We’re celebrating summer by sharing our favorite iced coffee recipes & tips.
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:
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
Add ice cubes
Pour ice tea, leaving room on top for milk
Stir and enjoy!

*For best results, use a barista and/or refrigerated oat milk.
Pour 1 ounce of oat milk onto a small rimmed plate. Dip a martini glass into milk, rotating it through the liquid so about a quarter inch of the rim is moistened. Place crushed Butterfinger on a separate small rimmed plate; coat the outer lip of the martini glass with the crushed candy. Repeat this process with a second martini glass; discard any flakes of candy that have fallen into the glasses. Place butterscotch and chocolate chips in a small bowl; set aside. Using the heating disk of the Capresso froth Select Automatic Milk Frother, pour remaining oat milk, including remainder of milk on the plate, into the frothing pitcher; secure frother lid on top of pitcher. Turn the selector dial to the “CHOC” function; press the dial. Once the dial light begins to blink, remove frother lid and slowly add in butterscotch and chocolate chips. Replace lid; wait for the frother to automatically shut off. Pour alcohol directly into the frothing pitcher. Then pour mixture into martini glasses, and enjoy!
