In search of:
Boba, or Bubble Tea, tapioca pearls to make my own bubble tea.
I searched 4 stores in NJ (Mitsuwa, H Mart, Thai grocer, and another big Korean store on route 4) with no luck. I searched in Flushing a little and Chinatown a little.
I can buy them online on amazon or ebay or bobateadirect.com, but they want ridiculous shipping. A 5 pound bag of pearls is $7.50, but they want $10 for shipping. $17.50 is ridiculous for pearls.
So does anyone know where I can buy these in a store anywhere in NJ, Queens, or Manhattan??
