What is bubble tea?
Bubble tea, also known as boba tea (or simply boba) is a drink that typically consists of a tea base with tapioca pearls. Tea bases can include a wide variety such as black tea, green, and oolong, while milk and other sweeteners and fruits can also be included for flavor.
Tapioca pearls are chewy balls made from tapioca starch. They have a slightly sweet taste but are more well-known for the sticky and bouncy texture they add to drinks. Because of their size, larger straws are used to drink anything with tapioca pearls inside.
There are several varieties and customizations that can be made to bubble teas, such as using bursting bobas (that come in many flavors) and using different fruits or different types of milk to fit whatever flavor someone might like.

What does the name “TSAOCHA ” mean?
“As the story goes – there was a group of people that found it extremely difficult to be able to drink a good cup of pure tea which not only tasted great but consisted of pure/natural ingredients. Therefore, this group decided to make “A Pure Cup of Good Tea” which was similar to the pure tea they desired, and they decided to establish a milk tea shop they liked.”
Due to the near-paranoid pursuit of pure tea, the founders seemed to have created a “Holy Land of Mike Tea”. Now, many are dedicated to making this pilgrimage to obtain fresh bubble tea. (Note: The word “TSAO” in “TSAOCHA” is “pilgrimage” and “CHA” is “TEA”)
