What is Boba?

What are those delicious brown squishy balls at the bottom of your favorite bubble tea drinks? It’s Boba! Also known as bubble tea or pearl milk tea, has become a beloved drink around the world. The origins of Boba can be traced back to Taiwan in the 1980s, where it was created as a new twist on traditional milk tea.


The story goes that a tea shop owner in Taiwan named Liu Han-Chieh decided to add tapioca pearls to his milk tea to create a new and unique drink. The tapioca pearls were originally used in desserts, but Liu Han-Chieh thought they would add an interesting texture to his tea. The drink was an instant hit and soon became a popular trend in Taiwan.


The name "bubble tea" came from the frothy bubbles that are created when the tea is shaken with ice and sugar. The tapioca pearls also look like bubbles in the drink, adding to the fun and unique experience of drinking bubble tea.


Traditionally, Boba is made by cooking tapioca pearls until they become soft and chewy. However, at Milky Boba, we've developed a new type of Boba that doesn't require any cooking at all. Our Brown Sugar Agar Jelly Boba is made with agar jelly instead of tapioca pearls, and it's already pre-made and ready to eat.


Not only is our agar jelly boba delicious and chewy, it's also incredibly convenient. You don't have to spend time cooking tapioca pearls, and you don't have to worry about making a large batch just for one drink. With Milky Boba's agar jelly boba, you can enjoy bubble tea anytime you want, without any fuss.


In fact, our agar jelly boba is so good that in a taste test, you couldn't tell the difference between ours and the traditional cooked boba. Our brown sugar flavor adds the perfect touch of sweetness to any drink, and the chewy texture is just as if they were cooked in a café.


At Milky Boba, we're proud to offer a new and convenient way to enjoy Boba. Whether you're a fan of traditional tapioca pearls or you're looking to try something new, our Brown Sugar Agar Jelly Boba is the perfect addition to any drink. Try it out for yourself and see why our customers can't get enough!
