Creating the Perfect Snow

Creating the Perfect Snow 0

Snow is that sweet treat you get in a bowl, pile toppings next to it and share most of it with your friend.

What is Snow Exactly?

Snow is thinly shaved flavored ice that is the happy marriage of Hawaiian ice and ice cream. Our snow is made with fresh ingredients to give you the perfect taste that refreshes you every time.

To get the perfect Snow you must do the following:

  1. Shave the ice just right by getting thin strips using the Ice Shaver, need to know specifics? Check out our video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxYlDaRFnIE&t=53s
  2. Carefully add your favorite toppings right along the side

PRO TIP

Never put the toppings on top, your Snow will melt faster if they are piled on

     3. Share (or don’t) with your friends!


What better way to stay cool in the warm afternoon?

The New Chapter of Boba, Right Here in California

The New Chapter of Boba, Right Here in California 0

According to The New York Times, boba tea or bubble tea “was invented in Taiwan in the 1980s, is internationally beloved, with many millions of drinkers worldwide, and an essential part of social life for many Americans”. While boba is highly demanded in America, boba has always been imported from overseas.


Our CEO, David Fan, who has been drinking bubble tea since he was 10, said he hoped boba could one day follow the route of pizza — an immigrant food that, over time, became distinctly American. “That’s why we want to make the whole process transparent,” he said. “People are only afraid of things they don’t know.”


It’s been a long journey for our team to learn the technique of boba-making with months of R&D and testing until we landed. Fanale Drinks and Boba Guys are partnered up and excited to introduce our sister company US Boba Co. and the new factory in Hayward, California.


We would like to express our excitement by sharing today’s article on The New York Times. Thanks for connecting us to the community with a nice introduction of our passions and mission. We are looking forward to maintain this upward momentum with quality products and hard work.

Where Does Boba Tea Come From?

This is a drink that originated in Taiwan in the 1980s and spread throughout Southeast Asia before finding its way to the U.S. Most of us think of bubble tea as being synonymous with boba tapioca pearls, but bubble tea was originally just a cold milk tea that was shaken until frothy. Sometimes boba were added, but basil seeds or cubes of jelly were also used.

It's often referred to as Boba Milk Tea or Pearl Milk. These amazing mixtures combine sweetened organic black or green tea and milk or non-dairy creamer – served with chewy tapioca balls.

Every sip puts a smile on your lips!

Benefits Of Black Tea

Benefits Of Black Tea 0

Black tea gives you an energy boost.

People often have tea in the afternoon as a way of increasing their energy. Afternoon tea as we know it today was in fact created for just this reason. Back in the mid 1800s, at around the time that tea was introduced to England, dinner was often eaten quite late, and the gap between meals was too long. Tea was introduced as a light meal for the upper classes.

Black tea contains antioxidants.

Most of us have heard of free radicals and know that they are linked to problems such as cancer, heart disease and arthritis. Free radicals cause damage to the cells in our body by causing oxidisation. Oxidisation is something that happens naturally in and out of the body. It is not something we can avoid.

Black tea leads to better oral health.

One of the other benefits of black tea is in oral hygiene. Some studies have suggested that rinsing with tea may lead to better oral health. Apparently this is also thought be to due to antioxidants.

A little more about black tea.

All tea comes from the same kind of bush, Camellia sinesis. It is called green or black or white depending on the way it has been dried and treated once it has been picked, and it has different qualities depending on where in the world it was grown.

Black teas are processed differently around the world. Basically, though, they are all withered first. The leaves are picked and spread out to for up to 18 hours to begin to dry. 

Then they are either rolled or cut (rolling makes a better tea, cutting is for teabags). This breaks the skin of the leaf and releases the juices. Then they are allowed to oxidize for a short time by simply being spread out and left (only for 30 minutes or so). 

Finally, the oxidization is stopped by heating the leaves, usually in a dryer of some kind.
