004 - Boba/Bubble Tea

   

We explore the unique pearl of Asian American culture that is boba/bubble tea. We’ll take a look at its origins, hear folks from all over the country sharing their experiences with it, learn about some cool boba businesses and projects, and figure out what people across the country are calling it: from boba to bubble tea and a slew of other names in between.

Below is a graphical representation of the boba/bubble tea name survey.

The disproportionate presence of California transplants among respondents may have affected the preference toward the term "boba" in the states of Georgia, Maine, Massachusetts, South Dakota, and Utah.
