Bubble tea has became increasingly popular in the UK with many people switching from the day-to-day coffee and tea to experimenting a wide variety of flavoured fruit teas and milk teas served ice cold or warm with chewy tapioca balls that you suck up through a big fat straw!
The tapioca balls are sometimes referred to as ‘Perls’ or ‘Boba’, which some people say over time has evolved in to the word ‘Bubble’.
However, the true origins of the name come from the small floating bubbles that are created by the vigorous shaking involved in making a bubble tea.
Bubble Tea Originated In Taiwan In The Early 1980'S At A Small Tea Stand.
Elementary school children would look forward to buying a cup of refreshing tea after a long, hard day of work and play. Tea stands were set up in front of the schools and would compete for business with the best selling tea. One concession owner became popular with her tea when she started adding different fruit flavoring to her tea. Because of the sweet and cool taste, children loved the taste. Soon, other concessions heard about the "unique" and popular tea, so they started to add flavoring to their teas. When adding flavor, the tea and flavoring needed to be shaken well for a good all around taste. This formed bubbles in the drink, which came to be known as "Bubble Tea."
In 1983 Liu Han-Chieh introduced Taiwan to tapioca pearls. The new fad was to add tapioca pearls into a favorite drink. Most of the time tapioca pearls were served in cold infused tea. After the tea and flavor were shaken well, it topped tapioca pearls that were sitting on the bottom of a clear cup. The tapioca pearls also looked like bubbles, thus also became to known as "Bubble Tea." Bubbles floated on the top your drink and bottom of your drink.
