We can’t suggest Matcha enough for all its health benefits and versatile uses! This energizing tea is rich in antioxidants called catechins, which are known to fight heart disease and cancer. Green tea also increases endurance and enhances fat-burn before exercise. Whisk or blend this health powerhouse as a hot or iced tea in the morning and you will be ready for anything!

Prevent Winter Weight Gain with Tea

In Colorado, we know how to embrace the colder seasons. Vacationers flock to our state for world-class mountains and snow, families visit ski towns during the holidays, and in our foodie hometown of Boulder, the locals warm up with their favorite seasonal flavors.

Prevent Winter Weight Gain with these 9 Teas

The first snow of the season has fallen in Colorado, and as we wake up to the white-capped mountains in the distance, we begin to dream about the epic skiing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing awaiting us in the mountains. We know that the colder weather and shorter days will also bring a special charm to the streets as Boulder prepares for the holidays with twinkling lights.

10 Boba Tea Drinks to Satisfy Every Craving

For the uninitiated, a Boba Tea (also known as Bubble Tea or Pearl Milk Tea) is a combination of tea and milk with tapioca pearls. To make the pearls, starch of the tapioca plant is mixed with water and kneaded into a dough. Small pieces are then broken off, rolled into balls, and laid out to dry. Just before serving, the dry tapioca pearls are tossed into a pot of boiling water and become the sweet, chewy bubbles we all enjoy munching on. At Pekoe Sip House, we prepare our boba fresh every morning to be added to your favorite cold drink.

As we mentioned in our Boba Tea Blog Feature, this exotic tea drink was invented in Taiwan during the 1980s. We have been making Boba Tea at Pekoe’s three Boulder locations since our doors first opened in 2003.

SIP TIP: All Boulder cafe loose-leaf teas can be enjoyed hot, cold, as a latte, or with boba pearls.

Boba Tea - Featured Tea - Boulder Pekoe Sip House

At Pekoe Sip House, we add tapioca pearls to a variety of refreshing iced drinks. A few of our favorites include:

  • Chai Wallah Boba
  • Forbidden Freeze Boba
  • White Strawberry Boba
  • Iced Sunny Green Boba
  • Iced Vanilla Toddy Boba
  • Green Buddha Boba
  • Matcha Doshu Boba

FUN FACT: The straws to drink boba tea are bigger than normal iced tea straws so you can slurp up the tapioca pearls!

If you haven’t tried boba tea yet, be forewarned: Some say the tapioca pearls are an aquired taste due to their chewy texture. Others say you may get hooked after the first drink, insisting no other iced, blended, whipped or slushed drink will every be the same again.
