boba baby…


 I love gummy things. So it's no surprise that Boba Milk Tea is one of my favorite indulgences. Also known as bubble tea (because of the tapioca balls floating at the bottom) and usually found in Chinese bakeries and neighborhoods, it's pretty common these days to find boba tea offered even in non-Asian cafes and coffee houses. However, if you love it as much as I do, you can make your own with these WuFuYuan tapioca pearls found at an Asian grocery store or online. Follow the easy directions on the package and add to a tea of your choice. There are a ton of ways to make tea using recipes like this, this and this. My fave is coconut or almond black milk tea, iced, and served with a jumbo straw.

  1. I had this drink in Taiwan years ago – it was delicious! I never considered making it myself though – thanks for this.

  2. Even in the blistering cold I could have a bubble tea! Joy, what were favorite places in Philly? Every now and again I’d stop into the Bubble House in University City but I know there are others… maybe I should just make it myself at home 🙂

  3. ……When adding flavor, the tea and flavoring needed to be shaken well for a good all around taste. This formed bubbles in the drink, which came to be known as “Bubble Tea.
