During the trip we mostly focused on tea stores, but we did hit up a couple of boba shops. Boba Run was very high on my list; they just seemed to have so many really amazing sounding flavours. This is actually the one my mom got, and I’m glad because it was on my short list too – so I got to try some more than just the one I’d ordered!
Essentially it was kind of like a normal matcha boba – milk based with the standard tapioca pearls. Very fresh, smooth matcha as well. Not sweetened either. Well, that is, not sweetened aside from the many shards of broken up dalgona honeycomb that they topped the drink with. Picture the dalgona candy from Squid Game – exactly that! It was cool because they slowly dissolved into the drink, and as they did they added a little burnt sugar/sponge toffee type flavour that gradually increased the sweetness level.
Very tasty, and also beautiful looking before they started melting into the drink.
