This is how you make Bubble Tea – the easy way!
Bubble tea is also known by a lot of other names: boba tea, pearl tea, boba nai cha, pearl shake and tapioca ball tea. But no matter what you call it, it’s the same delicious, addicting drink.
Bubble tea can be enjoyed hot or cold, but always contains three main ingredients:
The tea (sometimes referred to as the base) which is usually black or green tea.
The milk or a milk flavored powder.
And finally, you have the tapioca pearls.
The tapioca or pearls are made from tapioca starch and have a sweet taste. They are soft and chewy and are the main reason why you need an fat straw to drink your milk tea.
Bubble tea comes in a variety of flavors like Taro, Mango, Banana Honeydew, Matcha Green Tea, Milk Tea, Mocha Frappuccino, Chai Tea, and a lot of other flavors, which can be made with real milk or a milk creamer.
Bubble Tea the easy way
Ingredients: (1 serving)
4 tablespoons of Tea Flavor
1.5 cup of hot tea (any tea can be used! – but you can also just use hot water if you are in a hurry!)
1/4 cup of Tapioca Pearls, cooked
Mix Milk Tea Powder in your favorite flavor and hot tea/water in a glass and add the cooked tapioca pearls.
Serve immediately with a big fat straw and enjoy :o)
(if you serve it cold you can add ice cubes)
Preparing the tapioca pearls:
1 cup of Tapioca Pearls
10 cups of water
(1 pinch of sugar/honey)
Boil 10 cups of water for every 1 cup of tapioca pearls in a large pot.
Add tapioca slowly into boiling pot and stir lightly until tapioca floats to water surface.
Cook in medium heat for 5-8 minutes and stir occasionally to make sure the pearls are not sticking to each other or to the pot.
Turn off heat and simmer another 5-8 minutes (adjust time to soften tapioca to personal taste).
Scoop out tapioca and let it rest in cold water for about 20 seconds.
Remove to a dry bowl and you may mix with a pinch of sugar or honey.
Eat within 4 hours after cooking.
I also LOVE to add those Tapioca pearls when I enjoy my Matcha Infused Juice! It oh, so yummy too! Have you ever tried that??
Enjoy – and be amazed!
