Pearls serves dozens of beverages including milk teas, bubble coffees and fruit teas.

Bubble tea, which is originally from Taiwan, gets its name from the black tapioca pearls that sit at the bottom of the drink.

Customers can also add extras while being able to adjust the sweetness and quantity of ice.
