Milk tea, sometimes called bubble tea, is a popular drink originating in Taiwan. The drink consists of black or green tea that’s been sweetened with sugar and then combined with flavoring, usually in the form of powder or syrup, and milk or cream from one of several different types of dairy products, including regular milk, evaporated milk, condensed milk and sweetened condensed milk. The addition of bubbles to the drink’s name refers to the chewy tapioca pearls that are added to the drink along with other toppings such as fruit or crushed nuts.
1) Weight loss
Boba tea is a type of milk tea that consists of black tea, milk, and sweetened tapioca balls. It is not considered healthy due to the high level of sugar in tapioca balls. Milk tea has been associated with weight loss because it contains polyphenols and L-theanine that can increase levels of serotonin and dopamine.
Serotonin can make people feel more satisfied while dopamine promotes feelings of pleasure. Theanine also helps to promote relaxation by reducing cortisol levels in the body, which in turn boosts weight loss efforts.
However, boba tea does not contain these health benefits because the sweetness often outweighs the natural caffeine content found in black tea. Sweetened tapioca balls are typically made from white flour, brown sugar or honey syrup, maltose syrup and cornstarch. These ingredients will cause weight gain when consumed on a regular basis.
When consuming boba tea try choosing flavors such as chrysanthemum or rose blossom that are less sugary than traditional boba flavors such as mango or strawberry.
2) Energy boost
People drink milk tea for various reasons. Some drink it to get an energy boost, others drink it to soothe a sore throat. Regardless of the reason you’re drinking milk tea, there are three benefits that you might not know about.
First, milk tea can be a great way to hydrate your body and stay healthy. The milk in the tea contains antioxidants which help protect your cells from free radicals and other damaging substances.
Second, if you’re lactose-intolerant or allergic to dairy products, you can still enjoy milk tea because many bubble tea catering shops offer sugar-free options as well as soy and almond milk options that are lactose-free! Third, drinking milk tea can be an enjoyable social activity with friends or family members.
3) Bone health
Bubble tea catering is a great choice for those who are looking for a sweet, refreshing beverage that will also give you an opportunity to improve your bone health. Milk tea and boba tea are both excellent sources of calcium, which is essential for maintaining strong bones. In addition to milk tea, ginger tea is also an excellent source of calcium and helps with digestion – plus it tastes so much better than milk! These two drinks combined provide two servings each of dairy and dark leafy greens, which can help lower the risk of osteoporosis as well.
