It’s easy to understand how milk tea or Boba can become a quick obsession. My cupkeiki and I have become hooked. Yesterday we picked up purple (taro) tapioca pearls and Thai tea mix at our local international foods market (Rams Bazzar), and well…there is no more tapioca in our house. We’ve made a lot of Boba in the last 24 hours. Can you blame us though? It’s so delicious (and making it ourselves saves us quite a bit of money too).
For our Thai tea we used whole milk instead of sweet condensed milk, and added the brown sugar syrup we used on the Boba as the sweetner. It’s a lot less sweet than a traditional Thai tea, but still delicious and satisfying.
