    Hi Maangchi,

    Do you know how to make Bubble Tea? I’d love to learn how to make it if you could show us all how!






    I am from Taiwan where bubble tea is popular, I think must shake it alot. You can use Ice green tea(or whatever tea you like) with ice cubes. And put inside the shaker(I think thats what we called) and shake it. It is tiring by using hands. The stores in taiwan they have a machine to shake it for you. Anways. I’ve never made it myself and seen them making it :=) hope this helps.



    Bubble tea is a LOT of fun to make. I fell in love with Bubble tea many years ago and have no place that sells it locally so I have started making it at home.

    The ratio is at least 7:1 water to bubbles. You boil them for 20 minutes turn the heat off and let them sit in the water for another 20 minutes. Then rinse them in cold water and serve.

    Just a note, they dont keep very well at all so only make what you are going to serve. You can keep them in the fridge for a little while (a day or two) but they get mushy really fast and aren’t as tasty as fresh.

    You also need to make sugar syrup to make the teas with and that is 2 cups water, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup white sugar. Combine in a large pot and stir over medium heat until it starts to boil. Remove from heat and let cool. You can store this for a long time in the fridge if you make extra.

    To make the flavored tea there are a few ways to do it. With dried powders and syrups. I tried both and like the syrups the best.

    With the powder add 1 scoop flavored powder (scoop comes with the powder ^_^) 1 scoop non-dairy creamer (ONLY IF YOU WANT MILKY TEA) and 1 scoop of your sugar syrup. Add this into a shaker with some ice and 3/4 cup of tea (I prefer thai tea for my bubble tea but any tea will work) Shake well!

    Fill bottom of a glass with bubbles, cover the bubbles with sugar syrup, and pour your yummy tea mixture over.

    Syrup flavored tea is the same recipe but substitute the syrup for the powder.

    You can also put it all in a blender and make a frozen smoothie bubble tea drink. Or my personal favorite:

    Fill shaker with Thai tea

    1 scoop sugar syrup

    2 Tablespoons condensed milk

    mix in shaker with ice.


    Another great idea that is yummy is to add fresh fruit to your drink and put in a blender!!

    Experiment and try things you love. You wont be sorry! ^_^

    What is everyone’s favorite Bubble tea flavor?




    Thank you for leaving your bubble tea recipe. It will be a big help for those who want to make it.



    I just made some the other day it came out okay but not as sweet as the tea shops. I found some instant tapioca pearls that cook in 5 minutes (WuFuYuan) I love the texture.

    Do you know what section of the Asian market I would find the fruit syrup or powder? I think it would taste better with the added flavor.

    Thanks for you recipe I’m going to try this next!



    I do not know of any asian markets that carry the bubble tea syrup or powder.

    Your best bet is shopping online.

    My favorite place to get supplies is:


    They have everything you need to make almost any flavor of bubble tea.



    @sophiok: on top of the all that you might have to add extra sugar to make it sweet. I only know this cos the bubble tea place near my school used to add SOOO much sugar!! in addition to all the sweetening the drink itself received.

    The place also used to mention that they used to dunk their bubbles in honey at their store, I don’t know if that helps.

    I wasn’t able to fully read michael’s post so I don’t know if i repeated some of the stuff he said, sorry if i did lol



    A note to Canadian readers!

    http://www.bubbletea.ca/ offers the same powders as bubble tea supply but at a fraction of the cost-for the same amount (2.2 lbs) (:
