How To Make Bubble Tea

1. What is Bubble Tea?

Bubble tea, also known as boba tea or pearl milk tea, is a popular Taiwanese drink that has gained international popularity. It typically consists of a tea base, milk (or non-dairy alternatives), sweetener, and tapioca pearls (also called boba) as the signature addition. The drink is often served cold and is consumed with a wide straw to allow the tapioca pearls to be sucked up along with the tea.

2. What Type of Ingredients You Need Use To Make Bubble Tea?

  • Type of tea

You can use any type of tea to make bubble tea as black tea, green tea, and white tea. However, black tea is the type of tea that gives the best flavor that you should use

If you are using black tea, it’s best to use loose-leaf tea so that you can control the amount of caffeine in your drink.

  • Tapioca Pearls

Tapioca pearls are the “bubbles” in bubble tea. They’re small, round balls made from tapioca starch. You can find them in most Asian markets or online stores. Black and white tapioca pearls are two types of tapioca pearls commonly used to make bubble tea.

Which type of tapioca pearl to use will depend on your preference. However, black tapioca pearls will be tougher and sweeter than white tapioca pearls

  • Milk & Sweetener

Bubble tea is traditionally made with whole milk powder and white sugar. However, you can use any type of milk and sweetener.

  • 60g black tea
  • 1 liter of hot water
  • 200g milk powder
  • 200g sugar


Step 1: Prepare The Tea

To break the tea, put the tea into a glass jar, add 1 liter of hot water from 80 – 90 degrees C, cover the bottle, and incubate for 20 – 30 minutes to extract tea juice. Then, strain the tea residue with a strainer.

You add sugar to the tea juice, stir until the sugar dissolves, and continue to add the milk powder. Use ratio: 150ml of black tea juice + 20g milk powder + 20 sugar sand. Milk powders are hard to dissolve and clump easily, so be careful to stir until the milk powder is completely dissolved. Then store it in the refrigerator.
