A CLASSIC, REIMAGINED
Our new summer seasonal flavor features black sugar infused boba mochi. This rich mochi, enhanced with a hint of sugar and molasses, surrounds a light and floral jasmine ice cream. Each bite of the mochi perfectly emulates the classic taste of your favorite bubble tea... only inside out, with the boba surrounding the tea, rather than floating inside it.
WHERE DOES BOBA COME FROM?
While cassava starch comes from the South American root vegetable, the drink we now know and love originated in Taiwanese tea shops.
Boba tea's story began in Taiwan in the late 1980’s, where brewed, sweetened and shaken green or black tea was popular. Deemed “bubble tea” for the froth that formed after the drink is vigorously shaken, this style of tea was an instant hit.
The origin of adding tapioca pearls to bubble tea is hotly disputed. One tea house claims its owner had the idea while pursuing a local market, while another says its 20-year-old employee added the pearls to the tea they sold on a whim during her shift. Both were unsuccessful in trademarking their product and soon, boba tea was featured on menus across Taiwan.
