Boba, also known as Tapioca Pearls, originated in Taiwan and are made of the starch derived from cassava root. They are often the topping of choice in bubble tea beverages. When prepared perfectly, boba is sweet, soft, chewy, and translucent with a gummy bear-like texture. Tea Zone® Tapioca Peals come in a variety of textures and sizes including: regular black tapioca pearls, “Grade A” tapioca, tiny tapioca, green tea tapioca (seasonal) and white tapioca. Tea Zone® products are the preferred bubble tea products used by your favorite boba shops!
