Sip your way through the summer with these vibrant boba-inspired beverages!

Before its debut in the United States, boba was all the craze in Taiwan! And considering how much of a hit it has been, all signs point toward it being here to stay! Peet’s Coffee is the latest to take the boba plunge with several thirst-quenching beverages. So act fast, as some of these coffees and teas are only available through the summer!

Peet’s Coffee

Peet’s Coffee was founded in Berkeley, California in 1966 and consisted of one storefront. Since then, Peet’s has opened nearly 300 stores in 11 states and most recently expanded to Shanghai, China. The brand is known for dark, espresso-grade roasts that use premium and ethically sourced ingredients. Peet’s is also credited with opening the first LEED gold-certified roastery in the United States! You can now find their rich roasts in 14,000 stores within the US.

Vegan Boba

On June 8, Peet’s Coffee debuted its Summer of Jelly menu! The menu centers around Peet’s Brown Sugar Jelly, akin to vegan boba. The spherical, chewy bits will descend to the bottom of the beverage. In turn, they offer character to an otherwise singular textured drink.

The Brown Sugar Jelly’s subtly sweet flavor can be added to any cold beverage! Select drinks will only be available this summer, but the Brown Sugar Jelly will stick around through the fall and beyond in a couple permanent menu items. The Brown Sugar Cold Brew Oat Latte and the Iced Brown Sugar Matcha Oat Latte are your options from the permanent menu. The cold brew latte is both sweet and bold, while the macha latte is creamy and fragrant. From Peet’s seasonal summer offerings, select from options like their Citrus Green Tea Shaker and the Strawberry Lemon Tea Shaker.
