Bubble Tea

Containing little tapioca balls, bubble tea is a drink that has inspired countless hot and cold variations with all the fun of milk shakes. It can be whirred in a blender, in which case the tapioca creates a slushy consistency, or the tapioca can remain as chewy balls (aka bobas) that demand a large-gauge straw. Bubble tea first was conceived in Taiwan in the 1980s and took hold in the U.S. starting on the West Coast in tea shops founded by Chinese immigrants.
