Meet our take on a favorite guilty pleasure—boba tea
Our mission is to create delicious, dessert-inspired, guilt-free teas so you can indulge in a decadent treat at any time. We’ve made teas that taste like cinnamon rolls, red velvet cake, and macarons—so we decided to try to make a tea blend that captures the addictive experience of our favorite boba tea drinks!
WHAT IS TRADITIONAL BOBA TEA?
There’s nothing like a delicious iced boba tea as a treat. The origin of boba tea is in Taiwan—it's an iconic Taiwanese tea drink with milk and small round tapioca pearls. Boba has become a favorite for people around the world. But is boba tea healthy? Not exactly: a 16 oz. serving of boba can have up to 440 calories, over 200 from fat, and upwards of 300% of the recommended maximum daily intake of sugar. So we wanted to make a tea that had that unique boba tea taste but without all the calories and sugar, recreating the boba experience in a guilt-free way.
We’re excited to have a healthy tea inspired by boba flavors so everyone can get their boba fix without worrying about a sugar crash.
What is Pinky Up Boba Tea made of?
To create our boba-inspired tea blends, we focused on four delicious flavors and used natural, whole ingredients. Brown Sugar is a classic boba flavor, with black tea and a hint of creaminess from coconut milk sweetened with monk fruit. Butterfly and Mochi Ice Cream both feature green tea and butterfly pea flower which are rich in antioxidants. Mango Guava contains herbal rooibos with mango, guava, and papaya for a tropical, caffeine-free option.
We even included pre-cooked mini tapioca pearls in all the sachets—mostly because they’re cute.
How to make our boba tea
Best of all, our boba tea sachets are so easy to brew.
The pyramid sachet leaves plenty of room for the whole ingredients to expand as they steep so you get all the boba tea flavor, and once you’ve made your tea you can pour it over ice and add milk if you want.
