Milk Tea typically consists of 4 main ingredients- tea, milk, sugar, and tapioca pearls but can be customized in many many ways including some with or without ice, or even blended into a smoothie consistency. The possibilities are endless!

Where Can I Find Boba?

It is best to follow the instructions on the tapioca pearls that you purchase because prep time and rest time can vary.

You can remove the pearls and chill them or keep them warm in the pan. It is personal preference.

If you leave the pearls to cool longer than an hour or more they will begin to harden and are unpleasant to chew.
