– Hi. I’m Alvin. Welcome back to Tasty’s “Making it Big,” where we make giant versions of some of America’s most beloved foods. Today, I’m gonna be making a giant boba milk tea drink, but the thing is I’ve never made boba from scratch. So I’m gonna call my friend Inga. She was my cohost on the giant ramen episode, and I think it’s gonna be a lot of fun. So enough talk, and let’s get started. (triumphant music) What’s up, Inga? – How’s it going, Alvin? – Good. We are using your bubble recipe today to make a giant boba. I’m gonna get started. So first thing is the sugar and the water, right? – [Inga] Mm-hmm. – [Alvin] Okay. Stir it until it gets dissolved, right? – [Inga] Yep. – [Alvin] Wait, what heat should I be cooking this on? – Basically just enough for the sugar to melt. – Oh (beep). – You don’t want it to be on high heat. Do you have it on high heat? – That was on high heat. – Yikes. Yeah, basically once it’s warm, you want to remove it from the heat, actually. – Oh, remove it? – And then add the starch. – Sorry, table. That one tablespoon-full. – That a lot. That’s a little too full. – So less. Okay, so like that? – Yeah, sure. – All right. She said it. So if the recipe goes wrong, it’s not my fault. – [Inga] You know, I can only see so much from the Zoom. – Oh, that’s true. It’s 100% my fault. – As you’re stirring it, it should form into almost like a paste. That’s great. Once it’s all dissolved, you want to return it to the heat, and now you just cook it down until it’s slightly thick. – Okay. Return to the heat. Wow, it’s like three ingredients, but the amount of like technique is quite a lot. I think it’s getting kind of thick now. The rest of this starch goes in and then stir fast? – [Inga] Mm-hmm. – [Alvin] Ooh. Oh, it’s getting sticky. Oh boy. – [Inga] What? Like, really lumpy? – It’s like really hard to scrape off the bottom of the pan, yo. How do I know when to get it out? – You’re supposed to get it out like ASAP. – Oh, okay. ASAP, all right. So far, things are going bad. (blows) – [Inga] Dude, that’s really liquidy. – [Alvin] It’s your recipe, yo! – But can you work with this? Do you think- – [Alvin] I think so. – I can’t feel it, so. – Yeah. I mean, it feels like, oh God. Okay, It looks really weird right now, so I’m not gonna… (Inga laughs) I don’t know how to describe this texture. It’s a little sticky, and it’s kinda warm. What the heck? It’s kind of like alive. The moment you set it down, it like does its own thing, but when you try to move it, it’s like a rock. – Wait, okay. Then I think there’s something wrong. – What’s wrong? – It’s not supposed to be like a rock. Yo. I don’t think that’s right. When you’re putting the starch in it, remember how for you, it was just like a liquid. It’s supposed to be like a dough at that point already. – Oh. – No, like it comes right off, right? That’s not right. When you pull it, it should be stretchy at this point. – Stretchy? – [Inga] I think we have to redo it, Alvin. – Oh no. It’s 100% my fault. – It’s okay. It’s only a few ingredients. It’ll be okay. – We’ll be right back. (upbeat music) Attempt number two. You were saying that I messed up in the sauce, like the thick sauce stage? – We think that’s what it is, that you need to get it to a consistency of a thick mochi sauce, and hopefully that’s the problem. – Thick mochi sauce, thick mochi sauce, thick mochi sauce. Can you see this? Is that almost there, right? – No, it’s not. – Oh, keep going. Ah. That’s where… that was the issue. I think the first time, I didn’t make the thick mochi sauce. It was just sauce. – Oh, yeah. I think it’s good. – Are you 100% sure? I’ll take the blame. You can- – I’m like 85%, 80%. – Oh, that’s a B… – 75. – 75? – Okay, let’s add the starch. – [Alvin] Okay, off heat, right? – [Inga] Yeah. – [Alvin] Okay. – Are you worried? – Oh, 100%. – Let’s go for it. – Okay. She said go for it. Hmm. Please work. – Does it feel different? – Oh, it feels so different. Oh my God. – Amazing! – [Alvin] Like nothing’s really getting stuck. – Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. – Yeah. Hoo! – So now what you have to do is roll it out a little bit into like an oval shape. Divide it into three sections. – [Alvin] Okay. – You need to wrap plastic around two of the doughs. This is just to help retain its moisture and heat. – Okay, what’s next? What’s next? – Roll this one out into a long snake shape until it’s roughly around- – 0.5. You have a ruler with you? – Yeah, I do. 0.5 is actually still too big. It should be a little smaller. – [Alvin] Like a finger? – [Inga] Like a finger! – Okay, yeah. Look at that, a little ball. – Oh, that looks so nice. Yes, it looks great. That’s beautiful. – Oh, let’s (beep)-ing go. Boba has a pretty unique texture when cooked. How do you describe what it tastes like or feels like? – Well, the taste is faintly sweet, but the texture is QQ. – QQ? – So QQ is the term that people in Taiwan use to describe the texture when it’s kind of chewy, it has a slight bounce to it, but it’s not rubbery. I feel like there’s a misconception there. Mochi is kind of QQ, you know, like it’s that kind of a situation, and QQ is my favorite word to describe everything. Noodles can also be QQ when they’re cooked right. – I have currently rolled only this much. – Yay! – Oh my God. Thanks Inga for helping me. – Good luck, Alvin. I’m sorry I can’t be there to help. – I have a lot of work to do. I’m gonna be here for like hours, dude. Jesus. (bouncy music) Okay, we’re back on the Tasty kitchen with a huge pot of boiling water for the tea. These are black tea bags. These are the ones that I used when I used to make and sell bubble milk tea. I’ll tell you there’s that story later, but essentially, you would just take these tea bags and drop it in. And we have 500 tea bags. It sounds like a lot. That’s because it is. I think this might have enough caffeine to keep an elephant going for a very, very long time. (elephant trumpets) All right. So this is all the tea it’s been chilled. It’s been brewed. As you can tell, the color is super intense. It’s like 22 liters or so. I don’t know how many cups of boba that’s gonna make, but I think the answer is a lot. (slurps) Ooh. Okay. After many years and some culinary assistance, we were