How To Make Bubble Tea

Invented in Taichung, Taiwan in the 1980’s, bubble tea is a tea-based beverage that is shaken or mixed with fruit or milk. 

It is combined with tapioca balls, also known as bubbles, pearls, or boba, so the drink is also often referred to as boba milk tea, boba tea, tapioca tea, pearl tea or bubble drink.

Others use black tea or green jasmine tea mixed with fresh fruits such as strawberries, apples, mangos, avocados, bananas, coconut, pineapple, kiwi, or peaches. However, the most popular varieties are bubble milk tea with tapioca and bubble green milk tea with tapioca.

 

 

WHAT KIND OF TEA DO YOU USE?

The best kinds of tea to use are those that have a robust flavor, such as black or jasmine tea.

Because you will water down the tea with milk and ice cubes, you want a strong tasting tea that will retain its flavor. I recommend is equal parts Assam and Ceylon tea leaves.

 

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

For the boba pearls:

 8 cups water

 ½ cup tapioca pearls

 

For the tea :

2.5 tablespoon black tea

4 cups water

 

For the simple syrup:

½ cup white sugar

½ cup water

 

Final Drink:

1¾ cup brewed tea

 ¼ cup milk

 ¼ cup simple syrup

¼ cup ice

 ½ cup tapioca pearls

 

 

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE BUBBLE TEA

Over medium heat, add water and sugar to a saucepan. Once the sugar completely dissolves, your simple syrup is ready to use or store in a clean jar.

In a separate saucepan, cook the tapioca pearls in boiling water for 5 to 8 minutes. Once cooked, remove the pearls from the hot water. Transfer them into a bowl of iced cold water for 2 minutes. Remove your boba from the water and mix in half of the simple syrup.

Steep the tea leaves in boiled water for about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the tea leaves according to your desired consistency.Pour in the ice, simple syrup, tea, and milk into a glass.

Finally, add your tapioca pearls on top of the drink. Serve your bubble tea with a thick straw and enjoy!
