Bubble Tea - Is It A Drink Or A Dessert?

Perhaps you have heard of bubble tea but if not you will soon. It is growing in popularity as it is a tasty and refreshing combination of a tea drink and a delicious dessert. This beverage can be made in quite a variety of flavors, served either hot or cold. Some of these more popular flavors are peach, mango, passion fruit, chocolate milk, or familiar green. There are many more to choose from but these are the most popular ones.
This is the reason why you could ask the question 'Is this a drink or a dessert?'. You can use an extra sized straw to allow you to savor the tapioca as it melts into your mouth. These balls will sink to the bottom of the drink giving much of the sweet flavor.

These are big balls of chewy tapioca that are responsible for creating the bubbles. One of the things that makes bubble tea unique is that it contains tapioca balls.
If you want to enjoy bubble tea in your home you can purchase kits that include the dried tapioca pearls, various powdered flavors of your choosing, and the larger straws necessary to get the full effect of the pearls. Complete directions for steeping the tea and adding the pearls will be included to make your drink extra special and your tapioca chewy. When you are planning your next family gathering consider buying bubble tea party packs. You will receive enough materials to make around 25 deliciously bubbly beverages. Your family members will be asking you what this sweet drink is and where they can find it.
You can find many types of tea at your local grocery store or on the internet, and many times you can sample several flavors in 'sample packs' before you decide on a favorite. Recently these gourmet tea drinks have made their way into western countries and have taken the place of such drinks as coffee or soda. Specialty teas have historically been a big part of Asian culture and is believed to bring good health and longer lives. These teas originated in Asia and like most teas were brought here by enthusiasts who knew they would make a big splash.
If you enjoy drinking tea you should give bubble tea a try. However, it is not your traditionally flavored tea and may take some getting used to. It has a sweet creamy taste and can make a terrific dessert for your next formal meal. You can break out of the ordinary and make these teas for all your guests.
