Bubble tea or pearl milk tea — more commonly referred to as boba tea — started gaining popularity all over Asia in the 1980s. Whatever you call it, the drink made with black tea, milk, ice + chewy tapioca pearls (boba) is still on the rise thanks to Gen Z. Here are three places you can get your hands on the creamy and chewy refreshment.
