I am in love with bubble tea, specifically strawberry bubble tea - blended or iced, it's all good to me. Yep, it's almost fall. But I can't be the only one who drinks bubble tea all year round right? I've been more obsessed, actually, now that I've discovered the secret to making really good bubble tea. It's in the strawberry syrup - I made it from scratch following the recipe from Use Real Butter., halved it and added about 1/2 tsp cornstarch and 1/4 cup sugar
since I love being on a sugar high. So, without further ado, here's the recipe that will knock your socks off!
Strawberry Bubble Tea
1 1/2 cups strawberry syrup from scratch
2 1/2 cups water
2 Lipton tea bags
boba (tapioca) pearls
Cook your boba pearls according to the package's direction. While that's cooking, steep 2 bags of tea in 1/2 cup of water, for around 5 minutes. Transfer the boba pearls to your glass, add a spoonful of strawberry syrup. Mix water, tea and the remaining strawberry syrup in a beverage container. Fill your glass about 1/4 of the way with ice, and then fill it with the tea - add strawberry syrup to taste.
Look at that goodness. Sometimes I like blending it with ice to make it slushy and a bit frothy. I seriously crave for some everytime I see this photo. Well, I'm off to fixing me some again!
