A Guide to Navigating Graduation With Better Boba

Celebrating Graduation with Boba: A Guide to Gift Giving

Graduation season, means graduation party season is here.  As summer approaches, many find themselves grappling with a perennial question: How much should I gift a high school or college graduate? Additionally, in a world where unique celebrations are increasingly valued, incorporating boba into graduation festivities has become a popular choice. From boba gifts to setting up a boba bar, here’s your comprehensive guide to celebrating graduation with a touch of deliciousness.

How Much Should I Gift a High School or College Graduate?

Choosing the perfect gift for a graduate can be challenging. Whether they’re stepping into the professional world or continuing their academic journey, a thoughtful gift can make their transition memorable. When it comes to determining the appropriate amount to gift, consider factors such as your relationship with the graduate, your budget, and local customs.

  • Consider Your Relationship: The nature of your relationship with the graduate can influence the amount you choose to gift. Close family members or lifelong friends might opt for more substantial gifts compared to acquaintances or distant relatives.
  • Budget: It’s essential to set a budget that you’re comfortable with. Remember, the value of the gift isn’t solely measured by its price tag. A heartfelt gesture or personalized item can be just as meaningful, if not more so, than an expensive gift.
  • Local Customs: In some cultures or communities, there may be customary expectations regarding graduation gifts. It’s worth considering these traditions while deciding on an appropriate amount.
  • Practicality vs. Sentiment: Think about whether the graduate would appreciate a practical gift that aligns with their future endeavors or a sentimental keepsake that commemorates their achievements.

Ultimately, the most meaningful gifts are often those that reflect the graduate’s interests, aspirations, and personality.

The Graduation Party & Boba

Boba, also known as bubble tea, has surged in popularity worldwide with its unique combination of tea, milk, and chewy tapioca pearls. Incorporating boba into graduation celebrations adds a fun and flavorful twist to the festivities. Here’s how you can elevate your graduation party with boba:

  • Boba Gifts: Consider gifting the graduate with a boba-themed present, like Better Boba’s Premium Tea Kits. Each handcrafted, reusable wooden box includes one bag of all-natural classic pearls, a glass boba jar with bamboo lid and stainless steel straw, three premium teas from The Tao of Tea, and recipe cards. ($49.99)
  • Boba Bar: Create a boba bar at the graduation party, allowing guests to customize their own bubble tea creations. Set up stations with various tea bases, milk options, flavored syrups, and toppings such as tapioca pearls, fruit jellies, or boba bubbles. Provide recipe cards or guidance to help guests craft their perfect boba drink.
  • Boba Treats: In addition to traditional boba beverages, consider incorporating boba into other treats and desserts. Serve boba-infused cupcakes, cakes, or ice cream sundaes for a deliciously unique twist.

By infusing your graduation celebrations with boba, you’re not only treating guests to a delightful culinary experience but also adding a touch of trendy sophistication to the festivities. From boba-themed gifts to creating a DIY boba bar, there are countless ways to incorporate this beloved beverage into your graduation party planning.

In summary, the amount you choose to gift a high school or college graduate should reflect your relationship, budget, and cultural norms. When it comes to celebrating graduation, incorporating boba into the festivities offers a fun and flavorful way to mark this significant milestone. Whether you’re sipping on customized bubble teas at a boba bar or surprising the graduate with a boba-themed gift, embracing the boba craze adds an extra layer of enjoyment to the celebration. Cheers to the graduates and their bright futures ahead!

We are excited to announce that our Classic Pearls are now available at The Republic of Tea!

Here are a few other reasons to fall in love with RofT (if you haven’t already):

  • Mindful Living:The Republic of Tea promotes a philosophy of mindful living, encouraging people to slow down and savor the moment through the ritual of tea drinking.

  • Stir one tablespoon of Tablespoon Milk Tea into 7.5 oz of milk or milk alternative.
  • In a separate glass, scoop in the desired boba. 
  • Add ice. Pour the milk tea on top. Enjoy!

