Featured Tea: Boba Tea

Boba, bubble, pearl … Call the tapioca balls found at the bottom what you want, the verdict is the same: Boba tea is fun to say, and drink!

Bubble tea was invented in Taiwan during the 1980s. We’ve been making Boba tea at our three Boulder Pekoe Sip House locations since our doors first opened in 2003.

SIP TIP: At Pekoe Sip House, you can add boba to your favorite cold drink, whatever that may be.

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.

Blended Tea Drinks: A Healthy Indulgence

The end of summer marks a busy time for most people, trying to fit in the last bit of fun and enjoying the hot weather before fall sets in, school starts back up and life becomes more structured. Enjoy a healthy indulgence to boost brain power with our blended tea drinks!


We are still looking for ways to cool down from the intense heat (only a few more trips to the swimming pool!) yet anticipating the cooler weather ahead. As summer comes to an end, we try to prepare for the impending change of seasons while savoring the last flavors of summer.

We try to remain healthy throughout all our summer enjoyments but sometimes feel guilty about not sticking to our health regimens. Residents in Boulder, CO pride themselves on being active and healthy year round, but we also like to have fun and treat ourselves. This time of year calls for “healthy indulgences” – you know, those little things that delight and make you feel spoiled without being junky.

Irresistibly cold beverages from Pekoe Sip House are just what are needed to cool down and refresh after a long bike ride, a hard hike up Mt. Sanitas, or a busy school-shopping trip. It’s important to find the balance in life, and small self-pampering in ways that nurture and support a healthy lifestyle is the perfect way to help achieve that.


There is nothing better than connecting with a good friend after an intense yoga class, a bike ride up Lee Hill, or a climb on the Flatirons over a refreshing, delicious and satisfying icy tea beverage. Here are 2 of our favorite blended tea drinks:

 * A fruity acai smoothie is full of brain-boosting antioxidants, will help keep your mind sharp for the upcoming school year and satisfy your sweet tooth.

 * A frozen Green Buddha blends organic Matcha green tea with indulgent white chocolate. Enjoy Matcha’s amazing health benefits wrapped in decadent premium chocolate.

Now is the time to enjoy a frozen or icy delight because the temperature will change before you know it and you’ll be craving the dog days of summer.
