They have it at Northlake Mall. We called it "Bobba" (Bow - Bah) in CA. I love honeydew! In Los Angeles they had to put up signs that said "No Bobba Spitting" because people will suck up the tapioca in the straws and spit them at people etc. One day I had to give the spitting a try. It launched like 500 ft! LOL.

Well I can tell you how to make it! Just purchase tapioca pearls in the supermarket where you purchase jello and pudding. Boil them in lots of water.
It's the pearls that make fresh tapioca pudding. Boil them till tender 45 min. drain and rinse and place in refrigerator and add some to your favorite beverage. lol it is easy good luck!

Though the kiosk at Northlake was mediocre...but better than nothing. Would love to have a real storefront somewhere that also serves some food/snacks and a nice assortment of slush/snow and hot and cold teas.

Just had some today at the South Park Mall - place called Jasmine Smoothie World & Bubble Tea. I haven't had it in awhile so it hit the spot, but I think it was better in a place just outside of Fairfax, VA.

I think it was near the Dick's Side of the Mall - area C/G on the map.

If you keep driving up Franklin St. past Lime and Basil, you will find a store called Bubble Chill time (or something like that). All they sell is bubble tea.

Just got back from Seattle where I found a place that takes Bubble tea to a whole different level. Bobachine - Products

I tried the Jasmine Smoothie place at SouthPark and it was ok, but not great.
