Bobas are currently all the rage, and from the small mom and pop shops to the local Lollicup, they’re here to stay. Boba, Bubble Tea or Pearl Milk Tea; the drink may have many names but it always has the same great taste.  Now, with the use of Big Train’s Taro flavored powdered blended creme mix (from our Dragonfly line) you can make a delicious version of boba from the comfort of your own home.

Taro is a staple of Asian cultures. Its taste can be described as a cross between vanilla nut and sweet buttery kettle corn. If you love boba drinks, wait until you try a Taro Milk Tea boba drink!
