What Does Pixie Boba Tea Taste Like?
Pixie boba tea tastes sweet, with floral and earth tones. The lychee juice brings a floral taste, similar to a strawberry or pear mixed with a hint of citrus. You’ll also taste the sweetness and bite from the vanilla. The tapioca pearls add more sweetness and the green tea adds a touch of earthiness.
Is Pixie Bubble Tea Healthy?
Pixie bubble tea contains several ingredients that have health benefits. Lychee is rich in vitamin C, potassium, iron, manganese, and magnesium. Green tea contains beneficial antioxidants, may help brain function and may help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. Dairy milk contains B vitamins, calcium, and protein.
Combining these ingredients with sugar and tapioca pearls reduces health benefits. Bubble tea is best enjoyed in moderation.
