If you've never heard of 'bubble tea' a.k.a. boba before, it is a tea (usually flavored) with tapioca pearls. The tea flavors range from milk tea to passion fruit flavored tea. The tapioca pearls are usually black-colored and chewy fun! As far as I know, Lollicup has the best bubble tea in Boston. I have tried many cafes' bubble tea - including several in Chinatown, however, none compare to Lollicup. The tapioca pearls are always cooked perfectly - firm but chewy. Lollicup also has an extensive menu featuring flavored snows, slushes, and shakes in addition to the normal tea. There are tons of inventive ways to consume those interactive tapioca pearls!
