What are Tapioca Bubbles, Boba, or Sago?
Bubble teas are generally of two distinct types: fruit-flavored teas and frothy milk teas. We even offer a hybrid "fruit milk tea." The original bubble tea consisted of a hot mixture of Taiwanese black tea, large pearl tapioca, condensed milk, and honey. As this drink became more popular, variations were created. Iced versions appeared soon, and then came along green bubble tea which uses jasmine-infused green tea instead of black tea. Peach or plum flavoring began to appear, then more fruit flavors were added until, in some variations, the tea was removed entirely in favor of real fruit.
As you might have heard while you are in our restaurant, the drink is made in a cocktail shaker or mixed in a blender with ice until chilled. Cooked tapioca pearls and other mix-ins like fruit jellies are combined at the end. (While the tapioca boba provide the prevailing chewy tidbits in bubble tea, fruit jellies are small rectangular strips, with flavors like coconut, mango, lychee, etc. that have a pliant, almost crispy consistency.)
