How to Make your Own Easy Bubble Tea or Boba at Home

Posted 2018-02-17 by finyfollow

I have had bubble tea whilst out however I found it a bit too sweet, and from what I have read, commercial ones have a lot of sugar in them.

So I decided to set out to make my own and it was very simple - only thing different is that I did not have the wide straws to suck the pearls up with, and this is really part of the bubble tea experience!

Preparation Time: 10 minutes plus fridge time
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 3

Ingredients
About a third of a cup of black tapioca
A large pot of black tea, cooled
About 1 - 3 tblsp of sweetener - I used Agave
Milk to taste

Method
  • Boil some water and put in a pot and when it is back on the boil, slowly add your black tapioca.

  • Cook for about 5 minutes, put the lid on, and let sit for another 10 minutes or so.


  • Rinse them and drain.

  • Put some in each glass and while still warm, add the sweetener - I only added about a tsp in each glass though it possibly needs more!


  • Let sit while it cools.

  • Meanwhile, make your pot of tea, and allow this to cool, and then put in the fridge till needed.

  • Pour the tea over the tapioca in the glasses, leaving enough room to make it as milky as you want.

  • Add as much milk as you want.

  • You could add some coconut milk to give it a different flavour, and this is best if you just make enough to use at the moment.

  • I have read that you can make a sugar syrup by boiling a sweetener with water, and you could add this after the milk if you prefer, but the way I did it here seemed easier.
