Fruit Boba Pearls (Tapioca Balls)

Fruit Boba Pearls

Boba  pearls are spheres made of flour, tapioca starch, and water  boiled together until they form a sticky mixture that is ready to be moulded into soft balls. Bubble tea enthusiasts enjoy Boba Pearls because of their chewy texture and sweet flavour. 

Fruit boba pearls are the most popular of all the bubble tea types, and for a good reason too. This  type of boba pearl  is made from fresh fruit or fruit  extracts. These pearls are translucent and have a sweet, chewy texture. They are often served as an appetiser or dessert with fruit juice, tea or coffee. The twist in  tapioca pearls, aside from their fruity flavour, is that they are very healthy, as incorporating fruits into these pearls means  health benefits also come with them.

But what’s the story behind these little pearls? Why are they so beloved by bubble tea lovers all over? Here are two reasons why:

  1. They’re chewy and satisfying: Bubbling hot broth mixed with sweet syrupy tapioca pearls is a heavenly combination.  They’re especially great when  served with boba pearls as an extra luxurious touch. The texture of the boba keeps them from becoming soggy, even if you eat them straight from the cup.
  2. You can eat them in different ways: There’s something about popping those suckers in your mouth that feels satisfying – like you’ve conquered something!