What’s in Your Boba? Sourcing a Better Flour for Better Boba

Sourcing a Better Flour for Better Boba

Ever wonder what’s in your boba? Our team recently returned from a 3-week journey across SE Asia to survey Cassava fields and study regenerative farming techniques for tapioca flour – boba’s main ingredient. We viewed the different mills along the Mekong River in Thailand and Laos, examining the environmental impacts on the fishing communities. 

What Is Cassava?

Cassava is grown in various regions across the world, particularly in tropical and subtropical climates. Some of the major cassava-producing regions include Africa (Nigeria, Ghana, Angola), SE Asia (Thailand, Laos, Vietnam) and South America (Brazil, Peru, Colombia). It’s a staple food for millions of people due to its versatility, adaptability to different soil types, and resilience to harsh growing conditions.

There are several varieties of Cassava, but the most common are Bitter and Sweet. Bitter Cassava is the most widely grown variety and is primarily used for its starchy tuberous roots. It contains toxic compounds that must be removed through processing before consumption. Sweet Cassava has lower levels of cyanogenic compounds compared to bitter cassava and is often used for culinary purposes without extensive processing. Ultimately, Cassava is Tapioca Flour.

Tapioca flour is made from cassava roots through a process of washing, grating, and drying. Here’s a general overview:

  • Harvesting: Cassava plants are harvested, and the roots are dug up from the ground.
  • Peeling and Washing: The outer peel of the cassava roots is removed, and the roots are thoroughly washed to remove any dirt or debris.
  • Grating: The cleaned cassava roots are then grated into a fine pulp. Traditionally, this was done manually using a grater, but in commercial settings, machines are often used for efficiency.
  • Pressing: The grated cassava pulp is then pressed to extract the liquid. This can be done using a hydraulic press or by wrapping the pulp in a cloth and squeezing out the liquid by hand.
  • Straining: The extracted liquid is strained to remove any remaining solid particles.
  • Drying: The strained liquid is then dried to evaporate the moisture, leaving behind tapioca starch or flour. This can be achieved by spreading the liquid thinly on flat surfaces or by using specialized drying equipment.
  • Milling: Once dried, the solidified tapioca is milled into a fine powder, resulting in tapioca flour.

Sustainable Farming Practices

As an all-natural brand, it’s important for us to thoughtfully research the ingredients in our products, starting with sustainable farming practices. Understanding how and why food is sourced is vital to supporting the communities who support us. 

Sustainability doesn’t only apply to farming practices but also economics. In Laos, for example, there is a surplus of cassava every year, even after exporting to their largest markets – China and Vietnam. How can we minimize the environmental impact while maintaining economic viability?

At Better Boba, we are focused on the following initiatives to create fair export practices that don’t exploit the local cassava farmers:

  • Supportive Policies and Incentives: Working with local governments to create policies and incentives that promote sustainable farming practices, such as subsidies for organic farming, conservation programs, and tax incentives for renewable energy adoption. This will help offset initial investment costs and make sustainable agriculture more economically feasible.
  • Education and Training: Providing farmers with access to training programs and technical assistance in sustainable farming practices can enhance their capacity to adopt economically viable and environmentally friendly methods.

Your support of Better Boba allows us to continue our mission of offering not just a better product, but a better manufacturing and distribution process. Learn more & let’s be better together!

Boba Drinks: Perfect for Celebrating Lunar New Year!

2024 is the Year of the Dragon, beginning on February 10th, 2024 (Chinese New Year).

In Chinese culture, the Dragon holds a significant place as an auspicious and extraordinary creature, unparalleled in talent and excellence. It symbolizes power, nobility, honor, luck, and success. 2024 is forecasted to bring about opportunities, changes, and challenges. If you’re seeking a shift in your current lives, this year might offer a favorable chance.

The Lunar New Year, also known as the Spring Festival or Chinese New Year, is a dazzling celebration that transcends borders and resonates with joyous vibes across the globe. This festive extravaganza is not just limited to China but is celebrated by various Asian communities, including Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Vietnam, and beyond. As we usher in the Year of the Dragon, let’s embark on a flavorful journey and toast to prosperity with delicious homemade Lunar New Year boba drinks.

