泡泡茶

11
00:00:16,840 –> 00:00:19,280
The drink that we know, love and crave for
泡泡茶。大家认识,又爱又渴望的饮料

12
00:00:19,280 –> 00:00:23,160
I’m sure you already know that bubble tea is a drink
that originated from Taiwan
你们应该知道泡泡茶是源于台湾的饮料

13
00:00:23,160 –> 00:00:25,840
and it often comes with pearls or other toppings
通常带有珍珠或其他配料

14
00:00:25,840 –> 00:00:28,840
But do you think you know everything about bubble tea?
但你认不认为自己知道泡泡茶的一切知识?

15
00:00:28,840 –> 00:00:30,680
Well whether you think you do or not
不管你知不知道

16
00:00:30,680 –> 00:00:34,160
I have some fun facts about our favourite drink that will definitely shock you
我有一些有关我们最喜欢的饮料的趣事,一定会吓到你

17
00:00:34,920 –> 00:00:36,120
Hey, this is yours
嘿,这是你的

18
00:00:36,120 –> 00:00:36,960
Thank you
谢谢

19
00:00:40,040 –> 00:00:44,000
I have always thought that the word “bubble” refers to the pearls in the drink
我一直以来都以为,泡泡茶里的“泡泡”指的是饮料里的珍珠

20
00:00:44,000 –> 00:00:47,080
That’s why it’s also known as pearl milk tea, right?
所以它也被称为珍珠奶茶,对吗?

21
00:00:47,280 –> 00:00:48,800
That’s actually incorrect
那是不正确的

22
00:00:48,800 –> 00:00:52,320
The “bubble” is actually the froth that you get from shaking the drink
“泡泡”指的其实是摇饮料时产生的泡沫

23
00:00:52,520 –> 00:00:53,920
According to the internet
根据互联网

24
00:00:53,920 –> 00:01:00,040
the most authentic bubble tea is actually made with freshly brewed
black or green tea, milk and sugar
最正宗的泡泡茶是用新鲜泡制的黑茶或绿茶,鲜奶和糖制成的

25
00:01:00,040 –> 00:01:03,280
and then you shake everything with ice in a cocktail shaker
然后用鸡尾酒调酒器和冰块摇一摇

26
00:01:03,280 –> 00:01:06,600
Shaking the tea gives it a bubble froth on top of the drink
把茶摇一下会产生一些泡沫

27
00:01:06,600 –> 00:01:09,800
That’s how the drink got its namesake, the “bubble” tea
“泡泡”茶就是这样取名的

28
00:01:11,680 –> 00:01:15,720
In fact, the most original bubble tea doesn’t even contain pearls
其实,正宗的泡泡茶是没有珍珠的

29
00:01:15,720 –> 00:01:18,440
This is a misconception that a lot of people have
这是个很多人都有的误解

30
00:01:18,440 –> 00:01:21,560
That’s why the server always asks “do you want pearls?”
所以服务生都会问“你要不要珍珠?”

31
00:01:21,560 –> 00:01:24,040
if you don’t specify that you actually want them
尤其是你没指明想要

32
00:01:24,040 –> 00:01:28,280
Of course, if you tell them pearl milk tea or 珍珠奶茶
当然了,如果你说你想要珍珠奶茶

33
00:01:28,280 –> 00:01:30,280
you will get the pearls automatically
你自然会有

34
00:01:30,280 –> 00:01:33,280
So remember to be specific the next time you get bubble tea
所以记得下次买泡泡茶时,要明确的说出选择

35
00:01:35,400 –> 00:01:39,000
There are two common tapioca ball sizes we see these days
我们比较常见的珍珠大小有两个

36
00:01:39,000 –> 00:01:41,040
big pearls and mini pearls
比较大的和迷你的

37
00:01:41,040 –> 00:01:43,880
Sometimes, it feels like the big ones are the OG
感觉上,大的是正宗的

38
00:01:43,880 –> 00:01:45,680
and the mini ones are the special ones
小的是特别的

39
00:01:45,680 –> 00:01:49,520
cos the bubble tea auntie always asks me if I want to change to the minis
因为卖我泡泡茶的阿姨都会问我想不想换成小珍珠

40
00:01:49,520 –> 00:01:55,200
Actually, the term 珍珠奶茶 came about because
small pearls were originally used
其实,珍珠奶茶的由来是因为大家都用比较像小珍珠的珍珠

41
00:01:55,200 –> 00:01:59,760
It’s only when some guy decided to
make big pearls and called them “boba”
是有人突然想做大珍珠才有大的,而且叫波霸

42
00:01:59,760 –> 00:02:00,920
Sounds familiar?
耳熟?

