Originating from Taiwan, boba (also known as tapioca balls or pearls) are made from the starch of the cassava root. They're a sweet and chewy treat usually added to iced tea drinks.

"I decided it was finally time to try to relocate to a new store with 100% autonomy. If we hit our goal, I will open up a new boba shop called "The Labobatory."