able to make a lot of fresh boba. Four trays. Probably like 1,000 of these little ones. All right, in we go. Ooh, they’re like little, little bullets. Oh, wow. This is really hot. Ooh wee. All right. Let’s give these a stir. One more. Here we go. Oh, this is burning. Don’t kill yourself, Alvin. Come on. That was pretty intense. I think his recipe, the goal is to cook these until the bobas rise to the surface. Goodbye, you little bobas balls. Ooh, whoa. All these little bobas, they’re nice and plump, so I’m going to take these guys directly into some ice water. Inga said this step is really important because it sort of shocks the outside of the boba and helps it give it that QQ texture that she was talking about. They look really good, and they can’t stay in the ice water for too long. Wow. Look at that. That’s awesome. Okay. I have a lot of little boba balls to cook. So, see you guys in a bit. (upbeat music) A pretty important part about boba, at least for me, is if it has a nice brown sugar syrup. To start, five cups of water into this giant pot. Oh! And seven and a half cups of dark brown sugar. Stir this until everything comes together. You sort of have this syrupy brown sugar that’s really nice, and it coats the outside of the cup and they kind of make this streaky pattern. Probably my favorite part is gonna be cooking the boba in it. So here we go. And stir until it gets nice and sticky and sugary and delicious. Oh my God. It smells… Oh, it smells amazing. I do want to taste one. Oh. Oh, that’s good. All right, I’m gonna let this cool down, and then we’re gonna go build the boba drink. Woo-hoo. Okay. So I found a vase that’s apparently supposed to be used in hotel lobbies around the world as my boba glass. It is 10 inches by 30 inches tall, which in a mathematical sense, means it’s very big. No, Alvin, there’s no pressure. You just can’t do it again if you mess it up. Let’s first get the Boba in. Oh my God, there is a… (pan gongs) Don’t break. There is a huge vertical distance that this is gonna have to travel. I’m probably gonna spill everywhere, but that’s okay. This is really hot. (boba clattering) Oh wow. It’s like steaming the glass up. (boba plopping) We don’t gotta use the sound for that, right? We could just tweak it. We could skip past that part. That’s fine. My dream was to have the whole thing 100% fresh boba, but I unfortunately don’t have the manpower and miscalculated a lot of this, so I asked our culinary team to get some of the fast, quick boba. I still wanted it to have the look of a real bubble milk tea. So in this boba, there is a mix. It’s not all fresh, but I still think it’s gonna taste great. So please don’t be too mean to me in the comments, but that’s what we ended up doing. At the shops, they kinda get the brown sugar drizzle going down the sides. I kinda want to emulate that. So we’re gonna… That’s a spill. We’re gonna do this. Whee. (boba plopping) Wow, this sound is really something else, huh? Okay. It looks kind of cool. I’m pretty into it. Oh, I was going to tell you guys a story about how I used to sell boba back in the day. I was a junior high school kid. After lunch, we’d always go get boba, so I thought I could make a lot of money by also doing it. So I dropped out of Chinese school, much to the dismay of my mother, figured out how to make boba at home, went to Costco, got the big cups. The recipe was exactly the same as this tea. I set up a little table outside the classroom, and when the bell rang and the kids came out, I sold it for $2.50 without boba, $3 with Boba, and the kids would buy it. I made a couple hundred dollars that summer. When I ran out of boba, my mom would actually stay at home to cook the boba and drive over a couple of batches whenever I ran out. But in return, she asked for 50% of all proceeds. I was like, “Mom, that’s a lot of money.” And she was like, “Alvin, I’m just trying to teach you. This is how life works.” She told me that she was actually gonna save the 50% and put it in my bank account later. I never saw that money ever in my life again. She denies all allegations and has no recollections of the final amount of money I had. If you’re watching, Mom, I want my money back, yo. You can’t make milk tea without milk. So thanks, cows. (cows mooing) (milk plopping) Ooh, look at that. Dang. That was pretty cool. This is bigger than my wildest dreams. Please hold. Don’t break. Mmm. So I couldn’t find a straw that was big enough on Amazon, so I ended up ordering a clear PVC pipe. I think this is the only thing that will be usable for this boba. I’ll be very careful with this, but here we go. Get in there. Oh, it went to the bottom. And now we are going to slowly stir. Is it moving? I can’t tell. Woo! This is actually really hard. Oh my God. This camera is pissing me off up here. Slow. This is wild. Hoo, now my shoulders are so tired. Eugh. (Alvin pants) (triumphant music) Okay, I think that’s all the stirring I can do. Wow. This is the complete finished thing. This is a lot of boba. I don’t even know how much this weighs. I’m gonna have to do some math later, but I do want my friend Inga to see the final results, so I’m gonna give her a call and just show her what we got. – What’s up? – How’s it going? You want to see the giant boba that we made? – Yes. Show me. – All right. One, two, three. – Oh my God. Wait, is that a straw? – It’s a PVC pipe. – Oh my God. This is insane. That’s so much tea and so much boba. – Yeah, it’s six gallons of milk, 22 liters of black tea. – This is crazy. I love it. Congratulations. You did it. You made it, a giant boba tea. – I mean, this is your recipe, just times 500, probably. – Enjoy. – All right. Bye, Inga. Mmm. Wow. This is really good. I think this is definitely something you could serve at a boba shop and people would buy it. So you guys are probably wondering what’s gonna happen with all that boba. I would have loved to share it with my friends, people that I like to feed, just because that’s something I like to do with the show. But unfortunately, that’s just not something I’m able to do right now. So if you’ll excuse me, I have a lot of things to drink. I had a lot of fun today, and hope you guys had fun watching. So I’ll see you guys next time. (upbeat music)