Celebrating Unity in Diversity

Lunar New Year marks the beginning of the lunisolar calendar, with festivities often lasting for 15+ days. It is a time of grand family reunions, feasts, and vibrant cultural displays. Families clean their homes to sweep away bad luck and make way for good fortune. Red lanterns, symbolic of prosperity, illuminate the streets, while dragon and lion dances captivate onlookers, ensuring a dynamic start to the year.  As its the year of the Dragon, Lunar New Year takes on extra significance this year.

The beauty of the Lunar New Year lies in its ability to transcend cultural boundaries, bringing people together in a celebration of unity, love, and good fortune. It’s not just about the fireworks and red envelopes; it’s a time to honor traditions, show gratitude, and look forward to a year brimming with positivity.

What’s in a Name: Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year? 

The holiday is celebrated by many names across Asia, including Seollal (Korean Peninsula), Tết (Vietnam), and the Spring Festival (China). 

In Taiwan, most locals and foreign residents call it “Chinese New Year.” However, because so many countries and nationalities celebrate the holiday, others prefer the more inclusive “Lunar New Year.” Additionally, “Lunar New Year” reflects a conscious effort from labeling elements in Taiwan as exclusively “Chinese,” emphasizing the recognition of Taiwan as a distinct country with its own rich culture.

Sip Sip Hooray: Homemade Lunar New Year Drinks

Every celebration deserves a featured beverage! Here are three delicious boba drinks that perfectly capture the spirit of the Lunar New Year:

Golden Dragon Bliss: Turmeric Tapioca Tango

Embrace the vibrant energy of the dragon dance with the Golden Dragon Bliss boba drink. Start with a base of golden turmeric milk tea, a concoction of black tea, condensed milk, and a pinch of turmeric for that extra glow. Add chewy tapioca pearls that mimic the texture of firecrackers, exploding with flavor in every bite. Sip your way to prosperity with this golden elixir that promises good fortune and a dash of spice!

Mandarin Orange Sparkle: Citrus Burst Boba Tea

Celebrate Lunar New Year with a Mandarin Orange Sparkle boba tea. Brew a refreshing blend of green tea and mix it with freshly squeezed mandarin orange juice. Sweeten with a touch of honey or agave syrup for balance. Add orange-flavored popping boba pearls to create a burst of citrusy goodness with every sip. This drink symbolizes good luck and prosperity, with the orange color representing the brightness of the new year.

Lucky Lychee Elixir: Lychee Rose Fusion

Incorporate the sweet and floral notes of lychee and rose into your Lunar New Year celebration. Brew a base of black tea and blend it with lychee puree. Add a hint of rose water for a fragrant twist that symbolizes love and good fortune. Pair it with lychee-flavored boba pearls to create a drink that’s as delightful to the eyes as it is to the palate. 

Tips for Making Boba at Home

  • Perfecting the Pearls: Achieving the ideal boba pearls requires careful attention. Cook them according to the package instructions and don’t forget to let them cool before adding them to your drinks.
  • Ice, Ice, Baby: For an authentic boba tea experience, serve your drinks over plenty of ice. This not only cools the beverage but also enhances the overall texture and feel.
  • Experiment with Sweetness: Adjust the sweetness levels in your drinks to match your preferences. Some enjoy a sweeter boba tea, while others prefer a more subtle sweetness. 
  • Get Creative with Garnishes: Elevate your boba drinks by adding creative garnishes. Consider topping your beverages with edible flowers, mint leaves, or a citrus twist for an extra visual and aromatic flair.
  • An All-Natural Alternative: Most packaged boba includes additives and artificial ingredients. As an alternative, check out Better Boba’s all-natural brown sugar boba – vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, and Kosher with no artificial ingredients!

Toast to Prosperity

As you revel in the festivities of the Lunar New Year, let these homemade boba drinks add a dash of fun and flavor to your celebrations. May each bubble burst with happiness, prosperity, and good vibes. Here’s to a year filled with joy, success, and, of course, a delicious boba! Cheers! Gong Xi Fa Cai!
