The podcast Asian Americana, produced and hosted by our friend Quincy Surasmith, is doing an episode about one of your favorite Asian beverages -- tapioca pearl milk tea -- and they're asking for your help.
Asian Americana has created a survey researching some of your preferences and consuming habits when it comes to boba/bubble tea. What do you call it? How and where do you enjoy it? They want to know. Respond to the survey and enter for your enter for a chance to win a nifty Giant Robot boba/bubble tea pin.
They're looking for responses from all ages, backgrounds and regions (especially outside California), so take the survey and share far and wide. You've got until August 1. Here are some more details:
Boba/Bubble Tea Survey
Asian Americana is doing an episode about the perennial favorite--tapioca pearl milk tea--and we need your help!
We've created a special survey. Whether you call it boba, bubble tea, or something else, I want to learn about how this drink is named and enjoyed all over the country. Share your names, flavors, fillings, and anything unique about the beverage from your area! Everyone is encouraged to fill out the survey, but I especially want to hear from those not living in California's major cities. That includes those living in the Midwest, Southwest, South, Pacific Northwest, Mid-Atlantic, New England, Mountain states, Alaska, Hawaii, and anywhere in between!
I'll then take your results and disaggregate the data by region, ethnic background, age, and all sorts of things to figure out once and for all what people call this drink.
As an extra bonus, I'll giving away some pins from Giant Robot to a few randomly picked winners! Make sure to enter your email at the beginning of the survey if you hope to win! The survey will close Monday, August 1st, so you've got all of July to fill it out and share it widely. Thank you, and may your drinks be delicious!
Take the survey here.
* It's actually just called "Boba/Bubble Tea Survey." I added the "Great National" part to make it sound more grand and exciting. That said, I'm sure the results will yield grand and exciting findings.
