Bubble or Boba- Its Tea Time in Las Vegas
Yummy Bubble Tea or Boba if you prefer,in Taiwan is what coffee or soda is to the U.S. One would think Bubble Tea is the national drink by its popularity.
Just like in Taiwan, Bubble Tea shops are popping up all over Las Vegas.
Bubble Tea originated in Taiwan in the early 1980's at a small tea stand.
One concession owner became popular with her tea when she started adding different fruit flavoring to her tea. When adding flavor, the tea and flavoring needed to be shaken well for a good all around taste. This formed bubbles in the drink, which came to be known as "Bubble Tea."
The new fad was to add tapioca pearls into a favorite drink. Most of the time tapioca pearls were served in cold infused tea. After the tea and flavor were shaken well, it topped tapioca pearls that were sitting on the bottom of a clear cup. The tapioca pearls also looked like bubbles, thus also became to known as "Bubble Tea." Bubbles floated on the top your drink and bottom of your drink.The consistency of tapioca pearls are somewhere between jell-o and chewing gum. They are the size of a marble. They are also known as the "boba" drink in Western China because it is described as to having the same texture as the female breasts.Bubble Tea is available at many locations including Boba Tea Lounge8846 South Eastern Avenue, Las Vegas, NV (702) 942-6064 and Boba Tea
