as I’m always on the go!

Liam
My real name is Wee Liam

Favourite drink:

Fight Fruit with added probiotics, to keep my guts healthy and get me ready for the gym with its added Caffeine from Guarana

JERRICA
My sister, Jessica, made up my name by changing the s’s in her name to r’s

Favourite drink:

Sugar Free Caramel and Vanilla Milk Tea with added protein and Tapioca and Aloe Vera jelly – my muscles are constantly sore from working out so helps me recover (and also because it’s SUPER DELICIOUS)

LINA
I like drawing and true crime podcasts!

Favourite drink:

Apple Cider with Mango and Multivitamins; tangy and sweet and keeps me alert!

CJ
I’ve seen Jedward live, no shame.

Favourite drink:

Taro with a scoosh of condensed milk to make it extra thick and sweet- this is my treat drink. Otherwise, a cheeky wee honey lemon gets me through a long day!

SARAH
I’m a huge K-Pop fan, and I’ve seen G-Dragon, Ravi from Vixx, Monsta X, Jay Park and BTS live!

Favourite drink:

Hemp Soda with Lychee Boba! The combination of the Passionfruit black tea and the Lychee boba tastes amazing, and the added CBD helps with my anxiety and muscle pain!
