All-natural boba, sustainably produced in Portland, Oregon USA!
The History of Boba: fresh natural boba pearls cooked and uncooked

what is boba?

Boba is a tea-based drink that originated in Taiwan in the 1980s. 

Over time, bubble tea became increasingly popular and as a result, increasingly mass produced. Simple ingredients were replaced with additives and preservatives, especially in the packaged boba available in North America.

We set out to create an all-natural alternative with better ingredients.

We encourage you to read the labels and learn all about the other boba pearls available on the market. 

Most packaged pearls in the states do not mirror the natural, artisanal boba available in Taiwan. Our research found that as global demand increases, simple ingredients are being replaced with preservatives and additives, limiting our ability to source quality packaged products at retail shops.
