You might be asking yourself: “What the heck is bubble tea?”. First it’s a very fun drink and one of my favorite drinks.

Bubble tea is also known as boba tea or pearl milk tea. It’s mainly made up of tea, large pearls of tapioca, fruit flavoring, and milk. You use a large straw to drink it and suck up the chewy pearls as you’re drinking. You can use any sort of tea you can think of: green tea, black tea, jasmine tea and so on.

So how can you make some?

Here are the ingredients: Large tapioca pearls, tea bags, bubble tea powder mix, water, and (optional) sugar/syrup. All the ingredients can most likely be found at your local Asian grocery store.

Here are the steps for the bubble tea recipe.

Note: 1 serving consists of 1 tablespoon of large tapioca pearls, 3/4 cup of tea base, and 3/4 cup of the dissolved bubble tea powder.

1. Tapioca pearls: Bring water to a boil in a pot and add the tapioca pearls (8 cups of water per 1 cup of pearls). Boil for 5 minutes while stirring. Turn off the heat and let them simmer covered for 15 minutes. Drain the water after that.

2. Tea base: Bring water to a boil in a pot and add the teabags (3/4 cup of water per 1 teabag). Boil for about 5 minutes.

3. Bubble tea powders: Bring water to a boil in a pot and add the powder (which usually consists of a mix of milk powder and a flavoring powder) in a package. Proceed as instructed on the package but it’s usually about 3/4 cup of water and 1 or 2 scoops of powder.

4. To a glass, add 1 full tablespoon of the cooked tapioca pearls, 3/4 cup of tea base, and the dissolved bubble tea powder. You may want to add 1 tablespoon of sugar or syrup if you like it sweet.

5. Mix everything together and refrigerate for about 1 hour.

Enjoy! So that’s the bubble tea recipe in 5 easy steps. Try it!
