Thank you for the 15 years in Seattle. We're saddened to be leaving the city.
The first Bubble Tea drinks, originating in Taiwan, around 1983, were shaken to mix the flavors. That created a frothy, foamy head with lots of “bubbles” in it!
Yes, about 10% of the drink is tea. However, you can have any drink made without tea, or – with MORE tea.
TAPIOCA (called BOBA or PEARLS). They’re chewy like a soft gummy bear.
The flavored jellies are made from the coconut meat. They’re cooked, diced up and flavored. They’re soft and slightly chewy like tapioca but not as squishy.
No. You can have any drink without any added texture.
Founded by Sheila Locke, a Seattle native and tireless entrepeneur, who sees the glass as less than half full of tapioca and wants to fill up more. The biggest goal for Sheila is to bridge the bubble tea trend to a new level of recognition across a wide range of cultures.
Her success in business is as diverse as Bobachine’s menu. Sheila’s resume includes: starting a record company, two nightclubs, concert promotions, DJ services (she still spins), and twice earning the PRESIDENT’S AWARD for sales and service excellence from the Honda Motor Company. Her vision and energy provides the fuel for Bobachine’s future. Having too many “favorites” to choose from, Sheila recommends trying a different flavor every day and mixing two or three flavors!
