Calories: 260 kcal
boba tapioca peals
water as needed
,divided, 2 tablespoons for soaking the peals and 2 tablespoons for milk tea
red tea bags
,one for each serving
Cook the pearls
Read the instructions on the pearls package at first.Do not mix your pearls with cold water, otherwise they will be destroyed. Bring enough water to a boiling and then cook the pears for 2o to 30 minutes (time on your package). Then transfer out and wash with cold water.
Before assembling with milk tea, they are mixed with sugar syrup or honey so they will not be tasteless in the sweet milk tea. Add around 1/4 cup of cold water with 2 tablespoons of sugar to the bubble pearls. Set aside.
Prepare the milk tea | After making my own bubble milk tea at home, I prefer the caramelized version. Caramelized sugar generates hundreds of new and different compounds, with richer flavor and dark color. We call this type caramelized milk tea.
Caramelize the sugar first
First, choose a claypot or cast iron pot and heat the pot until really hot. Add around 2 tablespoons of sugar in and stir continually with a scoop. Heat over slowest fire until the color turns brownly red.
Make the milk tea
Add milk in and then place tea leaves or tea bags in. Simmer until almost boiling.
Add the pearls in two cups and pour the milk in. Enjoy.
