Reporter Elizabeth Lee joins On Assignment's Philip Alexiou to talk about the rise of the so-called "Boba generation" of young Asian-Americans. The name is linked to Boba tea (also known as bubble tea) -- a popular non-alcoholic drink, filled with large, chewy tapioca pearls. The sweetened tea is connecting Asians across Southern California and helping drive a shift in what it means to be Asian in the U.S.
