4 Flavours Bubble Tea (Original, Matcha, Raspberry, Lychee)

JUMP TO THE RECIPE
If you haven't tried a boba tea, you've been missing out. This bubble tea is originally from Taiwan, but has seen success in the global market and is now popular in many countries, and the UK is no exception.

There are so many flavours to try, and whenever I go to Manchester city centre I never miss the chance to buy a refreshing bubble tea drink. To be honest I've been obsessed with these delicious milky, tea drinks which drove me to make one at home. I actually went a bit overboard and ended up making 4 different flavours (Original, Matcha, Raspberry, Lychee). Making these bubble drinks were so fun and I can't wait for my readers to try these out and enjoy them at home!

DIRECTIONS - STEP BY STEP:

- TAPIOCA PEARLS



In a pot add water and pour tapioca pearls. Boil for 5-6 minutes. Lower the heat half way though the cooking process. You'll know they're done when the pearls start floating and rise on the top of the water.

Check the tapioca, they should be chewy and gummy. If still hard in the middle cook for another 1 or 2 minutes.


Once done. Scoop the tapioca and transfer in a bowl.


Add brown sugar to give sweetness to the tapioca pearls. You can use any other sugar substitute of your liking such as honey, syrups etc. 


Mix well until sugar is melted, you should have a syrupy consistency. Set aside at room temperature.

TEA PREPARATION:

  1. Brew some traditional black tea 
  2. Brew a good quality green tea
  3. Brew a some raspberry tea
Let the tea rest in the hot water for at least 5-6 minutes to get a more concentrated tea as this will be diluted with milk afterwards. Let cool completely before using.
