I would say the first time I have ever heard of Bubble Tea was when I visited one of the nearby malls that are about an hour away from the Berkshires. I will say though depending on the flavor you get, bubble tea has a very interesting but delicious taste to it!

It has many varieties and flavors, but the two most popular varieties are pearl black milk tea and pearl green milk tea ("pearl" for the tapioca balls at the bottom).
