We are NOT looking for other places that sell or someday might sell the Bubble Drinks. IE: 7-Eleven, StarBucks, Wal Mart, Target, McDonalds, Oriental Restaurants.............

Bubble tea is also known as boba drink, pearl tea drink, boba ice tea, boba, boba nai cha, zhen zhou nai cha, pearl milk tea, pearl ice tea, black pearl tea, tapioca ball drink, BBT, PT, pearl shake, QQ (which means chewy in Chinese) and possible many others.

What exactly is Boba? Boba is basically tapioca. When perfectly cooked it turns into a brown ball with a certain degree of transparency on its outer walls. It is chewy and slippery: soft and gooey on the outside, and chewy within. Boba by itself is not sweet; it is rather tasteless. When serving Boba, it is best to soak it in honey or sugar syrup to keep it soft and flavored. It can be added to a variety of drinks, both hot and cold.

A clear cup with black balls on the bottom can easily identify bubble Tea drinks. Another obvious trait is a huge fat straw. The fat straw is needed so that the tapioca pearls can be sucked up with the drink and eaten. Bubble Tea's appearance definitely makes it unique. One thing is for certain. Bubble Tea is not a fad. It's a trend. This drink is addictive. If you've had a good one before then you know what we're talking about.

Boba Milk Tea, or more commonly known as Bubble Tea, is composed of a tea base, usually Black or Jasmine Green Tea, a milk/creamer component and tapioca/boba on the bottom of the cup. While Boba Milk Tea refers to a specific drink, Bubble Tea is a more general categorical description of a line of beverages offered in a typical tea bar, such as tea, slush, smoothies, juices, and more.

Some flavors include: Almond, Banana, Black Milk Tea, Cantaloupe, Green Apple, Green Tea, Honeydew (Many drinkers favor this one), Black Tea Lychee, Mango, Pineapple Red Bean, Strawberry, Taro (Sweet Potato), Vanilla, Watermelon.
