Summer is in full swing, and the thermometer is hovering in the triple digits day after day.
One way to cool off is with a glass of refreshing boba tea.
Also known as bubble tea or pearl milk tea, this beverage often is made with milk tea or flavored tea, ice, and chewy tapioca pearls that are shaken together and served with a wide straw—all the better to capture and enjoy every last tapioca pearl.
