People try boba for the first time.
Also known as pearls, boba are chewy balls made of tapioca.
They are usually enjoyed in milk tea.
- It looks really weird.
- It's never come into my life, I've seen it at restaurants.
- Whenever friends do try it, I'm always hesitant.
- I rarely went to a place that served it,
and then when I was there, I was like
"that looks too weird,
I'm gonna have the chicken I can't pronounce instead."
- This is like, classic boba.
- It's sealed.
- I hope that it tastes like chocolate milk.
(popping)
- It just felt like tadpoles flew in my mouth.
- I don't know how I feel about
but chewing these weird gummy things.
- It's like chewing on a trampoline.
- I'm like, pleasantly surprised.
- The tea is delicious.
- It's very similar to this Indian ja.
- I like it, but I don't get it.
- It's like expecting to get a Game Boy for Christmas,
and then your parents get you a Game Boy Advance.
- I would totally go for this again.
- This looks like a witch's brew.
- I have no idea what taro is.
- Ooh, that's good.
- I really like it, I like it more than the first one.
- It's a floral, kind of sweet potato kind of flavor.
- Sweet but not too sweet.
- Chewing on something matches
the flavor of what's goin' on here.
- I would prefer the tea without the boba.
- [voiceover] Honeydew milk tea?
- This does not look natural at all.
- This is really good.
- Mm-mm.
- (shrieks) Nooo!
- Whoa, that tastes exactly like honeydew.
- So sweet and so sour at the same time.
- It's not overly powerful, it's not too sweet.
- This makes the most sense to chew the balls,
cause you're used to chewing when you eat honeydew.
- I feel like honeydew is done better in boba
than it is like, on its own.
- I'm liking it more and more.
- Maybe I need to go out and start drinking more boba tea.
- It almost makes drinking tea stressful.
- I'm a convert .
- I like the squishy.
- I would drink this now. I'm glad I tried it.
[voiceover] These balls confuse me a ton.
I don't know whether to swallow 'em,
or just like, let 'em hang out in my mouth.
(laughs)
It's impossible not to make jokes about balls
when you're drinking this tea.

影片簡介

大家還記得第一次喝波霸奶茶(Boba Tea)的感受嗎?Q彈的珍珠,加上香醇的奶茶,幾乎是臺灣人解饞的首選,各大手搖飲料店也都會出現它的身影。但沒想到我們習以為常、隨時來一杯的飲料,在外國人的眼裡竟然是...

1tadpole0:46
我們可能很小就學了青蛙的英文,卻不知道蝌蚪要怎麼講。沒錯,蝌蚪的英文就是 tadpole
Look at that little tadpole swimming in the pond. It seems so carefree and happy!
瞧那隻在池塘裡游游的蝌蚪。牠看起來是多麽的無拘無束和快樂啊!


*補充動物形體「轉變」的字詞:
turn into (v.) 轉變成
transform into (v.) 轉變成
metamorphose into (v.) 轉變成、蛻變成
change (n.) 改變、轉變
transformation (n.) 轉變
metamorphosis (n.) 轉變、蛻變
It is amazing to witness a tadpole transform into a frog.
親眼見證蝌蚪轉變成青蛙的過程令人嘆為觀止。

2gummy0:49
在影片裡,這個形容詞的意思是「有黏性的」、「黏牙的」。
People who tried boba for the first time were amazed by its gummy texture.
第一次吃珍珠的人會對它黏軟的質地感到驚訝。


另外,德國有名的「小熊軟糖」,英文就叫做 gummy bear。有時候會直接叫做 gummy ,作為所有「軟糖」的代稱。
Eating too many gummy bears may cause damage to your health.
吃太多小熊軟糖可能會對你的健康產生傷害。


gum 本身為名詞,意思是「牙齦」,所以 gummy 也有 「跟牙齦有關的」、「牙齦的」的意思。
People who are not satisfied with their gummy smile may seek cosmetic dental treatment.
有些人若不滿意他們露出牙齦的微笑會尋求牙醫學美容的治療。


*補充 gummy 的相似詞:
gooey (adj.) 黏稠的
gluey (adj.) 膠質的;黏稠的
sticky (adj.) 黏稠的
The walls are stained by unremovable sticky materials.
這些牆沾滿了無法移除的黏稠物質。

3honeydew 1:24
又名 honeymelon ,指的是原產於法國的「白蘭瓜」,有點類似我們常吃的哈密瓜。
哈密瓜原產於新疆的哈密地區,因此英文就叫做 Hami Melon 。兩者看起來相似,但哈密瓜的甜度比白蘭瓜的甜度略勝一籌。
I gave the new neighbor some homegrown honeymelons as a welcoming gift.
我送給新鄰居一些自家種的白蘭瓜,當作歡迎禮。


至於其他台灣常見的瓜類英文要怎麼說呢? 小編就在這裡整理給大家:
watermelon 西瓜
papaya 木瓜
muskmelon 甜瓜
cantaloupe 甜瓜的一種;美國甜瓜
pumpkin 南瓜
squash 冬瓜

4convert 1:56
在影片裡,這個字是名詞,意思為「改變宗教、觀點、信仰的人」,所以影片裡的從來沒試過珍奶的講者其實就是在說「我現在是珍奶一國的人了」。
After reading the book about industrial meat production, I became a convert to veganism.
自從讀了一本關於工業肉類生產的書後,我成了素食主義者。


另外,這個詞更常見的形式為動詞,意思是「轉換」、「改變」或「(使)改變宗教信仰」
With the help of international restoration work, the war-torn village has been converted into a cultural preservation site.
在國際修復計畫的協助下,這座飽受戰爭摧殘的村莊成了文化保存基地。

5squishy1:57
這個形容詞的意思是「黏糊糊的」、「濕軟的」。
Having walked an entire day amid squishy wetland, I returned home to find my sandals completely destroyed.
在濕軟的濕地走了一整天後,我到家時發現我的涼鞋已殘破不堪。


*補充 squishy 的相似詞:
mushy (adj.) 濕黏的
soggy (adj.) 稠的、浸水的
slimy (adj.) 黏滑的
I had to give up baking crunchy cookies because they always came out of the oven soggy.
我決定放棄考酥脆的餅乾了,因為每次出爐時它們都濕軟不已。


看完了眾人的反應,還真是哭笑不得啊!看來很多人都對珍珠本身和嚼食珍珠的動作感到奇異或困惑。這裡有誰知道珍珠奶茶的歷史呢?下一次請外國人喝珍奶時,或許就能讓他們更加理解這個長得像「蝌蚪」的食物由來呢!
