What are these so called "bubble teas"???

My Comments: Tired of yur normal drinks? I sure as hell am! Well, how about sucking on some big tapioca balls [pearls]? If you haven't heard, there's a humongous drink craze going on right now, in huge Chinese communities. It's bubble tea, as known as "Boba Nai Cha" in Cantonese. "Boba," as it is pronounced in Cantonese, is a slang for the female *ahem* chest area... But that ain't how it's so popular..caz it's as popular with females as males. My cousin (aka Suzystretch)first introduced me to it. Then my sis got hooked to em too, so it wasn't hard to get myself addicted to em. I had never heard of it b4, but apparently it's from Taiwan. I'm born in Canada (I AM CANADIAN!!! YAH!!!), so how should i know bout them? Originally, (like 5 years ago), there were only a few bubble tea places here and there in the Richmond area, by Vancouver, B.C., Canada, but now there are more than one on every block in Richmond (not all of Richmond, within 5 to 10 KM of No. 3 Road and Cambie)! Now even in Burnaby, Coquitlam, Surrey, Vancouver, etc., they have sprung up magically from under the ground (just kidding, people actually had to build bubble tea places, believe it or not!). Bubble tea is pretty much sweetened drinks with chewy, soft, gelatin-like tapioca balls. But these tapioca balls aren't the tapioca balls from pudding at a Chinese restaurant. They're big. And that's what's so great about them! They're as big as marbles, and they've made huge straws, usually in bright colors, to the size of the balls. So you suck them up, one by one, and chew up the balls! It's both a beverage and a snack in one!

The drink is served hot or cold, but I dun really like warm bubble tea. I like it ice cold, even in winter. The standard flavour is just milk tea, but i'd much rather have VANILLA or some other yummy flavour. Condensed milk is used as a sweetener, as it is popularly used in Asian desserts. Most bubble tea places will have over 15 flavours to choose from (Have i mentioned that my fav is vanilla?).

Go to one of these bubble tea places, n' u'll see long line-ups (at the good bbt places of course) of people waiting to order bubble tea. Kids like em, adults like em. You would think that only Chinese people would drink it, but i know some people of other races who are addicted to it too! I dun think this craze will calm down for a looooong time. Newayz, they're fun and yummy. Did i mention that my fav flavour is vanilla? Suzystretch's fav is strawberry without milk from Little Tea House (the largest chain of bubble tea stores in Canada)...and i've been advised by one of my best friends not to try Green Apple Mint from Fair Bee...he says it tastes much more nasty than it sounds...HA! i think it sounds bad enough! Well, now ya know ALL about bubble tea, need to know nemore about it, then e-mail me and ask!

Samantha's Comments: A couple years ago I took a vacation to Hawai'i, and -yup; it's all over Honolulu! (ya know, the Asian cultural influence there..) Anyway, the Hawaiians call it "Mo- mi"... the Hawaiian word for the drink. The first syllable (or word) is pronounced like Mo' in the term "Mo' money". ...the second syllable is pronounced, as I'm sure you can imagine, like the word "me". Thus, it's not pronounced like "mommy". Unfortunately I was not able to get a translation of the word because the people that sold and consumed it were Asian, and I forgot to ask one of the native Hawaiians.. :-P
Now for a diversion.... After I grad'd college in 93 (Yikes, time flies..!) and moved back home to LA, my Taiwanese friend Peggy introduced it to me, and I got hooked, of course. I first knew of it as the fourth name on the list of names for it: "Boh- Pah- Nie- Tzah"... when there was no name for it in English so I had to learn to say it right in Taiwanese! Somewhere around '97 was when we discovered flavors other than the original, and my fave to this day is the coconut one. YmMmMm!
