Ube Boba: Coming Soon
Coming soon to join our popular Brown Sugar boba pearls is our long-awaited new flavor – UBE!
Hooray for Ube!
Ube, or Ube halaya, is a Philippine desert made from the the purple yam aka Ube. Historians have found traces of the plant being used as far back as 11000 BP. Not to be confused with taro, as the main differences between taro and ube are their origin, the shape and color of their roots, and their flavor and traditional uses. Taro is native to Southeast Asia and has white or light purple roots, while ube is native to the Philippines and has purple roots. Taro has a starchy, slightly sweet flavor and is often used as a substitute for potatoes, while ube has a sweet, nutty flavor and is used primarily in desserts and sweet dishes.
