- 5 Views
Bubble tea or Boba tea, is a Taiwanese recipe that is made by mixing tea with milk, fruit and fruit flavorings, then delicious tapioca balls are added and mixed loosely to create bubbles and justify the name of this tea.
Bubble tea has suddenly become globally popular, but it’s actually been around since the 1980s in countries like China. The base of the tea can be green tea or black tea, and if desired, you can add milk, which certainly adds to the taste of this drink. Since the base of the tea itself has a bitter taste, what gives this tea its uniqueness and sweetness are the tapioca balls themselves, after which the tea takes its name. Tapioca balls, also called boba, which are located at the bottom of the glass, have a consistency somewhere between jelly and chewing gum, and the flavors of the balls vary and are mostly fruity. In the offer you can choose fruit flavors such as mango, strawberry, apple or peach. In addition to these tapioca balls, you can also add jelly cubes, which also add to the pleasure of this Taiwanese drink.
The drink is served in a transparent glass with a wide straw to allow the tapioca balls to pass through as you drink the tea. Tapioca balls, better known as “beans” can burst in your mouth if you squeeze them and then their sweet aroma mixes with the tea giving a perfect blend of refreshing drink.
Before you start drinking the tea, you need to stir it a bit so that the aromas combine, and you get an perfect picture of mixing different colors of tea, jelly and balls. A sweet, cold refreshing and truly delicious treat. It comes in as many flavors as there are teas and fruits, so you can choose.
