The New Chapter of Boba, Right Here in California 1
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.

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.