43
00:02:00,920 –> 00:02:05,400
“boba” or 波霸 is actually slang for big breasts in Taiwan
波霸在台湾其实是大胸部的俚语

44
00:02:05,400 –> 00:02:09,480
That’s why you also have people calling this boba milk tea
所以也有人称这为波霸奶茶

45
00:02:09,480 –> 00:02:12,120
Wow, I wonder where he got that from
哇,他是怎么想到的

46
00:02:13,080 –> 00:02:16,920
I think it’s safe to say that bubble tea has taken the world by a storm
我想我们可以说全球都为泡泡茶疯狂

47
00:02:16,920 –> 00:02:17,840

Numerous bubble tea chains have popped up
around non-Asian countries like Europe and America
好多专卖泡泡茶泡泡茶的连锁店都出现在非亚洲的国家里

51
00:02:29,640 –> 00:02:33,840
International students no longer have to suffer months
of cravings while abroad
在外留学的学生不需要在忍受数月的渴望

52
00:02:33,840 –> 00:02:35,440
What’s even more interesting
有趣的是

53
00:02:35,440 –> 00:02:38,120

非饮料产品的出现

Like bubble tea bread
例如,泡泡茶面包

56

So many stores are open today, with so many chains

71
00:03:27,720 –> 00:03:31,280
So it’s only natural that their business tactics also level up

but it also means I weep for my wallet every time

94
00:04:40,880 –> 00:04:44,000
But actually, bubble tea is really easy and cheap to make

96
00:04:46,640 –> 00:04:48,480
boil them in water and sugar

Did you think I wasn’t going to mention anything about calories
in a video about bubble tea?
你以为我不会在一个关于泡泡茶的影片里提到卡路里?

100
00:05:00,120 –> 00:05:05,200
Even without toppings, the tea itself can contain a ton of sugar
and artificial flavors
就算不加配料,茶里也会有很多糖分和人造香料。

On top of that, this cup of pearls adds up to more than 100 calories
况且,这杯里的珍珠就含有超过一百卡路里

102
00:05:10,320 –> 00:05:13,640
Your drink could very easily add up to over 300 calories!

Also, pearls lacks vitamins, mineral content, and fiber

104
00:05:18,160 –> 00:05:21,800
It only provides a huge amount of empty carbohydrates

105
00:05:21,800 –> 00:05:26,040
Because of this, you’re likely to become
constipated after consuming boba

109
00:05:38,560 –> 00:05:41,960
the general perception of bubble tea is that it’s not very healthy
大家对泡泡茶的一般看法是它不健康

110
00:05:41,960 –> 00:05:44,920
as it’s traditionally made with artificial ingredients

111
00:05:44,920 –> 00:05:46,080
the tea isn’t fresh

00:05:46,080 –> 00:05:48,120
and there’s a lot of sugar used
用的糖又多

00:05:48,320 –> 00:05:50,200
But it can be healthy

114
00:05:50,200 –> 00:05:53,800
especially with the increased customizability that stores now offer
尤其是现在的店都能让你自行搭配

115
00:05:53,800 –> 00:05:56,160
Here are some of the things that you can do
以下是有些你能做的

116
00:05:56,160 –> 00:05:58,960
1, ask for lower sugar content

117
00:05:59,200 –> 00:06:00,800

最好是低脂肪或脱脂奶来取代非乳脂奶精

00:06:22,000 –> 00:06:24,840
and if you really crave for the sinful versions

126
00:06:25,520 –> 00:06:28,120
I guess you can afford a cheat day every now and then

But it’s healthy!
