Matcha Bubble Tea
Get my secrets to making the best matcha bubble tea at home.
MAKE BROWN SUGAR SIMPLE SYRUP
Boil 1/4 cup water and stir dark brown sugar until it dissolves. Set aside.
MAKE TAPIOCA BALLS
Boil water and add tapioca balls. Cook for 15 minutes.In a pot, (I use a 2-quart cast iron pot), bring 4 cups of water to a boil then add the tapioca balls. They’ll start to float to the surface in a couple of minutes and at that point, cover and cook on medium heat for 15 minutes. Stir every once in a while.(Follow directions on your tapioca ball packaging if you're using a different brand than the one I'm using.)
Strain tapioca balls.
Pour brown sugar simple syrup into pot with tapioca balls.Set aside to cool slightly. The tapioca balls are ready when they're nice and warm but not hot.
Combine cold water and matcha. Shake for 15 seconds.In an airtight container, combine cold water and matcha powder and shake vigorously for 15 seconds.
Divide each component into two cups. Spoon tapioca balls in brown sugar simple syrup, add ice, then milk, and matcha.Stir together before drinking.
