Is bubble tea gluten-free?
The straight answer to this question is maybe. The primary components of bubble tea are tea, milk, and tapioca pearls. Teas and milk are generally gluten-free. However, tapioca pearls could potentially contain gluten due to cross-contamination or added flavorings. Therefore, if you have celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity, it would be wise to ask about the ingredients and preparation process before consuming bubble tea.
