What is Yuzu?
Yuzu is a fruit that originated in China but is now grown mainly in Japan. The fruit itself resembles an ugly lemon. It has a sharp citrus flavor that tastes like a combination of lime, lemon, and mandarin. Because of its intense flavor, it is not eaten as-is; most people pair it with sweets to tone down the tartness.
How Much Caffeine Is in Electric Yuzu Tea?
The type of tea you use determines the amount of caffeine in your electric yuzu boba.

Assam tea has between 60 and 112 mg of caffeine per cup, so one serving of electric yuzu bubble would provide between 15 and 28 mg of caffeine.
Does Yuzu Have Any Health Benefits?

Why Is Electric Yuzu Tea Blue?
Electric yuzu bubble tea from Bubbleology is blueish-green because they use blue food coloring to make this tea drink. Yuzu paste itself is yellow, so when it mixes with the blue food coloring, it creates a unique ‘electric’ color for this bubble tea. The blue food coloring is optional and does not change the taste of the bubble tea. Leaving it out will make your electric yuzu tea yellow instead of blue.
