Boba is a large round tapioca pearl. It is sometimes colored and sometimes plain white. Boba is cooked in a sugar solution and added to drinks such as green or jasmine tea, fruit teas and milk teas. ‘Bubble’ teas are consumed with a large straw to accommodate the tapioca pearl. They have become quite popular in many coffee and tea houses, and some Asian restaurants. Boba is a Taiwanese treat that you’re sure to enjoy!
