Here’s how to make your own bubble tea at home. There’s a basic recipe at the bottom of this post which you can endlessly customize. As for me, I like a lot of chewy boba and creamy milk tea. This is the boba I use, which you can also find in an Asian grocery store. At home, I like making bubble tea in a mason jar because you can cap it and give it a good shake, as bubble tea baristas do in Asia. You’ll also need wide bubble tea straws to suck up the boba. Ingredients Directions
First you boil black tapioca pearls in water and brew your favorite tea. Once the pearls are done, soak them in a little tea and some sugar. You can make your bubble tea warm or chilled. In China, hot bubble tea is popular in the winter and ice cold ones are popular in the summer. Just scoop some boba into a jar and add tea, milk, sugar, and ice to taste.