Brown Sugar Milk Tea Recipe (Make Your Own Boba Pearls)

Brown Sugar Milk Tea, also known as Bao Zhong, is a very popular Chinese drink that’s similar to bubble tea. It has a lot of variations in terms of tea flavour and the sweetener used but it’s most commonly made using brown sugar or maltose. Brown sugar milk tea is made using the same technique as Boba or pearl drinks. Here is how you can make your own!

Video Transcript

so we’re making this video today simply because I don’t really understand the whole craze behind milk tea or foam tea or whatever you want to call it [Music] seems to be a lot of them coming out in the market I personally haven’t really tried any which is probably more hi I don’t understand it much so we went ahead to try one of the most popular ones right now making rounds on social media with crazy lines so we’ll get people’s feedback see how they’re going over there [Music] [Music] three hours something like that like [Music] after a huge shift it’s like I did I get this a beauty piece like a note e a time where they can deal with a lot of brown sugar in it it’s like bernie bud I think that the Prince yeah definitely came here milk he’s played football time bomb then it’s creamier [Music] you know it’s not very good the illustrating hey dementia hye-won idk self-esteem it’s pretty intense just for milk tea this is it right here this is the original from Tiger sugar there’s some nice like caramel sweetness undertones to it the tapioca balls or translucent brown I’m not sure if that’s because they’re caramel caramelized sugar thing because they’re only slightly sweet not too sweet nice and chewy I only very very kind of like subtly taste tea but I mean I mean it’s a comforting drink right so it’s a tea milk you know kind of like brainless combination that a lot of people love already and you just make it cold and then obviously the the boba or the tapioca starch or the saga or whatever you want to call it just gives it texture you know it makes it kind of fun to drink so if you want to actually try and brave the lines you know this says great as a tiger go for it but I’m gonna try to hack it at home [Music] so they’re couple of intricate pieces and important pieces to this recipe if we’re gonna get it right one obviously is the tapioca balls themselves the boba balls if you want to call them that and also the syrup because one of the things that Tiger sugar has that a lot of people take pictures of is are those stripes of kind of like I guess you can call it caramel on the side so those are the things we kind of want to try and figure out so the recipe is actually quite simple it gave me a major PTSD from might the host handle I’m making the hope or basically a Filipino breakfast what you want to start off with is actually just dissolve some sugar with some boiling water you’re then gonna throw in your tapioca starch all that goes onto the stove very very very low simmer until it gets really really thick once it gets nice and thick and you want to make sure you’re continuously stirring that so that you’re not burning the bottom or or discoloring it in any way you then roll out everything to really combine that dough get that dough nice and acquainted but itself so it looks like one whole piece cut those into manageable pieces and then roll them out when you’re rolling them out it’s really important to try to get about one centimeter in diameter at the end of the day really it’s up to you how thick or how big you want those bubble balls to be once I completely rolled out you’ll see they’re gonna be kind of sticky you want to roll them into balls make sure that they’re nice and round and then throw them in sand some tapioca starch then comes the next part really simple you want to boil and cook those bubble bubbles for about 20 minutes on a low simmer the way I decided to do it is boil it twice in some sugar water so I went ahead and created a very liquid brown Muscovado sugar syrup in which I cooked the tapioca balls i cooked those for about 15 minutes i didn’t strain them into some nice ice cold water so that they retained that bouncing chewiness once they were nice and cool I went ahead and made a thicker syrup this time same basic ingredients and Muscovado sugar of some water I added a little bit of salt because I think it’ll really just bring out all those caramel bits and flavors in there and then that you cook for about 20 minutes once that’s cooked you want to take everything including a syrup out you’ll see this it’s nice and thick and on the other side what I did to try to get those strings is I got a nice thick just Muscovado and water no tapioca whatever sugar syrup here and that’s what’s gonna line our glass all of this needs to cool down really really well and then obviously you’re gonna start steeping the tea so all you want to do I did two bags over steep a little bit so it has a little bit of that bitterness because it’s gonna be mixed in anyways with some milk later on it really comes down to how strong you want that tea flavor to be in the overall finished product time to make the tea you could actually combine it but I think a little bit of froth would be nice so we’re going to go ahead and grab our oversee bootie put that in a little shaker to that I’m gonna add some full cream whole milk in there the color is always kind of like a pale ish beige brown here you come check it out so this is just one ice cube in there quickly gonna shake that just aerate it a bit at this point it’s really just gonna taste like cold milk tea so that’s mixed you’ll see some bubbles and that’s kind of what I wanted to achieve just a little bitter aeration there now we’re actually gonna go ahead and make the bubble team so I’m gonna start with the pearls and then gonna line the glass with the thicker syrup we can go ahead and fill it in with the tea so you should have something nice and frothy nice and pretty strips on the side all we got to do now is actually tried that’s actually pretty good let me try those pearls look at them right here they’re well cooked through they’re nice and thick so there you have it next time if you don’t want to brave the lines you can make it at home it’s a really annoying recipe to make so I probably wouldn’t suggest it but it’s actually not that long it’s just a lot of in and outs in terms of process here are the total cost to make one portion of a homemade brown sugar milk tea so now it comes down to you how much you value your time and how much of a fan are you of milk tea at the end of the day if you value staying in line for a long time to try milk tea go for it if you want to make it at home go for it as well you keep doing you see ya [Music] you [Music]

I Made Homemade Brown Sugar Boba Milk From Scratch

Homemade boba has taken the bubble tea market by storm. Unfortunately, there are few resources on how to make homemade brown sugar boba milk. It took me about a year of testing and tweaking to come up with the recipe below. I will tell you upfront that this process is a little time consuming, but the result is very much worth it.

Video Transcript

(soft music) – Hey everyone, this is Inga. It is Sunday today. It’s a beautiful day outside. I’m at home, in my kitchen. A bunch of you have asked me how I make my own boba at home, so I figured today would be a great day to kind of show you guys how I do it. I’m thinking of making a brown sugar boba milk, because recently it’s just been blowing up in New York. I had the chance to go to OG location in Taiwan. Apparently, it’s shut down now, but basically, it’s (speaks foreign language). And brown sugar boba milk is pretty just brown sugar, boba, and milk. There’s no tea involved, so it’s really Just these really sweet, really indulgent drinks. It’s actually fairly simple to make it at home. Today, I am going to make my own version of it, so then I can just enjoy it in the comforts of my own home and hopefully you can too. Let’s get started on the boba first. There’s really only three ingredients. Tapioca starch, there’s water, and then there is brown sugar. And you just combine these together. Taking it off the heat to combine it with some tapioca starch. Put it back on and let it slowly cook to thicken. It’s almost like thick mochi sauce. We are now good to add the rest of the starch and combine. You don’t wanna over mix it, but then you also wanna make sure that it’s like combined. Pouring it out. And now we knead. You just wanna keep on kneading this while it still retains it’s heat. Combine it all, combine it all. (light music) There we go. This could be one giant boba ball. But we’re not going that today, so I’m gonna roll this out now and make this into little boba balls. I wanna make sure they retain their moisture while we work on this one. (light music) This feels really smooth right now. Now we can start chopping it up. Now roll it up like so. Our first three boba balls. Now we’re just gonna keep going. This is definitely the most time consuming process. There’s a hack that somebody did where they used a straw to kind of stamp the boba balls out. Here’s your first batch of boba balls. There are little uneven, but that’s okay. It’s just for me to eat anyways. They kind of look like soy beans right now. Throw them in here and toss them around just to coat it. I’ve got these two more mini doughs to go, so I’m gonna finish this off and hopefully we’ll have plenty of boba by the end of this. (soft jazz music) A little toss. All my boba is now done. It looks like this. So these are the ones that you can buy at the Asian markets. These are the ones I made. They look kind of similar. And I think even though I said some of them came out uneven, they actually look pretty similar shaped here. You could probably feed like two or three people with this, but I’ll probably eat it all by myself. Let’s get the water boiling and cook these. Now we can toss this in just like that. Give it a little stir. The ratio is important, you don’t want too little water. Since I’m not making that much, this is a pretty good amount. So I’m gonna let it boil for I think around 15 minutes, then I’m gonna cover it up, turn off the heat, and let it sit for another 10 minutes. I’m gonna go sit down and chill for a little bit. The boba’s almost done, so over here, I am gonna start working out our brown sugar syrup. This is the muscovado sugar I’ve been using. Then I’m gonna add enough sugar for it to dissolve. Now we just wait for this to melt. Okay, the boba is now done. I have a bowl of ice water here, which I’m gonna put the boba in. This step really just helps it become more QQ, which is to give it that bounce and chewiness. Look at them, wow. They feel like they’re gonna be super chewy right now. And then we’re gonna go back over to this side and add the boba into the brown sugar. My boba. So I’m just gonna cook these down now until it becomes that beautiful syrup. It’s super goopy now. I think it’s looking really good. There we go. I have all the components ready now, now it’s just to build the drink. This is the most exciting part. (light music) There we go. And here it is, our brown sugar boba milk. Ta da! Wow, I am so excited. I feel like I might have gone a little heavy on the brown sugar. It’s gonna be really sweet, but– Oh, okay. I know I’m just drinking milk right now, but I do wish I had a boba straw. Mix it up a little. Oh, this is so good. This is so satisfying. There’s also a lot of sugar in here. The boba is like perfectly chewy. It really just smells like caramel pudding. It smells so good. Right now it just looks like milk tea. I’m just adding in some tea that I made earlier. Oh my god, this is amazing. I hope this was helpful. I already finished most of my boba during the time I’ve been talking to you guys. I hope you guys enjoy this video. I had a lot of fun. Honestly, I just make a bunch of stuff at home all the time, the most randomest things. If you guys like seeing me do that, let me know in the comments. If you haven’t subscribed to already, subscribe, and let me know what else you wanna see. This was a great success, yay! (light jazz music)

