Bubble tea made from tapioca or fruit

Bubble tea shines with many bright colors. Not only the pearls, but also the tea shines in yellow, green, red, and many other colors.
Especially since we expect many artificial ingredients from products from the Far East, bubble tea surprises with only natural ingredients. Color and taste are obtained purely from fruits.

The round shape of the bubbles and their liquid content also arise naturally:

The pearls are what make bubble tea so special. A bubble tea is not only an experience for the taste, but also a unique drinking feeling.

There are two types of pearls, both made from natural ingredients :

Tapioca pearls

Tapioca pearls have the consistency of gummy bears with a solid core. They are made from tapioca flour , which is obtained from the tapioca root.
Tapioca pearls are the “classic” bubbles. However, the tapioca is almost tasteless, which is why the “popping bobas” have prevailed to this day:

The flour is shaped into pearls with water and then boiled in hot water.

Popping bobas

Popping Boba pearls are made from fruit juice . A thin, gelatin-like bowl keeps the liquid juice in shape.
So the juice does not mix with the tea and only develop the full, fruity taste in the mouth.
When ‘ironed on’ the pearls ‘explode’ and release the sweet fruit juice.

The pearls are made by a process that comes from molecular cuisine: juice is dripped into a water bath with calcium chloride. But don’t worry: the calcium chloride is only in a very, very low concentration (approx. 2%) in the water and does not penetrate the pearls.

Eat? Drink?

Bubble tea is drunk with a thick straw through which the pearls are also sucked up. The pearls can then be chewed. You can eat or drink the pearls. Try a bubble tea of your choice and decide for yourself
