What Is A Bubble Tea?

Boba tea, also called bubble tea, originates from Taiwan and became famous worldwide in the 1980s. Though there is some debate over the drink’s origin, most people believe it was invented by Ms Liu Han-Chieh of the Chun Shui Tang tea shop in Taichung, Taiwan.

In the past, boba milk tea was usually a tea-based beverage, usually blended with milk and/or fruit to enhance the flavour. Nowadays, tapioca pearls are served on the bottom in a cup with a thick straw for drinking them up.

The most common ingredients in bubble tea include black or oolong tea, milk, fruit flavours, sweetener, and a chewy ingredient, called tapioca pearls. It was initially called bubble tea because of the bubbles formed when shaking milk tea, not the pearls within.

In general, the milk tea base and the pearls within make up most of the sugar. Several boba drinks have upwards of 500 calories and 30-60 grams of sugar.

What is the best way to make healthy bubble tea?

It is common for people to eliminate boba pearls entirely due to their carb content. In reality, boba tea is just milk tea without the chewy boba! In the end, you are better off making bubble tea at home since it is healthier.

Even though tapioca pearls are not so nutrient-rich (despite being delicious), you can still enjoy them without excessive sugar. There are zero-calorie bubble teas, but matcha bubble tea is the healthiest.

A chia seed-infused pure ice tea is a near-zero-calorie drink that is also sugar-free. Matcha bubble tea is an excellent choice if you prefer a nutritious drink rather than one that is zero-calorie.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp honey (optional)
  • ice cubes
  • Prepared Boba (Black tapioca Pearls)
  • Black tea or green tea or green matcha tea

Once the Boba has been made, place it on the bottom of the glass you want to drink it out of. Place the fruit and milk mixture on top of the Boba. You can enjoy your boba by sipping it from the wide straw that comes with it.

Sweeteners to Use in Bubble Tea

Simple syrup, used in cocktails, is the best sweetener in bubble tea. Adding rich simple syrup to a beverage gives it a nice mouthfeel, and it takes less time to sweeten. Having rich simple syrup handy is simple and economical, so you can make it at any time. This syrup can be kept in the refrigerator for about 2-3 weeks.

You only need sugar and water to make rich simple syrup. A 2:1 ratio means that two parts of sugar are added to one part of water. It can be made by heating 1 cup of water (not boiling), then add 2 cups of white sugar once removed from the heat. Stir occasionally to dissolve the sugar as it cools for a few hours.

Once it has dissolved, you can use it. Sugar differs from person to person, so the appearance of syrup may vary. The syrup will be clear if you use white sugar. If brown sugar is your favourite flavour, you can use that instead.

You can also add simple fruit syrups to your bubble tea to sweeten it. Simple fruit syrups are some of the best flavours to add to bubble tea. The options are endless!

FAQs

Do grass jelly and boba have the same health benefits?

A grass jelly drink is usually filled with cubes or slivers of grass jelly, contrasting sharply with light milk teas. Grass jelly is easy to prepare and lower in calories than boba tea, making them a healthier substitute.

What is white pearl boba?

Cassava roots make Tapioca Pearl, also known as Boba, Tapioca Balls, or Bubble Balls. It is easier to add colour to these white boba balls after being prepared because they are colourless after preparation. Sugar syrup is usually soaked into them to give the bubble balls their sweetness.

Conclusion

Having fruit bubble tea is very healthy and nutritious. To add more health benefits to it, try green matcha bubble tea. The caffeine content will boost your work focus and your immune systems.

On top of that, having added fruits, the health benefits of your refreshing drink will be increased. Please do let us know about your blend bubble tea experience.
