Bubble Tea with Coconut Jelly?

rworange | Jul 27, 2005 01:48 AM

First, does anyone serve this in the Bay Area?

Second, if so, who makes the best?

Looking up boba, the definition from wickpedia says

"Another alternative to traditional bubble tea is to substitute tapioca pearls with coconut jelly, a lighter option. Coconut jelly is served in small Lego-like pieces and have a sweet, crunchy consistency. They add a new dimension to bubble tea and are often ordered "half and half," meaning half pearls and half coconut jelly"

That sounds swell ... crunchy Lego-pieces.

Although I love boba, given the calories, I don't drink it much. But I want to try the coconut jelly version.
