“Boba is a drink that allows us to savor the different flavors and create various mixes to suit our palates,” senior Salve Duplayna said.

First made in Taiwan in the 1980s, the drink varies from a combination of flavors. From the drinks varying from tea, milk, or shaved ice (snow), along with chewy tapioca balls, popping boba, or flavored jelly. The choices are endless. One of the most popular tea flavors includes Thai tea, Taro milk tea, and Earl Grey milk tea.

“Boba is really good. I like the snow with popping boba,” senior Melissa Jakabs said. “I recommend the peach snow with strawberry popping boba [from Quickly].”

These sweet drinks can also be found at Shave Monster and 32 degrees Ice Shavery and Teas in Rocklin.
