There is no end goal to the game, as such it never really ends.

Screenshot This cute shop management simulation game starts with you making strawberry tea with boba pearls for yourself. Joji, a strawberry forest spirit, can transport between universes to anywhere a strawberry is being used in a special way.



Joji sees you making this delicious bubble tea and tries it and asks you to help introduce the love of boba to their realm. Can you show these adorable beings why this drink is so special?



You can create all kinds of drinks with ingredients like blueberry popping boba, custard pudding, taro tea, lychee jelly, and red bean!

You can even add froggy and axolotl lids to your drinks!



Brew tea, shake some bubbles, fill your cup with tapioca pearls and jelly, and catch falling fruit and cheese foam in mini-games to get boosts for your custom drinks!



Mix and match furniture and windows. We’ve got mushroom style counters and tables, frog chairs and windows, and cottage core elements to make your shop look magical!



Come help Joji restore their honor and earn them a “Royal Favorite Thing” award from the monarchs of this land!
