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

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

Like bubble tea bread
例如,泡泡茶面包

泡泡茶火锅

56

and back then, they were more like cafes than today’s buy and go

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

in a video about bubble tea?

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

Also, pearls lacks vitamins, mineral content, and fiber

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

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

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

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