Different Kinds of Tapioca Pearls to Try

When you're first introduced to bubble tea, you're told of all the different, delicious flavours and toppings you can explore. Tapioca pearls, popping juice balls and jelly are the three most popular toppings, with the former being the most traditional option out there! It usually doesn't have much of a taste, and is added to milk or fruit bubble tea for texture. But what if we were to tell you there's a whole collection of flavours out there just waiting for you to try?

Here at Manhua Cha, we craft and deliver yummy boba tea kits perfect for you to enjoy at home! We can deliver directly to your door anywhere in the UK, lovingly packaged with a handy bubble tea recipe. You may have already tried black tapioca pearls that have a subtly sweet taste, but did you know there's more?


Green Tea Tapioca

Available as a topping option in our yummy bubble tea kits, green tea tapioca pearls are the perfect choice for milk and fruit bubble tea, as their flavour brings an extra kick. If you're a green tea fan, then this variation is the optimal choice for you, and it tastes great with a range of flavours, such as kiwi or grape fruit tea.

You can purchase all our toppings with a handy boba kit or separately, if you're looking to experiment. Toppings aren't just great in bubble tea; they make for an exciting addition to cocktails, desserts and soft drinks. When sucked up through a chunky bubble tea straw, you can add to the experience even more!


Lychee Tapioca

Lychee isn't a very well-known flavour, but it's a yummy one, nonetheless. As well as serving lychee flavoured fruit and milk tea, we now offer tasty lychee tapioca pearls, adding an extra fruity punch to any bubble tea beverage! These boba pearls taste great with watermelon or strawberry bubble tea, but remember, all tapioca pearls need to be cooked thoroughly before use!

Here at Manhua Cha, we offer fast cook tapioca that can be ready in just five minutes, perfect if you're in a bit of a rush! You can view the rest of our fast cook tapioca options here.

Taro Sago and Colourful Boba

Taro flavoured tapioca pearls cook much faster than the other flavours, and can be ready in just three minutes! Taro is a popular milk tea flavour and has a sort of nutty, vanilla kind of essence. These tapioca pearl variants are extremely tasty, and pair well with the taro milk tea. If you're new to bubble tea, it can be hard to discover exactly which flavour is best for you. Luckily, we have a collection of combinations for you to try out!

Do you like the taste of original tapioca, but want to add something fun to the mix? We now stock colourful boba full of translucent, yummy tapioca pearls! This variant tastes just like regular tapioca, but looks funky in all kinds of beverages. At Manhua Cha, we have a delicious range of flavours and toppings for you to choose from, as well as reusable bubble tea cups and straws if you're an avid fan!
