Yes, ironically this coffee centric blog will begin with a discussion about a tea inclusion, but it seemed fitting as we just reintroduced the availability of boba here at the shop (just in time for the warmer weather), and many of you have wondered what this wonderful addition is all about.
First – exactly what boba is: little balls of tapioca goodness simmered to softness and soaked in a sweet syrup.
Why? – well, it is delicious in cold beverages, usually tea…traditionally milk tea.
Who comes up with the stuff? – It originated in Taiwanese tea houses as a recipe for cold milk teas.
Anyway, we could go on and on about the facts and figures about these delicious pearls, but instead, I’ll leave you with some of my favorite boba recipes for you to try out:
Mango/Wildberry fusion tea with boba
Iced almond green and white tea with boba
Iced vanilla black tea with boba and a splash of cream
Let us know what you think after you try it!
