Bubble Tea

Bubble Tea goes by many other names including pearl milk tea, or tapioca tea. This sweet tea-based beverage, featuring the distinctive tapioca balls and a foamy layer on top, became a worldwide sensation after emerging as a beverage in Taiwan in the ‘80s. Since then, it has inspired the creation of many different varieties of bubble tea, including those made with Matcha, fresh fruit or jelly, then served, chilled, frothed, blended into smoothies and even hot.

Here’s our version made in the Capresso Iced Tea Maker:

Ingredients

4 tbsp of loose tea leaves (or 8-10 tea bags)

¼ cup of boba tapioca pearls

Sweetener, to taste (honey, agave, etc.)

Milk, to taste (can use your choice of dairy or non-dairy milk)

Fill the water reservoir of the Ice Tea Maker.  Place tea in the filter basket.  Fill pitcher with ice and insert the pitcher to start brewing.

While the tea is brewing, bring a pot of water to a boil on the stovetop.  Once the water is at a rolling boil, pour in ¼ cup of boba tapioca pearls and cook for five minutes.  Then, drain and rinse the pearls.

 

Now, we’re ready to make the tea:

Place pearls in the bottom of a glass

Add sweetener of choice
