Boba originated in the 1980s in Taiwan, but there are many variations of this sweet, tea-based drink and they are recognizable by the colorful tapioca balls called boba that float in the bottom of the drink.

The most common boba drinks are a tea base combined with milk or fruit and prepared over a bed of boba pearls. There are boba milk teas, green teas, black teas, smoothies, coffee drinks, and a slew of other preparations that can be enhanced boba with rich flavors that range from sweet to savory.

It's boba that give the drinks their distinctive taste and texture. Boba are made of tapioca which come from the cassava root. The texture is like a gummy bear and the flavor adapts to the drink because the boba absorb the drink.
