Taiwanese bubble tea is a very popular drink with San Jose’s youth population!  Although bubble tea can be made at home, and bubble tea mixes are commercially available in many Asian markets, most people tend to buy theirs already prepared and ready to drink, from a bubble tea cafe.  Usually selling various snack and lunch foods along with the tea, bubble tea cafes seem to be all over the place!  Here is a list of some bubble tea shops in the San Jose area.
