What is Bubble Tea?
Bubble Tea is a relatively recent phenomenon in Taiwan. Its sweet tea and chewy “bubbles” has captured the taste buds of the young American demographic. It entered American markets through California, where it is simply known as boba, but has become known as bubble tea in New York. Boba originates from Chinese slang that refers to the tapioca as boobs. In proper Chinese, they are called pearls. Therefore bubble tea can be referred to as boba milk tea and pearl milk tea.
