Some people refer to boba pearls as bubbles, which sit at the bottom of the tea. These bubbles, or boba pearls, are made of tapioca and are often flavored, adding a new dimension to your bubble tea.
There are many types of boba that can be infused with different kinds of flavors.
People are getting more and more acquainted with the huge variety of resulting boba tea flavors and different types of boba pearls.
But there are still so many, we bet you don’t know about all of them.
Here we will discuss golden boba and how you can make some from the comfort of your own home!
Let’s get straight into it!
Golden boba is a type of tapioca pearl that is flavored. Tapioca pearls are naturally clear boba but can be infused with different flavors, giving them different colors.
Golden boba is infused with honey, which gives them a golden color. Sometimes though some producers simply add coloring to the tapioca boba pearls to make them appear golden, without adding honey flavoring to the clear boba.
Another example of flavored boba would be brown or black boba. These are infused with brown sugar, giving them a darker brown color.
By the way, by using boba in this context we mean the boba pearls, which are an essential component of bubble tea. However, people sometimes refer to bubble tea as simply boba, or boba tea.
This creates great confusion, so make sure to learn more about this in our bubble tea vs boba post!
Golden boba is sweet, tastes like honey, and is chewy!
However, once added to your bubble tea, the golden boba results in a well-balanced drink. The tea and creaminess of the milk blend well with the sweetness of the golden boba pearls.
That is unless you have a sweet tooth and opt-out of adding even more sugar!
Which we recommend doing only once in a blue moon as added sugar is not so healthy!

Golden boba is a type of tapioca pearl which is chewy and tastes like honey. Crystal boba is made of konjac instead of tapioca, which means a more bouncy and gelatinous texture.
Golden and black boba are types of flavored tapioca pearls. The black color in the black boba is created by adding caramel coloring or brown sugar, whereas golden boba is honey-flavored, giving them a golden color.
However, some people might add coloring agents in the golden boba for aesthetic purposes only.
No, it’s not. The boba itself does not have gelatin. This is because tapioca balls are made of tapioca starch, and the tapioca starch comes from the cassava root. However, honey is not vegan! You could opt to use maple syrup instead; however, maple syrup in some cases is not vegan either!
Whether boba is vegan or not is a nuanced question that depends on which boba toppings you choose from.
