Boba is tapioca starch, which comes from the root of the Cassava plant. Before cooking, tapioca balls are dry, powdery and crumbly, like a very dry dough. However, it is actually about 20-25% water. This makes storing the tapioca very important because if improperly sealed, tapioca’s water content will evaporate and the resulting tapioca will be hard and only partially-cooked, not the texture we are looking for!
