Ingredients For Bubble Tea:

3 tbsp black tapioca pearls, cooked to pack instructions in boiling water
2 tsp caster sugar
250ml water
2 tbsp loose black tealeaves
50ml evaporated milk
1 tbsp condensed milk

Ingredients for Cheese Cream Topping (Optional):

1 tbsp cream cheese
2 tbsp double cream
1 tsp more caster sugar
Pinch of salt


1. Drain your cooked tapioca ad stir in the caster sugar.

2. Place the water in a pan and bring to the boil. Add the tea leaves and simmer for two minutes, before draining and discarding the tea leaves.

3. Whisk together the two milks in a small bowl.

4. If you're adding the cheese cream topping, make it now simply by stirring all the ingredients together.

5. Layer up your bubble tea: tapioca, followed by ice, then the tea, milk, and cheese cream.

Stir well, enjoy, and have fun.