Get started with eight free meals. That’s $80 off your first month by heading over to hellofresh.com and using the code Emmy80. Thanks to hello fresh for sponsoring this video. And today we’re going to be making HOMEMADE BOBA Boba! Now a few of you have requested this and I first thought this is insanity Why would anyone ever make a homemade boba? but then I began to do my research and I believe I see the light. So I did my first boba recipe how to make milk tea boba recipe years ago It’s probably about four years ago now I’ll put a link to the baby..i mean video above and down below But in that video I use pre-made boba. They come in a package. They’re vacuum sealed and you just boil your boba Very very simple. Today, I’m gonna show you how to actually make those tapioca balls If you’re not familiar with boba tea, boba tea is a type of tea That was I believe invented in Taiwan and it has big tapioca pearls usually they’re kind of darker in color and they’re very chewy and bouncy and they’re in the bottom of a glass and usually topped with a milk tea. A black tea that is Sweetened and enriched with milk and you drink the tea along with the boba pearls at the bottom. So you have this kind of simultaneous Eating and drinking experience. It’s actually much more delightful than I am describing and delicious So I thought the boba craze is over, but it is not it is not. I just read an article in eater I’ll put the link down the description about a branch of tiger sugar opening up in New York So I went down the rabbit hole That is the internet to learn more about Tiger sugar Which is a chain that originated in Taiwan that makes this particular type of boba drink So it has the boba pearls, nice big ones at the bottom which they make in-house fresh Which I’m going to be attempting today, and they’re cooked at the bottom in this beautiful dark sugary syrup That syrup is coated on the inside of the plastic cup and then milk is added and then it’s topped with a slightly thickened cream on top So basically you have a Brown sugary icy milk drink with boba chewy tapioca pearls at the bottom. Sounds fantastic and visually, it’s very very striking. It’s made for Instagram that’s the reason why they call it Tiger sugar is because the sugar that lines the inside of the cup as it dissolves into the milk creates this kind of stripy tiger pattern. So at this point, in East and Southeast Asia, there are many different brands of this type of brown sugar boba, including one called Xing Fu Tang. So I’m imagining there must be some reasoning to making boba fresh like they do at Xing Fu Tang. So I’m very curious to see how the homemade version compares to the store-bought. I’m also curious to see what the brown sugar milk tastes. Like I was about to say tea but it won’t contain tea. I’m also curious to see how the brown sugar milk compares to milk tea which I love — so to compare that in my mind will be interesting and I’m also just up for the challenge of doing this. So before we get started on the recipe, let me tell you a little bit more about hellofresh.

