Also known as “Bubble Tea,” boba is a type of tea latte made with chewy, edible tapioca pearls. Our recipe incorporates matcha green tea powder for a satisfying umami flavor and added nutrient boost.

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS: Matcha Boba Tea

Total Prep Time: About 10 minutes

Servings: 1

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cups cold milk of your choice
  • 1/4 cup dry tapioca pearls (AKA boba)
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup (or honey)
  • 1 Tablespoon Sencha Naturals Organic Matcha Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut sugar or honey (to sweeten boba)
  • Dash of vanilla extract 
  • Additional sweetener to taste

DIRECTIONS

  1. Prepare tapioca pearls as per instructions on packaging. Then strain and cover with coconut sugar (or honey). 
  2. Create a “matcha shot” by whisking matcha with a touch of hot water until a smooth paste forms, with no clumps remaining. Pour matcha paste into glass.
  3. Add milk, and stir in honey/maple syrup, a dash of vanilla extract, and sweeten to taste.
  4. Add ice if desired, and enjoy!

NOTES

  • Straws: Boba is traditionally enjoyed with wide-mouth straws, but you can also use a spoon to scoop the pearls. (Please see precaution below for young children.)
  • Milk: Any dairy-free milk alternative will work.
  • For vegan recipes, substitute honey with maple syrup

*Not recommended for younger children: Although boba is safe and edible, its small size may pose a choking hazard to children under 5. For older children, please have them consume boba only with a spoon, not a straw.
