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.

From soothing stress to providing weird minerals you didn't know you need, iced tea provides more than just a refreshing boost.

After water, tea is the most frequently consumed beverage in the world. Which make sense; tea goes hand in hand with images of Asia, the United Kingdom, India, Russia. But how about here in the old United States of America? It might not seem like we have a booming tea culture, but the fact is that on any given day, more than half of the American population drinks tea. But here’s the twist: 85 percent of that tea is served on the rocks.No matter what the season, tea can be a tasty beverage since it can be served iced or hot.

At the very least, it’s a flavorful way of getting enough fluid into your body each day. Whether black, green, white or oolong – all of which come from the same plant, just processed differently – all teas do a body good. Here are a few of the ways in which they do so.

1. Keeps you hydrated

2. Boosts your antioxidants

3. Offers a superior swap for sugary soda

4. May help your teeth

5. Chills the nerves