Big thanks to hellofresh for sponsoring this video, now let’s go make some boba! So boba consists of only three ingredients: tapioca starch, brown sugar, and water. We are going to combine 60g of water; now I’m adding 45g of Muscovado sugar — and this contains lots of molasses, that’s why it has this dark, brown color –and we’re just gonna heat this up until the sugar is dissolved. Now we’re turning off the heat and now we’re going to add just a spoonful of our tapioca starch. And then once it’s combined we’re gonna turn the heat back on we’re trying to avoid lumps here So we’re gonna heat this back up until it starts to thicken and then remove it from the heat Okay, okay. Okay, off the heat. Look how its thickened. Isn’t that amazing? The remaining tapioca starch Now it looks like a lot of starch but eventually this will all combine into the dough Now we’re ready to knead now. We’re gonna use a little extra tapioca flour sprinkle our counter. At Xing Fu Tang, they use a stand mixer to actually mix this together. But since this is such a small amount, I’m just gonna knead it. It’s also what cooking tree does in their videos. Now, we’re gonna need this until everything is nicely incorporated And a little bit more tapioca if we need it This is so great, it’s so supple. Listen to that sound, isn’t that great? Now we have this beautiful dough Look isn’t that gorgeous? Look at that beautiful color. I’m gonna work with about half of it at a time Yeah, but you want to keep the other half wrapped up while we’re working with this half So we’re just gonna make snakes here and then we’re gonna cut the snakes into little pieces Now the boba will expand a little bit while we’re boiling them, so make your snakes kind of skinny This is my first time making boba by the way, so I’m certainly no expert. This is just based on what I’ve witnessed in videos. So we’ve got our snakes and now we’re going to cut our pieces as so. See how those pieces are all out Cooking tree shows a technique where you take three of them and put them in your hand and then roll all at the same time And you get three? Bobba, so I’ll be back when I’ve rolled all my boba into balls Now that I’ve rolled out and shaped my boba, I’m going to add them to a pot of boiling water Gonna stir this around Because we don’t want them to stick to each other or to the bottom of the pot So now they’re floating on their surface now, we’re gonna start the timer for 20 minutes So after 20 minutes of cooking We’re gonna turn off the heat keep them covered and let them rest for additional 20 minutes, then we can assemble our drink Alright, see ya in a bit. Now, we’ve got our boba on the side here that we’ve strained Now we’re ready to make our little brown sugar syrup. So we’re gonna heat up a pan and we’re gonna add 35 grams of Muscovado sugar Now we don’t want the heat on too high, we’re not melting this we’re just warming it up So this is the method that I saw in the Xing Fu Tang video that I watched It just warm up the brown sugar and then they add the hot freshly cooked boba Smells incredible smells like molasses, brown sugar This is sugar and sugar burns really easily so we don’t want this to burn We just want everything to be nice and melty and glorious. Oh, that’s so good Okay, so we are finally now ready to assemble our drink. Got myself a glass I’m gonna get my hot boba into my glass And roll the boba around like this and that’s what’s gonna give us our Tiger Stripes. Next, we’re gonna add some ice. Next, our milk. Now I’m just gonna top it with a little bit of slightly whipped cream on top just a little, *purses lips* you know Ahhh, look at it! The tiger stripes disappear pretty quickly, but I did manage to get them. I’m so so pleased So stinking Beautiful. Yes. Okay. So now we mix this up and doesn’t that sound great? Alrighty, let’s give this a taste. Itadakimasu! Oh my good- *inaudible sounds* They’re so good! It’s so stinkin delicious, it’s basically like ice cream You’ve got the heavy cream on top that mixes with the cold whole milk, I use whole milk So it’s rich and creamy it tastes like melted ice cream That little bit of cream floating on top mixed with the whole milk mixed with that little bit of brown sugar that we use to cook the boba and Perfect balance of sweetness. It’s actually less Sugary sweet than ice cream about the richness and sweet in the combination reminds me of ice cream. It’s absolutely wonderful and the homemade boba Absolutely marvelous. So much better actually than the typical manufactured kind. They’re more supple and more tender but still really great and chewy, but they’re not hard in the middle So it’s fun! I love it. Mmm! Absolutely love it. Delicious. I don’t miss the tea at all. Although I might miss the caffeine later So scrumptious, I love this.

