What is Bubble Tea?
A naturally flavored iced tea fusion that tastes like a smoothie, but is lower in calories and sugar and is served over edible tapioca pearls also known as “boba”.
Most of our fruit-flavored cream drink includes powdered non-dairy creamers to enhance the drink. These creamed drinks don’t usually include tea as its base liquid, but can upon request.
What are those black things at the bottom?
Those are Tapioca Balls! They can also be called Boba, Bubbles, or Pearls. They are made from tapioca starch and have almost no taste, but are slightly sweetened to add to the flavor of your tea. Their consistency is soft and chewy and reminds us of gummy bears.
Where did it come from?
Unlike many other beverages, this drink is a recent invention, first created in the 1980′s in Taiwan. As always, there are a variety of people who claim to have first invented this drink phenomenon, but it soon spread from Taiwan to other Asian countries.
Is it carbonated?
No, bubble tea is not carbonated. In fact, it gets its name from little foamy “bubbles” that form at the top of the drink while being shaken or blended. This is why you can still order a “Bubble Tea” without the Tapioca Balls.
What does it taste like?
