Bubble Tea Recipe

Bubble Tea Recipe by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

I first discovered Bubble Tea from a  coworker. She would bring those pre-made bubble teas in the office for us as an afternoon treat in the summer. It’s such a nice cool treat for a hot day.  I loved them. I adored all the fruity flavors they came in, but I loved the simple plain bubble tea the best.

So a few weeks ago I decided to try and make my own bubble tea, so I didn’t have to go out of my way to buy one when I got a craving, which is pretty often. The only problem was getting the ingredients, so I do what I always do, and headed straight to my favorite search engine to figure it out – Bing.

The first and most important ingredients are the bubbles, or boba, which is tapioca pearls. I quickly learned from my search that tapioca pearls come in all different types of colors, but I needed the black ones for my tea.

My search led my right to amazon, where I was able to buy not only my tapioca pearls, but also the black tea leaves to make the tea.

I love using Bing as my search engine. As you can imagine, I’m on the web pretty often during the day, researching recipes, ingredients and finding out where to buy the ingredients I need. With Bing, I not only get to just where I need to go on the web, but I also earn rewards for buying those ingredients that I need!

With the new Bing Rewards program, you earn points for every search you do during the day. Whether it’s searching for recipes, making travel plans for your summer vacation, or searching for the weekly forecast to plan out your weekend, you’ll be earning points! You can use those points to redeem gift cards to the stores you love or donate them to your favorite charity. Within just one day, I already earned 43 points! It’s so easy!

After you’ve earned enough points, just click over to the rewards tab and browse through all the options available. I think my favorite reward will be the Amazon cards. There’s so many hard to find food ingredients that I can simply order from there instead of traveling all around town going into different markets.

Anyway, let’s get back to that tea. To make this bubble tea, I just followed the directions on the back of the package of the tapico pearls to cook them. Then I brewed some strong Chinese black tea, added some milk, and let it chill.

When you’re getting the ingredients for this tea, don’t forget the boba tea straws. They’re just the right size for the boba.

To serve just chill in the fridge until cold, or add some ice and stir.

    I do like me some bubble tea but never have made it home – and now I wonder why because once you get the tapioca, it sure seems super easy!

    That’s so cool that you’ve made your own. The 1st time I had it was about 6 years ago. Loved it!! I always thought I would have to go back into Chinatown to get it so this is definitely useful information to make my own. Thanks!
