Boba tea can be made with hundreds of different flavors and combinations, making it difficult to choose a drink. That's why we’ve decided to narrow it down for you, and share the top 5 most popular boba tea flavors.
- Taro Milk Tea
Many people are confused as to what Taro exactly is. Taro flavoring comes from the root of a taro plant, giving it a slight earthy but delicious flavoring. The plant itself looks similar to a turnip or radish, but with its root being more woody and brown.
Our taro flavor in our non-dairy bubble tea gives you a nutty but sweet taste. It is not comparable to many other vegetables, and has its own distinct palate. A natural vanilla undertone can be found when drinking a taro milk tea.
- Classic or Black Milk Tea
If you stick true to the classic black tea flavor, and don't like anything too exotic, the black milk tea will definitely be one of your favorites!
The taste of this is nearly exactly what you would expect, a mild, creamy, and absolutely delicious flavor. The black milk tea is extremely similar to South Asian chai due to its similarities in ingredients. When paired with tapioca pearls and brown sugar syrup, this drink is even more phenomenal.
- Thai Milk Tea
Thai milk tea is another classic, mild flavor just like the black milk tea above. The overall tone and color of the tea is darker, but that only results in a richer taste. This is another flavor that can be commonly found in southeast Asia, and is consumed worldwide.
When getting the boba version of this tea, you’ll find that this is also somewhat earthy, but not in the same way Taro is. It’s smooth and is actually made with various spices such as star anise and cardamom, however the milk tea itself is not spicy at all.
4. White Peach Fruit Tea
White peach fruit tea is an extremely popular choice here at Ma’s Tea House. This flavor gives you an exotic and sweet palate that'll make your tastebuds happy. Its sweetness is not overpowering at all but it sure does do the trick at refreshing you!
Any type of popping boba goes well with this tea, however green apple and strawberry seem to be the most popular choice with it.
- Matcha Green Tea
Last but definitely not least, is matcha green tea. If you’ve ever gotten a matcha flavored drink from another coffee or tea place, you can expect a very similar taste to that! Matcha green tea comes with a delectable, sweet flavor, with an earthy undertone. Matcha is only from the highest quality green tea leaves, and always a pleasure to drink!
This tea goes well with black tapioca boba along with optional brown sugar syrup. If you haven't yet decided what you want to drink, try taking a look at our menu!
