Black Tapioca Pearls
Our black tapioca pearls are the perfect "bubbles" in bubble tea, and can also be used in desserts. Also known as boba, black tapioca pearls are small, round balls made from tapioca starch - sweet and somewhat gummy. These are the same boba pearls as those used at gourmet bubble tea shops.
In the 1980s, one Taiwanese tea stand had the bright idea of adding tapioca pearls to their frothy tea drinks to create imaginative and tasty beverages. Because these drinks had bubbles at the top (the froth) and at the bottom (the pearls), they became known as bubble tea. Bubble tea is especially popular in Taiwan, although it is also enjoyed all over the world.
Black tapioca pearls can be added to pretty much any drink to make bubble tea: green tea, black tea, fruit-flavored tea mixes, and even coffee. Bubble tea can be served hot, cold, sweetened, with cream, with milk, or plain. However, the essential element of this versatile drink is the black tapioca pearls that sink to the bottom.
Bubble tea is also known as boba tea, boba drink, pearl tea, black pearl tea, pearl milk tea, and tapioca tea. We also sell bubble tea straws, which are the perfect size to suck up these boba pearls from the bottom of your cup.
1. Boil 8 cups of water.
2. Slowly stir in 1 cup of tapioca pearls.
3. Turn heat to medium and boil for 25 minutes without lid (stir occasionally).
4. Turn off heat, put on lid, and let sit for 30 minutes.
5. Rinse with cool water until tapioca pearls cool down.

“I ordered these on Wednesday and they arrived quickly on Saturday afternoon. I was so pleased with the packaging and my other items. Once I got home from work I immediately set to work cooking the boba as per the instructions on the product page. They needed a little longer than a half hour to soak in the end, but after that small recipe tweak they were perfect. I made boba iced coffee and it was delicious. Thank you!”

“This was a nice treat I had today. Something I had never heard of. The "nuts.com" know a lot of things and I am learning new things from them every time I order. My last order included thai tea, black tapioca and bubble straws. I can't believe the size of the bubble straws, but you really need them. I made my first bubble tea and it was very good. Thanks again, Maxi”

“These arrived so quickly, especially since I ordered them around the Christmas holiday. I'm in the process of cooking them as I type. The packaging is awesome!”

“The products came super fast. Overnight, basically. However, why were there no directions on how to prepare any of the products. For someone using the tapioca pearls and teas for the first time, with now directions how do you expect me to do it right without researching the products. But we made a batch by following some directions on the internet. But there should have been directions on how to prepare the products on the packages.”
