Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Are the tapioca pearls gluten-free?

Yes, in a nutshell. Tapioca is a starch derived from cassava root, a South American tuber. It is a gluten-free starch alternative to wheat and other grains.

What is the difference between milk tea and fruit tea?

The most common type of bubble tea is milk tea. It depends on the recipe, but it can include non dairy liquid or powdered creamers to whole milk, or alternative milks to condensed milks. Fruit tea also varies, as there are milk-based fruit teas. Fruit teas, on the other hand, are usually infused with real fruit or have fruit syrup added to them. Consider your standard passion fruit or mango teas combined with a black tea or green tea base.

Are all the above boba tea shops halal?

Yes, the majority of the boba tea shops around Malaysia are halal certified.

It is said that drinking bubble tea is not healthy. Is that true?

While claims have been made that tapioca pearls contain traces of acetophenone and styrene, a study found that “compounds in the tapioca are actually chemicals used in food flavourings and are approved for use by the FDA.” While this does not necessarily imply that they are toxic or pose a serious health risk, the real concern is the starchy tapioca pearls, which consume a lot of carbohydrates and an increasing amount of sugar and sweetened creamers. Any excessive sugar consumption can result in an unhealthy diet. Consume everything in moderation, as doctors advise. We strongly advise seeing a healthcare professional or practitioner if you have any health concerns or questions.

How are bubble teas made?

Boba is extremely simple to make! The most traditional boba flavor is Hong Kong style black milk tea. All you need are three ingredients to make this. Black tea, preferably loose leaf tea, milk or creamer, sweetened condensed milk is popular, and tapioca pearls.
