Toppings, known as "pearls", such as chewy tapioca balls also known as pearls or boba , popping boba , fruit jelly , grass jelly , agar jelly, and puddings are often added. Ice-blended versions are frozen and put into a blender, resulting in a slushy consistency. The two most popular varieties are black pearl milk tea and green pearl milk tea. Bubble teas fall under two categories: teas without milk and milk teas. Both varieties come with a choice of black, green, or oolong tea, and come in many flavors both fruit and non-fruit. Milk teas include either condensed milk, powdered milk, or fresh milk. Some shops offer non-dairy creamer options as well many milk tea drinks in North America are made with non-dairy creamer.
