Jasmine Green Milk Tea

Tapioca Balls



  • Boil 1 cup of water.
    If using an electric kettle with a temperature setting, set the water to 175°F. Use filtered water if possible.
  • Steep tea sachets in hot water for 4 minutes.
  • Discard tea sachets and stir in sugar. Let tea cool.


  • Boil water and add tapioca balls.
    Boil water in a saucepan on the stovetop then add tapioca balls. Cook on medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Tapioca balls should be soft all the way through.
    (Follow directions on your tapioca ball packaging if you're using a different brand than the one I’m using.)
  • Strain tapioca balls.


  • Put tapioca balls into a cup. Add ice, tea, and milk.
    Use an extra wide straw to drink.


  • The jasmine green tea can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • Bubble tea is best when it's made and served immediately when the tapioca balls are still quite warm. Once the tapioca balls start to cool down, they'll harden.
  • Assemble the drink in the cup while the tapioca balls are still warm but not too hot that you'll burn your mouth.
  • If you prefer weaker tea, use 1 tea sachet instead of two.
  • Bubble tea is served with a big straw so that each sip you'll get tapioca balls and the tea.
