It may surprise you to know that bubble tea has actually been around since the 80s, when it was created in Taiwan.

It was those starchy balls that landed the 14-year-old girl from Zhejiang province in eastern China in trouble.

The teenager was admitted to hospital after complaining of stomach pains and that she hadn't had a bowel movement in over five days, AsiaOne news outlet reports.

Puzzled, doctors conducted a CT scan which showed up more than 100 spherical shadows dotted throughout her digestive tract.

A teenage girl who went to hospital with severe constipation was found to have more than 100 bubble tea balls trapped in her stomach.

Tests showed the tapioca balls were starchy, and could have been hard to digest. It's generally served with a thick straw wide enough for the chewy tapioca pearls to travel up.

After being questioned on her diet, the girl told doctors she had drunk one cup of bubble tea five days earlier.

But she warned the drinks should be regarded as desserts.

Bubble tea, which is already saturated with sugar, contains as much as 50 grams of sugar and close to 500 calories. The flavoured non-alcoholic and non-carbonated cold tea beverage has been particularly popular owing to one of its ingredient - tapioca pearls - which are loved for their chewy, candy-like texture, and are often referred to by their Chinese name, boba. Minimizing the amount of pearls in the drink, or avoiding them altogether, can cut calories from a bubble tea, according to Kuzemchak.
