Bubble Tea

8 posts in this topic

I was reading up on tapioca since I've been using it alot in my new bread recipe. Apparently in Taiwan, a drink called bubble tea is all the rage. I think you can order it in your bigger cities here in the states and I was wondering if anyone has tried it. It does look good! Kinda funny :P I want to make it now. It has the little tapioca balls that sink to the bottom of the cup (served in a clear plastic cup). Like I need another reason to eat more tapioca. ;)

It's huge in LA. There are Boba restuarants all over the San Gabriel valley, all the cousins on my wife's side are really into it. They go to Boba like my friend and I would go for coffee.

I've tried it, and it was OK, but I never really got into it. I'd rather have a Mocha. :rolleyes:

Thanks for the links Geoff. I have never heard of this drink until today. Can't wait to try it......I'm cooking the tapioca pearls right now.

There are a lot of places that sell it in Vancouver, BC...and it seems to be quite popular. It comes in all sorts of flavours too. I've tried it, and am not a big fan...though I do really like tapioca pudding...just not crazy about big pieces of tapioca. :)

i used to go to university in a smaller town, and there were tonnes of cafes (Bubble Tea cafes) and they also sold it on campus. We were a very Asian oriented city (sorry if that is politically incorrect), which was a reason why. It is SO good.

All of the original info on here is over 6 years old. I would double check any product information that old.

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
