If you’ve never tried bubble tea, a few things to know:

According to Mic.com, it's a "drink that features a base made from tea, fruit, coffee or milk and chewy 'pearls' at the bottom of the cup."

The pearls are called boba, and they're actually balls of tapioca. Tapioca is a starch extracted from cassava root that's naturally gluten-free and typically made into flour, according to the Huffington Post.
