You've seen it and heard of it! But did you try the best bubble tea in Boston yet?
Boston has two categories of people: people crazy about the latest Starbuck edition, and those crazy about the newest bubble tea flavor. We fall into the latter category. Feel free to call it an addiction.
But first, what's bubble tea? It is a tea-based Taiwanese drink with different flavors and a tapioca pearl. Bubble tea ranges from milk teas to fruity tea, expanding into smoothies, slushies, and juices. And what are the chewy balls? They are called the Tapioca pearls, an extract of starch found in cassava roots.
Bubble tea shops like Gong cha spice up their drink by switching from the tapioca Pearl into popping pearls or fruit jelly. These add-ons, once you pop them in your mouth, explode with your drink.
While bubble tea (also called tapioca tea, boba, etc.) may look seemingly different from your regular Starbuck green tea order, we bet it's amazingly delicious.
Today, boba is available in almost any imaginable flavor. In other words, there's always a flavor for everyone.
Are you a first-timer looking for the best bubble tea in Boston? Check out the following drinks and flavor combo:
