Bobba Tea(Bubble Tea)

Hai friends today i am coming with Bobba Tea.I have tasted this recipe in the mall and i love it.Last year i tried and tasted this recipe today i want to share this recipe with u.

 Bubble Tea is a colorful blend of sweetened tea or juice with sweetened cooked tapioca pearls and often a creamy addition or flavoring syrup or powder, shaken until well mixed. Bubble tea was originally named for the frothy bubbles that form when it is correctly mixed. Another, older name for this drink, which first became popular in Taiwan, is "Pearl Tea". Nowadays, people often refer to the tapioca pearls as the bubbles, but authentic bubble tea in also made with coconut jelly.

Usually served with a huge straw big enough to suck up the tapioca pearls, this refreshing drink can be offered hot or cold. Substituting soy milk, milk, cream or half and half, or sweetened condensed milk instead of non dairy creamer varies the texture. You can use tea, juice or water for your base. Each cup of liquid usually has 2-3 tablespoons of tapioca added. Variations include blending your drink with ice or frozen fruit before adding the tapioca to make a bubble shake or smoothie. The sweetener may be a commercial syrup or powder or your homemade syrup made with white or brown sugar or fructose.


Topioca Pearls -1 cup
Water -8 cups
Crushed ice-1 cup
Milk-1 cup
Condences milk-1/2 cup

For Tea decartion

Tea-1  tsp
Water 1 cup

For Syrup:

 white sugar-1 cup
 brown sugar-1 cup
 water -2 cups


How to cook Bubble Tea Pearls:

Never use less than 6 cups of water for each one cup of dry tapioca pearls. 8 or 10 to one is better.

Most people like the pearls a little soft on the outside but a bit chewy. If you like your pearls tender all the way through, measure them, then cover with water and soak them for a few hours before draining and cooking.
Bring the cooking water to a vigorous boil in a large pot.
Stir in the tapioca pearls slowly, so they do not stick together or sink into a clump. The tapioca pearls will soon rise to float in the water.
As soon as they float, boil covered for about 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the tapioca pearls. Stir two or three times during cooking.
Turn the heat off and let the tapioca sit in the cooking water for another 25 minutes. Stir two or three times during soaking.
Rinse the cooked tapioca pearls in tap water until the water runs clear and drain.
Cover with bubble tea sugar syrup or brown sugar syrup, stir to coat. Refrigerate covered if not used right away; they will keep three or four days before they get too mushy.
When you want some bubble tea, boil a cup of water and warm some refrigerated tapioca pearls for about 3-5 minutes. Then stir into the drink. Enjoy!

How to make sugar syrup:

Mix both sugars and water in a large pot.

Cook at medium to high heat.
As soon as the sugar dissolves and the mixture boils remove from heat.
Let cool and refrigerate or serve.

How to prepare Tea Decartion:

Mix water and tea powder in a large pot.
Cover cook at medium heat.
As soon as it comes to a boil, time it, boil 8 minutes. Remove from stove immediately.
Strain at once, let cool and use as a base for pearl tea drinks.

Now all the prepared liquids and boba ready.

How to serve the Bobba Tea.

Take the serving glass or the shaker.

First add the 2 tsp of bobba in the glass.
To this add the 1 tsp of sugar syrup,1 tsp of tea concentrate,2 tsp of condenced milk cover it and shake it well or mix well with the spoon.
