How was Bubble Tea (a.k.a Boba Tea) made?

Bubble teas are made of two types: fruit-flavored teas and milk teas. However, some shops offer "fruit milk teas". Most milk teas include powdered dairy or non dairy creamers, but some shops also offer fresh milk as an alternative. Other varieties are 100% crushed-fruit smoothies with tapioca pearls and signature ice cream shakes made from local ice cream sources. Many American bubble tea vendors sell "milk smoothies", which are similar to bubble tea but do not contain any tea ingredients. Some small cafés offer sweetener substitutes, such as honey,etc.
