If you haven’t tried the taste of bubble tea, then the best way to find out about it is to get yourself a bubble tea kit. There are plenty to choose from and all will come with everything you need.
Once you’ve tried a few different flavours then you’ll probably want to start making your own bubble tea from scratch without using any starter kit. In which case you’ll still need to get the pearls and tapioca – although when you take the DIY approach then you can play around with flavours to make something really special!
The cheapest kits will only tend to contain once flavour, so you might save in the long run if you buy one with a bit of built in flexibility. Happy Boba!
