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.
