Teasia Jasmine Green Bubble Milk Tea Recipe

Today we are sharing this wonderfully delicious recipe. If you’re looking to entertain some guests or just want to enjoy a glass of tea with a little bit of fun, try our Teasia Jasmine Green Bubble Milk Tea. This sweet drink is best enjoyed cold.

Teasia Jasmine Bubble Milk Tea

 

Ingredients

1 Teasia Jasmine Green Tea k-cup, brewed
1 Cup ice cubes
1-2 tablespoons (less if you like less sweet) of your favorite sweetener. We like agave nectar  (if you’re vegan) or sugar syrup (combine 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 cup dark brown sugar with 2 cups of water in a medium saucepan and stir over high heat. Once the syrup begins to simmer, remove from heat and cool before refrigeration. This syrup will last a month in a tightly sealed container ).
1/2 cup milk (soy, coconut or almond milk)
1/4 cup Tapioca Pearls aka Bubbles (you can find tapioca pearls at a fine online retail store. Follow instructions on the packaging)

Preparation

Brew your Teasia k-cup as you would in your Keurig. Combine the  jasmine tea with  ice, milk and sweetener. You may either blend all ingredients in a blender or use a cocktail shaker. Place  tapioca pearls in a tall glass. Pour tea mixture over pearls, and serve with a fat straw. Enjoy!

If you’re looking to make other milk teas, this recipe is great with our Teasia Green Tea as well as Teasia Black Tea from our Formosa Series.
