Tapioca Pearls, also known as Boba, get their delightful consistency from cassava starch, collected from the root of the cassava plant. After cooking and expanding to twice its original size, the tapioca pearl becomes chewy and sticky, almost like a gummy candy. On its own, tapioca does not have much flavor, but it is usually mixed with a sweetener before it is added to tea.
