  Boba is a Taiwanese beverage that has taken New Tampa by storm. Boba shops are opening up left and right, including Boba Cup, Boba House, Kaleisia, and Chewy Boba Company.  

   Boba itself is Tapioca Pearls which are boiled until soft and then mixed with honey for a sweet flavor. It’s then poured into a milk tea or smoothie. Boba can be “exploding” or filled with juices that pop in your mouth when you bite down.  

   “I love BobaCup,” says Graysen Panganiban, 11. “They have lots of good flavors and their decorations are always cute.”
