Ever since bubble tea was struck off the list of essential services during the Covid-19 circuit breaker, BBT fans have been dealing with six long weeks without their favourite beverage fix.
If you’re one of those people, why not make some homemade bubble tea with these 5 easy recipes. Bonus: You’ll save money, too!
1. Brown Sugar Bubble Tea
Try your hand at making your own brown sugar pearl bubble tea from scratch (pearls included, if you can’t get or don’t like the idea of store-bought tapioca pearls). The recipe, according to the article, also turns out chewier pearls for those of you who prefer your boba with more bite.
