Isn't tapioca the 'defining' feature in boba tea?

This is like selling a car with wheels extra... Come on guys!!!

Is this common around here? How do fellow non FANG devs cope with this?

    I challenge you to find a single place that sells an item with "boba tea" in the name where boba is extra.

    You'll find that they all sell "tea" like "house milk tea", which does not promise boba in writing

    Originally bubble in bubble tea refers to the foam from shaking tea and ice together. Boba had always been extra, until Americans started calling bubble tea boba tea.

    The most infuriating thing is that almost all these places are cash only. Even on fucking Castro in MV many don’t accept card.

      there’s obviously a reason why they’re cash only...tax evasion

      Not sure if tax is true because they give you receipts anyways? It’s more about the fee. Just for reference, check out Square pricing and you’ll know how expensive credit cards are.

    They have to lose out on more customers due to not taking cards...
