Bubble tea has a formal name which is called "Boba tea". Kuomintang has an English translation of "Nationalist Party"

I usually hear it referred to as boba tea, although I did get the answer eventually. I definitely think that boba should be an accepted answer.

Spend a lot of time thinking of the English translation of "Kuomintang" since I speak Chinese ...

Writing something down doesn't make it true. According to the constitution of Venezuela, citizens have a right to employment, health care and freedom of expression. In reality, they don't. The United Nations can say whatever they want. They could say that the moon is made of cheese. It doesn't change the reality that Taiwan is an independent country.
