You may not know this, but the world of tapioca is very cutthroat. And it looks like a new competitor has emerged in the battle for boba dominance: Nolita's Bar Pa Tea, which is serving tea-flavored soft serve with tapioca pearls. The spot opened in July, and New Yorkers have been going bananas over these delicious concoctions ever since.
You can opt in for black tea or oolong flavored soft serve, topped with tapioca pearls, pretzels or ice cream. Or, you can get a traditional matcha tea and drop in a scoop of ice cream for a tasty float experience.
What's next, boozy bubble tea? We give it a couple of weeks.
