Tea has always been the beverage of choice for the Chinese people and green tea is particularly popular because of its many health and medical benefits. Every time I visit China I always bring back bottles of tea leaves with me. I prefer Chinese green tea leaves such as longjing, or Dragon Well, for this drink. The distinct fragrance and lingering aroma of the tea, combined with evaporated milk, honey, and chewy tapioca pearls is delightful and invigorating, especially after a heavy meal. You can substitute longjing with any Chinese green tea of your choice, but I would stay away from powdered green tea because it’s not the best choice for this soothing drink.
Makes 4 glasses
- 1/2 cup (75 g) tapioca pearls or boba
- 3 cups (750 ml) water
- 3 tablespoons green tea leaves
- 8 tablespoons evaporated milk
- 8 tablespoons honey
- Ice cubes or crushed ice
- Prepare the tapioca pearls according to the packaging instructions. Rinse and drain the boiled tapioca pearls in cold water. Set aside.
- Bring the water to a boil and remove from the heat, then add the green tea leaves. Set aside for 20– 30 minutes to allow the tea to release its fragrance and aroma into the water.
- Strain the tea into a pitcher and discard the tea leaves. It should yield about 2 cups (500 ml) of green tea.
- Add the evaporated milk, honey, and tapioca pearls and mix well with the tea. Pour the Sweet Boba Milk Tea into four glasses. Add some ice cubes and serve cold.
