If you follow the instructions on cooking boba/tapioca/bubble tea, the consistency and taste is amazing. The only downside is that the pearls tend to crumble in the bag and are generally fragile before they begin to cook and darken. Also, if the water is not hot enough in the beginning, you get the same problem of the pearls dissolving and things getting a bit messy and/or sticky. If you are patient and dedicated, these are the best choice, but if you want a simpler alternative, try the black minute pearls instead. Less delicate, easy to make, and just as tasty in the end, they are a lovely alternative. It's your choice, though. Either way, boba/tapioca pearls are a deliciously addictive addition to most iced drinks, especially milk teas, but also quite a few juices.

I liked the taste and texture. However, one of my packages arrived with the vaccuum broken and the balls had turned to complete dust. I wrote to customer support, but have yet to hear from them.

You have to boil the balls for 30 minutes, covered, let them sit for another 25 minutes, still covered, then rinse them in cold water. Then you coat them in sugar syrup, which you make by simmering equal parts of sugar and water.

When I received the bag about 40 percent of the beads were already crushed to power and the others appeared to be so old that they crumbled thereafter. It was like no version of tapioca I have ever dealt with before.

Second update 3/23/2013. Everyone seemed to like these in our house... I have ordered them 3 times and they were a big hit at our Chinese New Year party. So I placed my fourth order... And got a DIFFERENT PRODUCT! Not just a different brand, a different product! We had received the same brand boba the first three orders and now I received an instant pearl. A few reasons why this annoys me.... First, you find a product you like you want to keep ordering THAT product. Second the instant pearls are damp (precooked?) and therefore most of the 2.2lbs you are receiving is water. The previous boba I received were dry and had 30-40 servings in a package, this order has far less servings. And what do you do with the unused portion? There are no directions regarding what to do with unused product and it doesn't seem like they will keep for long in their wet state.
I am most annoyed about the bait and switch. Three orders of standard 40 minute cook time boba, on the fourth order you send me some instant junk!!!! I have gone from loyal customer to, I will NEVER order again!

Update: I just placed my 3rd order for these. They have come quickly and week packaged each time. My friends and family all love them!

I received these pearls very quickly, just a few days, shipping from one coast to the other. They were seriously vacuumed sealed in thick plastic bag, the package was rock hard it was so snugly vacuum sealed. When I cut he bag the pearls puffed up about 50%. Then the package was wrapped in bubble wrap, put in a small box, then in a cardboard shipping envelope. Needless to say, they were very well packaged! There was some loss from crumbled pearls, but under 5% loss.

The cooking instructions were simple and clear.

These bobba pearls are odd. Here is why. The bag comes airtight, making the product look small. Once opened the air returns and the product returns to a normal size. The pearls are soft and powdery when uncooked, unlike other pearls I have ordered. Uncooked these pearls will even dissolve in your mouth. At first I thought I had wasted my money but after I boiled the pearls they became a normal color and consistency; though they are smaller than others I have ordered. I won't be ordering from this brand again, but it's not a bad buy for the money. Also the cooking instructions were a bit complicated; I bypassed the instructions, boiled the pearls for about 8 minutes and let them sit in the hot water for about 15 minutes more and they were ready.

Pros:
A good amount of product for the money
Taste good after being cooked

Cons:
Uncooked pearls powdery
Pearls smaller than others I've ordered

We recieved this product and once we opened it most of the tapioca balls were powder. I tried to go back online to my account and return and this item was not able to be returned. So we are stuck with a 2.2lb bag of tapioca pearls that are dust.Yuck

When I received this boba, it's already like a powder and not balls. I am very disappointed at this happened.

I cooked this product last night and even though I muddled the directions a little bit, the boba tasted pretty good. You get a good deal for the price.

RECOMMENDED COOKING INSTRUCTIONS:
- Boil water in pot with lid
- Pour some of the boba in (the amount you plan to use, since leaving boba unused for long makes the boba stick together and not as appetizing)
- Put lid on pot and cook boba at MEDIUM HEAT for 15 minutes
- Turn off the gas and let boba sit for a couple of minutes
- Drain the water from the boba
- Run boba under cool water for about a minute, then drain again.
- Mix honey, sugar, or sugar substitute (ex: Splenda) with boba
- Let it cool

My number one tip for ANYONE buying boba is to buy the boba tea power too! That's what makes boba tea taste so good. Trying to make your own at home (like I did) will probably result in disappointment.
