food love: bubble tea at home.


hi dears!

some days ago my beloved and me made our own bubble tea at home with tapioca pearls and taro tea powder.
i got a starter kit from the 'onlineshop of modern tea culture'.

well, it's quite an act of work to make those tapioka pearls and it isn't that cheap - the starter kit costs nearly 30€. but it's such fun when doing it together and the bubble tea tasted really good.






mmmmmmh - looks delicous, huh? ;)

the tapioca pearls actually taste of quite nothing with a small hint of coffee flavour. but i might also surmise that.
the taro tea powder was quite delicious. very aquatic, just a little sweetened, with a hint of milk flavour. to no extend as sweet as the first bubble tea i had in the 'star freshery' in mannheim.
and the former tasted quite better!

i think it's quite an act to make it, but it's okay.
and you can also buy popping bobas with mango or passion fruit flavour if you don't like the tapioka ones.
the latter are the more original bobas used in the first bubble teas ever.
by the way: bubble tea was invented in taiwan, in the 1980s!

have you ever tried bubble tea? 
have you even tried to do it at home?

xoxo, dahi.

  1. Ich bin auch ein kleiner Bubbletea-Fan, versuche aber, meinen Konsum einzuschränken :D
    Ich liebe diese Perlen, die im Mund zerplatzen. Leider kann man die ja nirgends bestellen :(

    An den Tapioka-Perlen habe ich mich noch nicht versucht- aber es sieht echt gut aus! :)
