  1. Happy New Year!!!!!!

    60 recipes! I’ve never had boba tea but I want to try it so bad. And I love that the name is also explained. The illustrations are the frosting on the cake- I love that anime style!

    And thank you for your comment! That’s the highest compliment 🙂

    • Happy New Year to you too, Greg!!

      I can’t tell you a recipe in this book that isn’t tempting, and the cute illustrations that accompany them certainly make them even more inviting!

      P.S. My comment was sincere, you deserved the praise 👏🏻

    • This is what got me interested in this book in the first place, the fact that I have always been fascinated by bubble tea and yet I have never tried it before. Now, not only I know more about it, but I definitely want to try different kinds!
