Question: What is boba?
To answer WokAndSpoon : Those little balls on the bottom of the milk tea are called boba or Tapioca balls balls. :D Places have been springing up all over Southern California for years now. I love the mini ones. Yum. Above is my partially full drink from Lollicup. On the bottom it states, "Please drink slowly to avoid choking ...!" Yikes I just looked up the nutritional value and it's 440 calories for 16 fluid oz of boba milk tea. Wah I cry inside.
