Bubble Tea or Boba Tea as the world knows it, originated in Taiwan but is now a popular ice-cold beverage in America. The name Boba comes from the black tapioca pearls also known as boba balls or boba pearls which settle down at the bottom of the cup of the boba drink. These boba pearls are made from made cassava plants. Initially Sago or white tapioca pearls were used to make the boba drink but later on, black boba pearls which are bigger in size were used to increase the popularity of the bubble tea.
