bioba - Natural Bubble Tea

Bubble tea, also known internationally as Pearl Milk Tea or Boba Boba, originated in Taiwan and was invented in the mid-1980s, ostensibly because tea houses wanted to get kids excited about drinking tea again. Based on sweetened green or black tea with milk and fruit syrup, it has always been drunk with a straw. The special feature of this drink, however, was the addition of colored balls of tapioca, resembling fruit gum, or popping bobas, with a liquid filling of fruit juice, which burst in the mouth to produce their effect.

Bubble tea only really became popular after a report on Japanese television in the 1990s. From then on, it became a trendy drink in Asia, but also made its way across the pond to California (USA) and from there spread throughout the United States. In Taiwan, China, as well as Southeast Asia, the United States, and Australia, there are tea house chains that still exclusively offer bubble tea in a wide variety of forms.

In our latitudes, the unusual little balls are now called bubbles. They are also used by creative minds in molecular cuisine, for example, to give selected dishes and drinks a fruity kick. The experience begins as soon as one of these pearls in your mouth.

With a spirited press of the palate, the pearl is burst, boah!!! An explosion of taste buds, the electrifying nerve impulse reaches the brain and sends all the senses into supreme rapture.

But now you want to know exactly what is inside, what is it that can enchant you so? Fruit juice? No, real fruit puree without preservatives and with natural coloring. So it’s really fun, with no regrets! Then go ahead, get on the bubble wave and off you go!
