NATIONAL BUBBLE TEA DAY
What do tea and bubbles have in common? Together, they make a fantastic treat. Bubble Tea! On April 30, National Bubble Tea Day invites you to get adventurous and experience a growing flavorful menu of choices!
In the 1980s, the Taiwanese developed a beverage combining the refreshing goodness of tea, the wholesome creaminess of milk and the fun, delicious surprise of bubbles. The bubbles, also known as boba or pearls, are made from tapioca. The tea can be created with or without milk, ice, sugar, and toppings.
Whether you are 3 or 103, there is a tasty, extraordinary tea made with fresh ingredients for you to enjoy!
