Boba tea!

/ Tuesday, May 3, 2011 /
If you are a college kid, or have been a college kid within the last 5 years, chances are you will have heard of boba tea, or aka bubble tea.

This tea is absolutely DELICIOUS! For me, it's quite addicting. It basically consists of tapioca inside of milk tea or plain green tea or jasmine tea. Different flavors can be added, including but not limited to: lychee, passion fruit, guava, orange, green apple, grape, strawberry, etc etc etc.

There are the milky kinds:

And then there are the kinds that don't have milk, such as jasmine or green tea:

Of course, you can always get it without boba:

Or you can get it as lattes, smoothies, shaved ice form, whatever. You can even add sinkers such as jelly or almond pudding or something. Whatever your heart desires.

The sad thing is that these are not really cheap for drinks. They come around $4 a pop. But seriously they are a good treat for a random Saturday night, or a cheap date!

My favorite kind? Green tea boba or jasmine tea boba, without milk. I feel that tea should be unadulterated by milk, whereas coffee can be doused by milk and sugar and stuff (after all, at least for me, it tastes horrible!).

Some people might be unnerved by the sight of tapioca; trust me, those chewy balls are kind of intricate. If you really don't like them, you can just get the tea without the boba/tapioca. Kind of looks like caviar, doesn't it? XD

I encourage you all to give it a try!!! ^_^
