Tea Zone®, the leading supplier of bubble tea supplies, is gaining more attention through some of its signature products.
Tea Zone’s claim to fame, of course, is its boba and mini boba. Recently, a new craze has delighted American taste buds: Tea Zone’s popping pearls, also known as bursting boba or popping boba.
Tea Zone popping pearls have become somewhat of a spectacle for those who have come across them.

Popping pearls are delicious balls of flavored juice, contained by a thin, gummy-like shell. Once the pearls are bitten, a sudden burst of flavor explodes onto taste buds. The pearls are about 3/8 inch in diameter and the exterior of the pearl is made of seaweed extract.
Samples of popping pearls on top of a vibrantly colored slush were given out to attendees at the NRA Show last May. Some were excited, thinking they were getting a taste of Tea Zone’s well renowned boba. Others at first rejected the free sample, saying they weren’t fans of the round, squishy tapioca balls.
Those brave enough to try were stunned by the sudden burst of flavor.
These pearls are delicious on top of frozen yogurt or inside any tea, smoothie or slush. They come in 13 scrumptious flavors, including: mango, lychee, green apple, orange, passion fruit, strawberry, yogurt, blueberry, cantaloupe, cherry, peach, kiwi and pomegranate.
Popping pearls’ flavors and brilliant colors aren’t the only selling point. Unlike boba, popping pearls do not need to be cooked and there is no preparation needed. All popping pearls from Tea Zone are ready to serve from the jar. This makes popping pearls a fast and easy topping for customers to enjoy.
The craze is catching on to very notable businesses, which are using the popping pearls in various ways, creating their own Asian fusion cuisine without even realizing it.
