“Bubble Tea became an Instant Sensation"
If you’re a fan of sweets, you’ve likely heard of bubble tea. This Taiwanese tea-based drink has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its unique flavor combinations and delightful presentation. But what exactly is bubble tea? How do you make it? What are its benefits? Let’s find out!
Bubble tea is a cold beverage made from sweetened tea, milk (or non-dairy alternatives), and tapioca pearls. The tapioca pearls give the drink its iconic name—the “bubbles” refer to the chewy texture of the pearls when you sip through an extra-wide straw. Bubble teas can be served hot or cold, but for best results stick to cold.
There are several types of bubble teas out there. Traditionally, bubble teas are either black or green teas mixed with milk and tapioca pearls. However, more modern variations have popped up over the years that use different flavors and ingredients such as matcha, taro root, chai, yogurt, fruit purees and much more!
Bubble tea is usually served cold but can be served hot during colder months. It starts with brewing either black or green tea leaves with boiling water before adding milk and sugar to create a sweeter taste. The tapioca pearls are boiled separately until they become soft and chewy before being added to the drink along with any other desired add-ins like jelly cubes or popping boba. Finally, the entire mixture is shaken up together to ensure even distribution of ingredients throughout the cup.
Besides its unique flavor profile, bubble tea comes with many health benefits due to its natural ingredients (no added sugar). Green or black teas contains antioxidants which help prevent cancer cells from forming while brown sugar tapioca pearls provide essential minerals like calcium, magnesium, iron, and phosphorus that can help boost your immune system.