(upbeat music) – Hey guys, I’m Jasmine and I love Boba. You might’ve seen me over on Bring Me trying to finish a gallon of Boba milk tea, or trying unique Boba treats in Taiwan. Because for me, Boba is just one of those things that can turn a bad day into a better one. So I thought I would share five delicious and gorgeous Boba recipes with you all so we can enjoy them together. All right, guys, we’re gonna start by making the Boba first. We are making it from scratch. Of course, if you don’t want to make it from scratch, you can buy pre-made Boba from any local Asian grocery store. But actually making Boba from scratch is quite easy and there’s only three ingredients, three, not six, three. So let’s start by adding in our water and our Muscovado sugar. And we’re gonna turn that onto a medium high heat. We’re gonna stir this until it dissolves and comes to a boil. It’s starting to boil, so I am going to add in a little bit of tapioca flour. You wanna mix this in well, because we don’t want these clumps. If you find that you’re clumping too much, you can add a little bit of water to make that dissolve just a little bit easier. Once it looks something like this we’re going to add in half of our tapioca mixture, so we’re just gonna stir this really vigorously until it forms a super sticky dough. Now that you’ve got a super sticky dough like this, we’re gonna turn the heat off. We’re gonna add in the rest of our tapioca flour. And once that forms into a ball, we’re gonna move over to a new workstation and roll out the dough. I just let our Boba dough cool for a little bit and I am transferring it onto this clean counter. And I’m just gonna incorporate all the tapioca flour into the dough. If your dough feels a little dry you can add a little bit more water. If you feel like your dough is too wet, you can add a little bit more tapioca flour. I’m just gonna knead it until it’s all incorporated. Once your dough is formed, it should look something like this. Roll it into a thick little oval, like this, like a potato. I split it in half and then we can easily roll both out, if it gets too long, you can separate them. When you think it’s the right size make it just a little bit smaller because it does expand when you cook it. And the Boba dough does get harder to roll once it cools down. So if you want, you could put like a warm, wet towel over part of the dough while you’re rolling out the other part. Alrighty, so I have four thinly rolled Boba dough logs, and I am just going to put ’em together and I’m going to be cutting them into small little Boba pieces. I think a quarter inch. It’s also okay, that they’re not all uniform. So now that we’ve gotten them into our little baby pieces, we roll them up into little balls. Let me show you a couple hacks on how I make this a little quicker of a process. So of course you can do it one by one like this, and you have your little Boba. Or sometimes I’m able to put five on my palm, I’ll put my palm over the other and after some good old rolling, you’ll have your delicious Bobas. Ah, it didn’t work, today’s not a good day. All right, so after some time rolling, you’ll be able to see that they come out like this. Perfect. And then we throw them into a bowl with some tapioca flour and make sure they’re well coated, so they don’t stick to each other. The other hack is spreading them onto the cutting board or your counter, wherever workspace that you choose, and just go to town. If you occasionally feel lazy in the kitchen like me, then this hack is great, but make sure your dough isn’t too cold or this hack won’t work. Tadah, look at that, little Boba babies. I call it Boba, but you know, in different parts of the world they are called something different. Boba, Bubble Tea, Pearls, in Taiwan they say Zhenzhu, which is Pearl. (air whooshing) Now that the water has come to a rolling boil, we’re going to add in all of our Boba and we’re gonna stir it so it doesn’t stick together. It’s gonna turn a little cloudy just because of that excess tapioca flour that was coating it. You can mainly leave it unbothered for the next 20 minutes or so. While the Boba’s cooking, let’s make our brown sugar syrup. It’s very simple, we’re just gonna add in some Muscovado sugar and some water, gonna mix it and let it reduce just a little bit. So it’s nice and viscous. Now we are going to pour it into this heat resistant glass over here. Yes, gorgeous. So now that the Boba’s done we’re gonna drain it and rinse it with cold water to keep it from cooking even more. And then we’re gonna give our Boba a brown sugar bath. You hear that? So we’re gonna leave our Bobas in this brown sugar syrup bath for about 30 minutes to an hour, just so it can really soak up that delicious, deep flavor of the Muscovado sugar. Yum! (air whooshing) I put this on first because I think everyone trying Boba for the first time should definitely try the classic Boba milk tea experience. The first step for making a Boba milk tea is to make our tea. My favorite part is when the teabag hits the water and then that heat that is slowly bubbling up, it causes that Tea leaf to just release its gorgeous, dark brown hue, and you can see those swirls in the water. And then you take your spoon, this is my favorite part! You press on the teabag and it just like (explosion) explodes with color. So while the tea is cooling down, we’re gonna make our milk mixture. I personally love using condensed milk because I think it gives it a much richer flavor. It makes your Boba milk tea multi-dimensional and I want every experience with my Boba to be multi-dimensional. Once you have those two together you can whisk until it’s combined. So this condensed milk mixture does make your drink even sweeter, especially with the Muscovado sugar bath that the Boba is currently in. So if you prefer your drinks to be less sweet, you can just sub it with more black tea. On average when I go to Boba shops, I get a 25% or 50% sweet. Time to assemble our first drink. So we’re gonna start by adding in our Boba and then add in some ice, and then we’re gonna add in our black tea and top it with our sweetened milk. I like to add it slowly over a spoon to slow down that pour and really get those swirls. You can see that I’m actually failing here, but it’s okay because it’s still pretty and delicious. And voila! That’s our first drink, the classic black milk tea with Boba. Mm, wow that is so good! (air whooshing) all right guys, the next drink we’re making is a mango slush with Boba. It’s absolutely delicious. It was one of my childhood favorites because it’s just so sweet and summery and refreshing. It’s super easy. Take your blender, and we’re going to add in some frozen mango chunks, some water, and some condensed milk and just blend away. (blender whirring) Once we’ve blended everything together, we can grab a glass and I’m adding in some Boba that we made earlier. And of course topping it with our mango smoothie. Look at how beautiful it is! I love it! Time to drink the mango smoothie with Boba! Ah this’ll be a throwback. Mm, mango smoothie guys, I mean, come on. It’s so refreshing. The next drink we are going to make is a strawberry matcha latte. Let’s start by making our strawberry puree. We’re gonna add in half a cup of diced strawberries and two tablespoons of sugar. We’re gonna muddle it with a fork until it’s nice and juicy. You can muddle it to your liking, so if you like chunks in your drink, feel free to leave some chunks. Now that we have it muddled, we’re gonna let it sit for 10 minutes. So while that’s sitting, we’re gonna go and make our tea. We’re gonna add a teaspoon of matcha powder to a third cup of hot water and whisk it until bubbles form on the surface. If you don’t have a whisk or a matcha whisk, don’t worry, you could totally just use a fork. We’re going to add in our Boba, per the usual. And then we’re gonna top it with our muddled strawberries. Now put in the ice after the strawberries, this will help with the layering. We’re gonna slowly add in the half and half. The last step for this drink is to add our matcha, again, slowly pour it over this drink. This drink is like very anxiety heavy, huh? Slowly, go slowly, slowly. Look guys, it’s so pretty! Strawberry matcha latte. The colors are just absolutely gorgeous. If you’re trying to impress your friends, this is a dream to make. But I have to mix it, I’m sad I have to, but you know, it’s just the way things are. It actually is still very pretty. Those chunks of strawberry are giving it a nice hint of red. Cheers! Mm, It’s the perfect blend of matcha and strawberry. It’s light, creamy and fruity. I got a mouth full of strawberry puree and I’m in heaven. (air whooshing) This is the Taro milk tea with Boba. It has a nuttiness to it that the other drinks don’t have. So I’ve already steeped my green tea and let it come to room temperature. And now I’m gonna whisk my Taro powder into the green tea. If you haven’t had Taro before, Taro is a root, I would compare it to a sweet potato, but slightly more bland and slightly more sweet. It’s very delicious. You can also sub the green tea with water, if you’re not looking for a caffeine kick, but trust me, the taste with the green tea just elevates it to a whole other level. Let’s get to assembling! Add in our Boba, add some ice, and then pour the Taro tea into the glass, and then slowly add in our two tablespoons of half and half. Again, if you want that gorgeous swirl, you can pour it slowly over the back of a spoon. Mix it up and it’s time to drink. Cheers! When you are chewing it, and the flavor of the Taro milk tea is fusing with the Boba flavor, next level guys, next level. (air whooshing) This is like the big home run, because I think it’s the prettiest. This is the Pea tea latte with Boba. If you don’t know what Pea tea is, it’s a type of tea derived from the butterfly pea flower, and it has this beautiful blue color. And if you squeeze a lemon into it, it turns purple. Look at that a purple tea! We’re gonna steep a teaspoon of loose pea tea leaves in a cup of hot water for about five minutes. And then we’re gonna strain it and let it come to room temperature. That’s essentially it, it’s time to assemble and we’re gonna start by adding in our Boba, ice, and then pour in our Pea tea. Oh it’s so pretty! Look at that blue, I almost don’t wanna ruin it, it’s just so gorgeous, but we are. We’re gonna add in a couple of tablespoons of half and half and it will look like you’re drinking the ocean. And there you have it, the Pea tea latte with Boba. It’s so gorgeous, let’s give it a try. I would say it tastes like a very, very light version of Thai tea. So if you enjoy lighter teas, this may be for you. There you have it, five must try Boba recipes that are delicious, unique, and beautiful. If you end up making any of these Boba recipes or all of the Boba recipes, make sure to tag me on Instagram so I can see it. Bye. – [Narrator] Oh yes!

