Boba tea, also known as Bubble Tea, originated in Taiwan. This milk tea came to America in the 90s but took off on social media in the mid-2000s and is now a full-blown sensation across the country. There has been a tradition built around getting a cup of Boba be it on long walks, studying, or even on first dates. Each drink primarily consists of four parts: tapioca pearls or jelly, a choice of tea, milk, and a sweetener. Read along on where to find your Boba fix in Hoboken and Jersey City.
