The New York Times has recognized that it did not discover bubble tea
That boba in your tea? It’s, uh, been there for a while.
The New York Times issued a revision Thursday after publishing a bizarre article Wednesday about bubble tea called “Those Blobs In Your Tea? They’re Supposed To Be There.” The article itself wasn’t much better, implying that boba — a popular beverage stateside for years — has finally hit it big in the United States. (The headline was changed several times before the follow-up was published, and the story heavily edited.)