Video Transcript

hey guys today we are gonna make some boba drinks there’s something for everyone so be sure to watch to the end and let me know which one is your favorite but I’m gonna start with my favorite which is the Vietnamese coffee cuz I need that jolt cuz I’m always tired we’re gonna start by adding some condensed milk into a cup it’s just very sweet thick sweetened milk that’s essential to Vietnamese coffee I’m adding like maybe two tablespoons here and then here is my Vietnamese coffee filter this one is a traditional Vietnamese coffee filter it just percolates espresso beans with water down into the cup and you can find this on Amazon it’s really cheap it’s like eight dollars it’s great for camping or bringing along with you anytime you need coffee this isn’t Vietnamese coffee this is not like traditional Vietnamese coffee its coffee with chicory just it just tastes really really good and then I’m gonna fill the coffee filter up with two hefty scoops it’s already pre ground so I don’t need to do much there’s a tamp that you just put right on top drop it down and then we’re gonna fill the Finn that’s what it’s called the filter with some hot water and let her drip so it’ll start coming out fast because your coffee grounds need to balloon but once it does it’ll slow down a bit and I like to kind of press it down a little bit more so that’s around one of filling up the filter I’m gonna do it twice just because for a cup this size kind of lot a lot of coffee if you notice the second time around with the hot water the coffee grounds have bloomed so it’s going through a lot slower so it’s gonna be nice and concentrated I try to cut myself off from Vietnamese coffee by like 2 p.m. otherwise I’m probably not gonna sleep that night okay now I’m gonna add some boba which I’ve already cooked here I’ve cooked enough boba for the entire video so we have a lot of bubas I found a really good boba place online so if you guys want to buy dried tapioca balls that basically look like this and you just cook it up like pasta I’ll link it in the description box below it’s pretty cheap too I’m gonna add a nice spoonful of boba into our drink and then with my spoon I’ll just mix mix mix now we fill it with lots of ice all the way to the top I know this looks pretty thick but the ice I will dilute it and pull it down and this is our villainies iced coffee aka cafe soda with boba are strong and delicious and you guys know I love my coffee isn’t easy so of course I’ve dedicated a whole chapter to it where you can find more delicious Vietnamese drinks and other yummy coffee and tea drinks in my good book be sure to check out the link in the description box below and please please PLEASE pre-order it because that’ll help me get onto the best-selling list which is like a dream so help a girl out alright our next one is a matcha milk boba with cheese foam which is kind of like the matcha dalgona except reversed so first I’m gonna make my matcha I have 1 teaspoon of matcha powder here you can use any kind that you find at the store they’re all really good for drinks so just add it to my bowl and then I’ll pour in about 1/4 cup of hot water and we’ll whisk it up so here I have a traditional matcha whisk which you could just whisk it up in here but like I told you guys in my tiramisu video I actually really prefer using the Aero latte this one is supposed to foam your milk and make it nice and frothy but I found that whiskey or using it for my matcha really dissolves the granules and it just becomes like a lot smoother I think IKEA even carries one of these for like five dollars so pour matcha into a cup and then I usually like my matcha slightly sweetened so here I have some simple syrup I just cooked up some equal amounts of brown sugar light brown sugar with water so like half a cup of brown sugar and a half a cup of water for this I’m just gonna add maybe two teaspoons but you can add as much or as little as you’d like get some of our boba in there some milk ice we’ll set this aside just let it kind of cool do its thing and then I’ll show you guys how to make cheese foam for the cheese foam I’m gonna add two tablespoons of cream cheese and then about a quarter cup of whipped cream and tablespoon of sugar then we’re just gonna whip it up until it’s nice foamy and delicious this is kind of more like cheesecake when they say cheese foam it’s not like salty although they have those salted cheese and I’m not down for salted drinks our cheese foam looks so yummy it’s just probably a little thicker than I’ve wanted it I think that’s too thick like this just add more milk to thin it out because you want it to be kind of thin to mix in with the drink yeah that looks really good okay let’s top it off and then we’ll just give it a final dusting and watch a powder now we give it a try [Music] that is good for the matcha earlier if you don’t want a lot of milk in there you can totally leave it out and just add more water I like the milk combination and the cheese foam the cheese foam will make it kind of milky already so it’s really up to you but this is really good mmm it’s like a matcha cheesecake this next one we’re gonna do is a strawberry black tea milk tea which is so yummy I’m gonna have some fruit bits in there so we’re gonna start by processing our strawberries I have one cup here and I’m gonna add it to my food processor the reason why I’m using a food processor is because I think that it purees it better and then I can control the amount of chunks that I want but you guys will see what I mean this is just a regular mini food prep food processor just work up nothing fancy just give it a little okay so that’s the first round as you guys can see I have like large fruit bits and I love when my milk tea has or even my boba teas have those fruit bits because it just kind of adds to the texture so I’m gonna add some to my shaker you can add as much or as little as you’d like I like a lot and then now we’re gonna puree with us all right now we have a strawberry puree I’m just gonna add some yeah so this is gonna be a doubly strawberry drink then I’m gonna add a little bit of our simple syrup just to sweeten it up slightly some ice and then black tea that I have already brewed so I like making my black tea ahead of time or actually green tea as well you can do green or black I tend to like black um but I just steep it with a bunch of black tea bags with hot water and let it cool down into this jar you can keep it in the fridge so you have iced tea at all times or you can make boba drinks like this close our shaker and just give it a mix mix mix and because I know you guys are gonna ask I got this at Pottery Barn if I can find it I’ll link it in the description box below since this is a boba video some more boba then I’m just gonna open this up the foam on top is so pretty pour it right in tada we have a beautiful black strawberry tea I’m not gonna add milk in it since for fruited drinks like this I tend to like it just pure and it’s so refreshing but with the boba it’s just extra extra yummy might have had a little bit too much boba but that’s okay [Music] this is so yummy I get the strawberry bit and then the strawberry puree with the black tea is just it’s sweet it’s it tastes like summer with boba it’s nice and chewy this is like a strawberry gummy bear in a cup all right so this next one is a really interesting one that I actually craved while I was pregnant I found out about this drink last year from bopomofo which is Wong foo Phil’s boba restaurant um he’s like a YouTube veteran so if you guys want to check it out I have the information in the link description box below you just blend actually I don’t know how they do that this is just my interpretation of it but basically I just blend watermelon into like a watery consistency I have a whole bowl of watermelon it’s probably like 2 cups worth and if you guys want to see how to cut watermelon I have many videos on that at this point with either fun gadgets or by hand but now we’ll just blend this up I’m using my Vitamix here which does a really really great job of just like pulverizing and liquefying any type of fruit and that looks pretty perfect I love watermelon juice I’m gonna start by adding my boba into the cup and won’t add as much as I did last time just one scoop is probably good and then some place our watermelon drink I’m gonna try to fill it up as much as possible up to half way because I want it to be a very even ratio between the watermelon juice and our opal that’s good and now let’s watch some magic happen it’s so cool how the milk kind of just separates from the juice alright at Bupa mofo be somehow make the watermelon and the milks separate so hopefully I can achieve that as well okay mine did not mix so I have no idea how what voodoo magic you guys do to make it separate like that but this still looks pretty cool but that looks really cool maybe I needed to strain the watermelon pulp but I kind of like having it [Music] super tasty either way mmm which creamy and milky yet refreshing with the watermelon you definitely get that POW from the watermelon which is so good mmm try this at home you guys let me know what you think okay so this next one is actually one that I grew up having all the time – the boba but I thought it would go really well with boba and it’s super kid friendly we have a kid here that will be helping me see hi CeCe go say hi to the camera I know say hi but basically it’s an avocado smoothie now if you guys have never tried an avocado smoothie it’s pretty delicious it’s creamy and uh okay let’s spoon it you want to put it in the blender yay and then I like adding half a banana just to make it extra creamy do you want to add half a banana okay yeah you can hold it you can hold it gang you can eat it and then some condensed milk the banana already provides it with a little bit of sweetness but the condensed milk will just kind of balance it all out I’m adding maybe a tablespoon or two here some crushed ice or lattes now at this point you can add any kind of milk you have I have only or I have regular milk yeah I think I’ll do regular milk well no mommy will do it okay just a little bit mommy will do it we might have to add a little bit more milk later to thin it out but I’ll see after i blend it up close the cat nope nope that looks so yummy it looks like matcha kinda you wanna try it yeah delicious we’re gonna add boba just into mine Cece you’re too young for boba you can

