To Make The Tea to make the tea


  • Add the teabag, sugar, and condensed milk into a cup and pour in some hot water.
  • Don’t let the teabag steep for too long as this may take away the milky taste of the tea.
  • Leave the tea to cool down while you prepare the boba balls!

  • Add water and brown sugar into a pot on medium to low heat.
  • Once the brown sugar has fully dissolved into the water, take the pot off the heat and add 1 tbsp of tapioca starch into the mixture.
  • After the tapioca starch has dissolved, put the pot back on the heat and stir the mixture until it thickens.
  • Turn the heat off and add ihe rest of the tapioca starch into the pot and start mixing it. This is to ensure that the tapioca starch and the brown sugar mixture are mixed and stick together. (You can use your hands but be careful as it is still hot!)
  • Take the dough and transfer it onto a clean surface that has already been dusted with tapioca starch.
  • Knead the dough till it has a smooth consistency. Roll out the dough and cut it into smaller chunks.
  • Take each chunk and roll it out even further into a thin log (about 2cm thick). Cut the thin log into even smaller pieces.
  • Take each small piece and shape it into a boba ball by rolling them in between your palms. (The boba ball will expand when boiling so make sure it’s not too big!)
  • Once you’re done shaping each piece into a boba ball, place it in a bowl lightly dusted with tapioca starch so that the boba balls don’t stick to each other.
  • Place all the boba balls into a pot of boiling water and wait for them to start floating.
  • Once the boba balls start floating, let them boil for another 15 minutes
  • After 15 minutes, turn off the stove and let the boba balls sit in the pot of water for another 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, dunk the boba balls into a bowl of ice water for a chewier consistency!
