  1. i don’t quite remember what i was originally looking for when i managed to run across your bubble tea post. however, your write up regarding your experience with it has been my favorite so far (love how you included the language exchange, thank you).

    you make mention of going out of your way to get your fix, i wonder though – have you maybe taken a look around your local area to see if there’s possibly an asian market that might have the pearls? (chances are if they’ve the pearls, they’ll have straws for you as well).

    best of luck, both with your pearl milk tea adventures and your first year at harvard. 🙂

  2. Thank you Pipkin! I did in fact find an Asian market near my house but the bubbles that I made didn’t turn out very tasty…I’ve heard they are actually pretty hard/time-consuming to make if you want them to taste yummy. And I’m lazy. But its perfect here in Cambridge because there is a bubble tea place right by my dorm!


  3. Where I live they do the bubble tea a little differently. They add the bubbles at the bottom of the cup and make the tea together with the ice in a shaker just like the one a bartender would use before pouring it over the bubbles. That makes the bubble tea all nice and frothy. I like coffee-flavoured so I mostly go for the flavour they like to call ‘cappuccino’ (which is really a fancy name for plain milky coffee flavour). It’s artificial but I love it, hehe.


  4. Thanks for this. I saw people drinking these bubble teas in Manchester (UK) today and I wondered what they were. I only wish I had tried it now!


  5. I also love bubble tea. It’s been several months since my last fix near Niagra Falls, NY. Just last night at the Yankee Stadium for the ALDS Game I was able to order a coconut bubble tea. Boy was that delicious. So much so that I went back and ordered one in yam flavor. However, just today my bubble was burst when I was told that some of the ingredients are carcinogenic. Sure enough, I did a Google search and it was confirmed through Wikipedia. What have you heard on this?


  6. Good job I’m working on a logo based on bubble tea and uploading it to my Facebook 😀 I love your post about the bubble tea I’m glad you like it, have you ever tried Bubble tea Taro it will get you addicted to drinking it like me @_@ 🙂 and btw for the choking hazard part I drink with a small straw and eat the pearls after I’m done lol.


  7. hello birdy,

    i’m slinky and bubble tea just came to mauritius ( where i live), island in middle of indian ocean like three months ago with a shop called twin tea leaf. I tasted my first bubble tea- the peach green tea and like it. Mauritian people are tea lovers and those who have a feel they should go on diet like me also fancy green tea a lot, so this was a nice treat. I must say I think the tea tasted better that the tapioca pearls which I didn’t find sugary at all but it is difficult to assign a specific taste to it but I did like the chewy part. I’m eager to taste some more and the shop owner recommended a mango green tea, it will be my next one.


  8. Hey there, Thank you for this great blog post! I have to save Bubble Tea- Delicious Despite the Choking Hazard by The Traveling Bird is hilarious. Cheers.


  9. Wow, incredible blog layout! How many years have you been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your site is great, as well as the content! Thanks


  10. Wow, this was ages ago, but nevertheless. I had my first Boba in Chicago on my way home from work in 2010. I have been addicted ever since. I now live in Fargo, ND and I found a place that makes Boba tea!! Such a relief. Last week I tried avocado banana, which to the average person sounds terrible, but it is truly a treat! I would suggest it for your next Boba 😉
