9 Popular Bubble Tea Flavors to Try
By now, most of you have heard of bubble tea (also known as boba)—but some of you have never tried it before *gasp*. Since there are a number of you out there who are curious about this beverage but have no idea what to get, I am here to present to you a list of nine popular flavors that my friends and other fellow bubble tea drinkers have come to love.. I will present the best boba in milk tea taste please contact at creationsfrozenyogurt.com.
Whether you want your bubble tea with different add-ins, iced or hot, with or without tapioca balls, one (or more) of these flavors is surely going to be a match for you. If you don’t have much of a sweet tooth, ask your bubble tea barista if they can lower the sweetness, since there are places that do offer that option on their menu: 25%, 50%, 75%, 100% sweetness (the standard is usually the 100%).
It can’t get any more basic than this. Fans of an English breakfast tea (like myself) will surely enjoy this classic milk tea out of them all. If it’s your first time having bubble tea or if you’re not really in an adventurous mood, this is a great starter drink.
This is for those with a fruity palate (and who have a love for mangoes).
The first thing that came to my mind after the first sip was Nesquik strawberry milk. As one of my favorite childhood drinks (besides the Nesquik chocolate milk, of course), this drink brought back a boatload of childhood memories and reminded me of how many bottles of strawberry milk I consumed.
Soft serve ice cream. Cookies and cream. If you like any of these sweet treats, then you need to get this purple milk tea immediately. Not a lot of people know what taro is, but don’t let the name of this unique vegetable discourage you from ordering this drink—you will regret it.
If you’re anything like the Gilmore girls, who basically need coffee every single day in order to survive, this is your match.
It’s not too difficult to guess what the other main ingredient is beside the tea base. Almond milk has become a popular alternative to drinking dairy milk, so a large number of you will be in favor of this one.
One of my roommates also said that it sort of tastes as if it had some coconut flavor (personally, I didn’t notice), so just to be on the safe side, ask a friend to get this drink for you to taste test if you really dislike the taste coconut.
Similar to the purple color of Taro Milk Tea, the orange color of this flavor is equally as unusual as it is delicious. If you’ve eaten at a Thai restaurant before, you might be familiar with Thai Tea. If so, I recommend getting this milk tea version. It’s also the perfect eye-catching drink to post on Snapchat to make all your friends hella jealous.
As someone from Southern California, where it feels like a heatwave 24/7, I personally think this is the best milk tea to have—especially with how refreshing it is. You’ll feel like you’ve been brought back from the brink of death during the summertime. And I’m a fan of honeydew melons, so there’s also that.
If the bubble tea isn’t to your liking the first time around, don’t be discouraged; you should take a look online (or Yelp!) to see if there’s another place that makes milk teas in your area. Each place can have a different style of making these or can use different ingredients. Either way, there are plenty of other flavors to try if you weren’t 100% satisfied with your first choice.
If you’re ready to go on a bubble tea run, it’s always better going with a friend or two or three—mainly to tell them to get different flavors so you can be THAT friend who snags a sip of what they get.
