Never Before Seen Colour and Flavour Inventions for Pearls (4/18)

The “bubbles” or little chewy tapioca pearls in bubble tea have undergone various transformations, from simply being drenched in brown sugar to give them their classic black colouration in the early days, to being injected with different flavours and colours in recent years. Between 2017 and 2018, places like Hollin and PlayMade came up with freshly made matcha, chocolate, coffee, and even peanut butter flavoured pearls. Homegrown brand LiHo now offers purple taro pearls with its new taro soy latte. For the heath conscious or those who prefer something less starchy, you can replace your pearls with aloe vera, grass jelly or konjac jelly.
