If you like your bubble tea with bubbles (frothy), place the following together in a shaker and shake it up. Tip:
I find it's easier not to include the tapioca pearls in the shaking, as pouring out the pearls makes for messy business. For each cup of bubble tea, add to your shaker or cup:
1/4 cup of tea
1/4 cup of the mango syrup
1/3 to 1/2 cup coconut milk*
1/4 cup tapioca pearls
extra syrup or sugar to sweenten your bubble tea, according to your preference
some crushed ice (or ice cubes)
*If you prefer a creamier bubble tea, only add 1/4 cup coconut milk and then top up with 1/4 cup regular milk, cream, or several Tbsp. sweetened condensed milk. A creamy, good-tasting soy milk can also be used.
Usually bubble tea comes in a huge cup. If you want a similar sized serving, simply double the amounts listed here (you should have enough ingredients for 2 large cups of bubble tea).
