Bubble tea History
is a Taiwanese tea-based drink invented in Taichung in the 1980s. Most bubble tea recipes contain a tea base mixed/shaken with fruit or milk, to which chewy tapioca balls and/or fruit jellies are often added. The (bubble) refers to the foam created by shaking the tea, which itself is called (pao4mo4) (泡沫) tea, meaning (frothy/foamy) tea. It is common to add large, chewy tapioca balls to the drink, which are nicknamed bōbà (波霸), which is slang for (large breasts), and sounds much like (bubble)—thus the term (boba tea) and (bubble tea) have become somewhat synonymous in America, however in Taiwan there is a big distinction. These balls are also variantly called (粉圓, fěnyuán), or (pearls) (珍珠, zhēnzhū), especially when the balls are smaller (boba refers to the larger size). Ice-blended versions are usually mixed with fruit or syrup, resulting in a slushy consistency.
