The bubbles or pearls (can be tapioca, popping boba, jelly or fruit) has been one of my favorite beverages since I was a kid. I prefer the slush and the sweeter flavors vs the milk tea options. My wife prefers the milk tea though.

My wife found this good spot not too far from us, driving distance, but that’s alright as it’s more of a treat than a staple.

Does anyone else bubble tea?

I’ve had it a few times, but not a fan of the texture & consistency of the bubbles

I have not heard of this before. I'm a fan of other teas so I may have to try this sometime.

It’s okay. I enjoy other beverages more. Maybe I haven’t had the right one.

I try and get my bubbles from Coke. Sometimes with a little rum mixed in. ;)

I think technically I can get lumped into the baby boomers category. As such bubble tea is forbidden. ;)

Outside of trying to be funny, we have a Townsends Tea Company here. I've gone in to buy kombucha on tap. I should really try a bubble tea. They appear to be wildly popular.

I do like the bubble tea. Blueberry is my go to flavor. We have a Pho place about a mile from our house so I stop there from time to time.

My daughter tried some at a local Korean restaurant. Good grief is that stuff sweet. If you think McDonald's sweet tea needs another cup of sugar in it this is your drink. For me it gets a big :sick: though.
