Milk tea can refer to a variety of different teas and tea-based drinks from all over the world.

At its most simple, milk tea usually means a tea with milk in it - although how these tasty beverages are prepared can vary from country to country and region to region.

Tea is a tea drink that comes in different varieties.

One common milk tea though is Bubble Tea which is sometimes referred to as milk tea along with Boba.

Bubble tea is typically made with a tea base to which milk, flavoring, and tapioca pearls are added.

Not all bubble tea is milk tea, but some of the most popular varieties include a milk component.

Some of the most popular bubble tea flavors include honeydew, strawberry, passionfruit, and mango.

Boba is good as a treat and for giving you energy but Boba or Bubble Tea has no real health benefits and drinking too much Bubble Tea or consuming too much Boba can lead to weight gain, obesity and even diabetes.

However in moderation Boba and Bubble tea is okay for your health.

Boba can make you gain weight if you eat enough Boba or drink enough Bubble tea with Boba in it.

Unfortunately, boba itself provides very few health benefits, though its calories and carbohydrates can provide you with a boost in energy.

In most cases, boba tea contains high levels of sugar, which is linked to long-term health conditions like diabetes and obesity.

Boba is safe to eat but if you eat too much Boba it can lead to stomach cramps, bloating and sometimes diarrhea.

Eating and drinking too much Boba could lead to stomach cramps, diarrhea and even possible constipation.

Consuming too much Boba or Bubble Tea can also contribute to constipation by making someone more dehydrated.

You are supposed to chew Boba when eating them to avoid stomach issues, stomach cramps and possible choking.

Be sure to chew the Boba before you swallow them.

When you eat the boba pearls you must chew the boba pearls to avoid stomach cramps and possible choking.

You can either eat the boba pearls or throw the boba pearls away but most people prefer to eat the boba pearls.

You can eat the boba pearls if you want too but you should chew the boba pearls before eating them.

If you do not chew the boba pearls before eating them they can be hazardous and make you choke.

Also you can get a stomach ache if you swallow the boba pearls without chewing them first.

I have chewed and ate the boba pearls and have been just fine.

The standard boba pearls are made from cassava root, which is a starchy tuber that is related to the yam.

Tapioca starch is made from the cassava.

The boba pearls are edible in the bubble tea or Tapioca Pudding etc but always chew the boba pearls before eating them to avoid choking or a stomach ache.

You can buy boba pearls from Walmart, Amazon or Nuts.com
