This smaller size is perfect for home use. Tapioca pearls are about the size of small marbles and have a distinctively chewy texture. The texture is very similar to Japanese mochi or gummy bears. If you can cook pasta, rice or ramen noodles then you can definitely cook these tapioca pearls.
Tapioca is the foundation for a bubble tea drink. It is the first thing that customers will judge. Think about it. When most people buy a bubble tea the first thing they do is see how much tapioca was given and if they feel the business is being skimpy. Next they will sip the drink and check the texture of the tapioca.
These are the questions that the customers think about...
"Is it chewy?"
"Is it hard?"
"Is it chewy on the outside and hard on the inside?"
"Is it not chewy at all?"
A perfectly chewy and lightly sweetened tapioca pearl is essential for these customers to buy again. This is sometimes overlooked by businesses.
Bubble Tea Supply takes this very seriously. Our product has to promote repeat customers for the businesses that we supply. We constantly test tapioca from around the world...Taiwan, Philippines, Thailand and even the U.S.A. Time and time again we always end up choosing the same premium tapioca that we've chosen. How do we decide this? Our customers will chastize us if we ever switch.
Our tapioca stays chewy all day.
It's easier to prepare and takes less time.

If we can find a better tapioca pearl then we will definitely offer it but so far we haven't found a better pearl. The proof is in the tapioca. You be the judge.
