As one of the most beautiful and Instagram-able drinks out there, boba (also known as bubble tea) is taking the world by storm. Boba is a drink that originated in the 1980s in Taichung, Taiwan. It gets its name from the pearls made of tapioca starch which are most often added to milk tea, but can also be added to herbal tea, slushes, coffee, and more.

Whether you’re a boba newbie or you’ve tried nearly every drink out there, Ten One Tea House should be on everyone’s list of Boston boba shops to try!
