How to Make Bubble Tea - What Tea is Best?

Since the creation of bubble tea in Taiwan in the early 1980s, strong tea with a robust flavour was traditionally used in everyone’s favourite, chewy drink. Jasmine and oolong tea are common, but black tea is the most widely and popularly used. 

The kind of tea used in learning how to make bubble tea profoundly affects the drink’s flavour. Since most bubble teas will have either syrup, sweet pearls, milk, or a combination of all 3 added into the drink, a strong tasting tea that can retain its flavour is necessary. 

Our DIY Bubble Tea Kit includes 5 bags of premium black tea – the same kind we use in our store!

Brown sugar bubble tea, the drink that our DIY Bubble Tea Kit creates, features only a few key ingredients: milk, brown sugar syrup, tapioca pearls, and tea. 

With such few ingredients, each one must be of the utmost quality. Our premium black tea is specifically chosen for the full-bodied flavour our brown sugar syrup and tapioca pearls help bring out. 

What About the Tapioca Pearls?

You can’t have bubble tea without the bubbles, and even though you won’t be getting them fresh from our store, you can still make them at home!

Baroness Bubble Tea’s tapioca pearls and brown sugar syrup is a labour of love performed fresh every morning. They’re rolled, cooked, and braised before we open for business that day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t experience the same love we put into our toppings at home!

Our DIY Bubble Tea kit comes prepared with everything you need to prepare fresh brown sugar pearls in your kitchen.

Here’s how:

  1. Fill a medium/large stockpot with water until it is 70% full. The pot should be at least 4 litres in capacity to allow the room for the tapioca pearls to move around while they’re boiling.
  2. Place the pot on the stove and bring the water to a rolling boil on high heat.
  3. Once boiling, add 45 grams of pearls to the pot.
  4. Gently stir with a spoon to prevent the pearls from sticking to the bottom of the pot. 
  5. Bring the water and pearls back to a rolling boil.
  6. Keep the stove on high heat, and allow the pearls to continue cooking uncovered for 30 minutes. 
  7. After 30 minutes have passed, turn off the stove and remove the pot from the heat. 
  8. Cover the pot with a lid and allow the pearls to rest for another 25 minutes.
  9. After 25 minutes have passed, strain the cooked pearls through a sieve or strainer to remove the water.
  10. Place the strained pearls into a separate bowl and immediately pour in 80ml of the brown sugar syrup.
  11. Mix well until fully incorporated. Allow pearls to rest 15-20 minutes before serving.

With the pearls completed, the only thing left to do is assemble your brown sugar drink of choice!
