Some Extra Tips For Bubble Tea:

If you’re making boba milk tea for the first time, here are some tips to help you succeed:

  1. Be careful when boiling the brown sugar. It can boil over quickly, so be prepared to take it off the heat if it starts to boil rapidly to avoid a mess.
  2. Don’t refrigerate the tapioca pearls. The tea can be chilled in the fridge, but the tapioca cannot, so make sure to leave it at room temperature until you’re ready to use it.
  3. Start with a strong tea. Choosing a strong tea is a good idea because the ice and milk will tone down the flavor. So, if you normally prefer weaker tea, try starting with something a bit stronger than what you usually drink.
