Costco Is Now Carrying This Popular Drink

Boba tea lovers should rush to their neighborhood Costco warehouse.

The chain sells kits to prepare the famed Taiwanese drink at home. This "basically magic" Costco bundle contains enough boba and flavor pouches to brew 10 cups of tea

Taiwan Boba Milk Tea from J Way Foods costs $14.79. This costs roughly $1.50 per cup, far less than buying the drink in a store.

Boba tea must be microwaved in its box for 20 seconds. Mix the flavored powder with two ounces of boiling water.

The Costco 10-pack of boba comprises passionfruit–pineapple green tea with fruity boba, crème brûlée milk tea with caramel boba, classic milk tea with brown sugar

"Each cup tastes nearly exactly like the advertised flavor, and the boba plumps up nicely and softens to a pleasant chewiness in the

microwave," said Naomi Tomky of Food52. It didn't match the tea shop experience, but it was near for a quarter of the cost, and my kids

couldn't tell. If you don't live near a Costco, Amazon and Walmart sell the tea at slightly different costs."

Tapioca balls, which make boba tea famous, were scarce last spring. The warehouse quickly added frozen boba bars, a strong competitor.

While not new, Brown Sugar Boba Ice Milk Bars come in packs of 12 and may satisfy your boba tea appetite.
