Bubble Tea also known as Pearl Milk tea or Boba is a refreshing sweet drink made hot or cold and comes in a variety of flavours. Its flavours and options have no limits and are virtually borderless. It is usually a mix of tea, milk, sugar and black tapioca balls that can be added with different toppings of jelly.
