Bubble tea

With tapioca pearls or coconut jelly!

Bubble tea

Bubble tea is a drink from Taiwan made in the late 1980s. One day someone as a joke put in a kind of dessert called tapioca pearls. This became a usual thing in bubble tea today with shops appearing throughout the U.S. Some who didn't eat the pearls could substitute coconut jelly for this. Also some kids like to blow the pearls out of their straw like a spitball at others
