Boba Milk Tea, also known as Bubble tea, is a drink born in Taiwan in the 1980s. The drink gets its name from the gelatinous balls made from Tapioca flour from the Cassava root. The starch from these root vegetables is made into a dough, shaped into balls, boiled, and soaked in simple sugar syrup. The drink is then assembled with a bottom layer of boba balls or pearls in syrup, milk, and then traditionally Black tea to top it off. They then used an oversized straw to stir the mixture together before taking a sip and enjoying the tea while you munch on the chewy balls. The Taiwanese phrase 'Q' refers to the gummy, chewy texture of the balls. Thanks to Travel and Food influencers before Bubble tea took over social media.