Tapioca Pearls & Bubble Tea [Recipe]

Video Transcript

Hi guyss :)) Long time so see, I miss y’all so much :< Today, I'm gonna show you guys how to make black tapioca pearls, it's a piece of cake but sooo gudd :)) After that I'll tell y guys bout my cat in the previous video... First of all is the tapioca pearls. You have to mix 125g tapioca starch and 10g cacao powder in a CAT bowl (if you dont have cacao powder, you can use rice flour/tapioca starch) dont tell me you haven't got this cat bowl yet. Muahahahahaha Hu hu it reminds me of my cat breaking 2,3 cat bowls at once. I just want to kill him :( At 3am, his nails got stuck in the tablecloth, THENN he pulled it and dropped all the things . I almost had a heart attack. Ah leave the cat bowl besides and let's move on to cook the sugar. Put 60g black sugar in the pot (supermarkets sell a lot) Along with that is 5g tapioca starch and 70ml water mix it gently for the flour to dissolve After that put it on the stove with low heat. Cook and mix at the same time beause the mixture is cooked real fast Keep mixing until it get condensed like this Immediately turn off the the gas Then take a cat bowl, oh wait you dont have any. Poor you :)) Take the tapioca flour and cacao powder that already mixed in the the pot right after that (dont turn on the stove) mix the flour well with sugar mixture. But be careful, this stupid tapioca is heavy and easy to splash everywhere. You should gently mix it and will knead it later. The mixture when mixing in the pot will be be very dry, it hasn't absorb the water yet. Pour it on the table and knead by hand when it's still warm At first the flour will be separated and a little bit hot. But try around few mins Be careful, don't get burn, I will be hurted hihihi Remember to look at how to knead, not the hands :)) It's really hot. I was about to make cake. But it's too hot I decide to make boba It's too hot my armpit flow like a Niagara fall. Haizz what chu looking at? want me or what?? go away :)) Almost show my fat belly. But not at fat as someone who is watching :)) Just kidding, when the flour is smooth (around 5 mins) then stop. After that, shape the the flours, divide to 4 parts roll to a loooonnggg shape I request you to look at the flour, not my hands After that, use a knife or flour cutting tools to divide the flour into small pieces Remember to cut around 0.5cm only. If its too big, when boiling it wont cooked. Some people make that mistake When shaping it, you should cover the rest with wrapping paper, so it wont get dry Because this flour dry fast, when it got dried, you cant shape it This part looks so good for the eyes It looks like snow, I wish I can see a real snow once This is tapioca flour. After shaping, cover it with tapioca flour so it wont stuck together. After that put away the extra flour Hihi lemme flex on the bear pot. I cant stop looking at it Add the pearls into a boil water pot. More water After the the water boil again, begin to count the time. 20 mins, boil in medium heat. remember to check and stir it. If its burnt, you will eat pig porridge After done boiling, close the cover, let it sit still for 30 mins (dont touch it).This process helps the pearls to cook thoroughly. While waiting, I'll pretend to be cleaning, so you can see me being a good person :)) Pour the boil water into the bowl (Basically throw it away, we don't need it) Bring the cooked pearls into a different pot Add more 50ml of water Along with 35g brown sugar. You can adjust it. Place on the stove and continue to cook for the second times. This time you have to stir a lot After the mixture is boiled, turn it low. Cook and stir for around 5 mins, or until the mixture is condensed Like this, so when coating the the cup, it clings easily homemade pearl will be lighter than the the pearls in store. You can see its more brown that black. It's not transparent as the pearls outside, but still sticky and good. The pearls after cooked, should drink in around 3-5 hours. Dont put it in the fridge, it will get harden and bleh blehh Now I will make the milk tea. I'll divide into 2 recipes. It's up to you to choose which recipes First one, I will use 15g black tea. Anyone doesn't have the filter then byeee Just kidding, anyone who doesn't have it, you can pour the boiled water into the the tea. Then you can use the strainer. This recipe I used 200ml boiled water to brew The sound is so satisfy :)) Brew around 15-20 mins After done brewing, take the the leaves out. Add 20g brown sugar into the tea. You can adjust it Next is 60g mlk powder. I prefer using MT35, rich and doesn't affect the tea smell Shake it up guys, shake until they come together This is the last step to complete a cup of boba The sauce is coated around the the cup, very bootiful honey ah Add ices remember to let the drink cool off then you can add ices I think this milk tea recipe after cooking and brew in the the fridge for few hours is the bezt. ( when haven't added ice or pearls) See? Complete a perfect boba cup, the cat cup is so cute Now is the second recipe. The recipe is very easy, everyone can do it (his face looks irritated) First I want to flex on this cute cat hanging on the cup, because it's so ADORABLE why my stuff is always cuteeee. This recipe I used 2 black tea bags, and brew with 100ml boiled water The tea bag will brew faster, around 5-10mins is good After done brewing, dip for few times (squeeze it too, I just pretend to dip like that, but behind the scene is me squeeze the tea to death :)) See you cat in next videooo After done squeezing, add 20g brown sugar or white sugar . You can adjust it Let's finish the 2nd milk tea recipe This cup I'll add more pearls because I'm THIN, I drink it. And the other one for who is fat :) Do exactly the same things as the 1st recipe Pour the tea with sugar (cool down) into the cup Finally is 140ml non-sugar milk. It's so pretty when pouring milk into tea Because this one is not that rich, so I add more whipping (nah, Im lying, Im out of whipping so i took topping instead :)) sprinkle some cacao for fancy. And we done! Very easy right? The pearls are chewy. It tastes like in the store 95%. The milk tea smells good, rich and very good, but not as much as me. I prefer the 1st recipe Because using milk powder make the tea stand out, unlike fresh milk, its just not as good as Last video I told you guys about how my cat wont meow Wait, look at him. This stupid cat I swear I almost choke myself, he cant even bite it. why youre so stupidddd About the meowing, I'll tell you later in the next video. I keep guiding you guys so I forgot :)) Dont go out too much, just stay home and watch my youtube hihi :)) Will learn more good food, will find more gg or bf if you can learn :))
