How To Drink Boba Tea (Everything You Were Afraid To Ask!)

In its simplest form, boba tea is a beverage made with tea, tapioca balls and sometimes sweetener.  When milk or cream is added, the drink is often called milk tea.

This delicious drink goes by many different names including: bubble tea, pearl milk tea, boba milk tea, bubble milk tea, pearl tea, tapioca tea and even kung fu tea.

Boba Tea Comes In Tons Of Flavors

Some common flavors include green tea, black tea, taro (the purple one!), mango, strawberry, passionfruit, brown sugar and lots more. The combinations of flavors are endless!

Bubble tea can look a little intimidating, but don’t let that stop you!  You drink it the same way as any other drink, except you’ll notice at the bottom there are little boba balls that often look like dark pearls.

Boba tea is served with a wide straw so you can suck up the boba balls.  When you get one in your mouth, just chew it up for a fun texture and even more flavor!
