This is a drink I fell in love with early on in life. It's sweetened milk tea with boba which are tapioca balls. Found this one online, I don't remember where but it is very good. Very similar to how you would buy it in a tea shop. This can be made with or without boba and is very good both ways.

Ingredients Nutrition


  • 177.44 ml brewed tea (I use black but you can use chai or green tea too)
  • 236.59 ml ice cube
  • 29.58 ml sugar syrup
  • 118.29 ml milk
  • 59.14 ml tapioca (optional)

  • 118.29 ml granulated sugar
  • 118.29 ml brown sugar
  • 236.59 ml water


  1. Make the sugar syrup by combining granulated sugar, brown sugar, and water into a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Stirring often.
  2. Once mixture begins to simmer remove from heat. Cool and refrigerate until ready to use. Will keep for up to a month in a tightly sealed container.
  3. Once syrup is chilled, combined tea, syrup, milk, and ice in a shaker or blender. I prefer a shaker but if you like blended drinks use a blender.
  4. Shake until completely mixed.
  5. Add tapioca pearls to a tall glass and pour in milk tea.
  6. Use a large straw and enjoy!
