Shared via the hashtag #手放しタピオカ, the so-called handsfree boba tea challenge is reportedly inspired by a collection of illustrations by artist Kiseki Himura called “Tawawa on Monday.”

The challenge has become quite popular that it has even inspired fan art with manga/anime characters also drinking boba tea using their boobs.

While many netizens have reacted quite positively to the trend, some have noted that it’s a challenge that not all women can easily participate in.

Others have pointed out that the challenge is quite fitting since, in Taiwan, where the “bubble tea phenomenon” originated, the term boba is actually a slang word for “large breasts.”
