How to Make Mango Bubble Tea

Step 1

To start let’s get a pot of water boiling for our tea. Typically we like to use fresh green tea leaves for our tea blend, we believe it adds a nice aroma to the vibrant mango bubble tea. While we wait for the water to boil, let’s begin chopping up some mango.

If you want this process to go a bit faster you can also use an electric water kettle, we tend to use this at the office from time to time. You know, writing boba articles takes a lot of time so we need all the time we can save! 

Step 2

Grab your favorite cutting board and go-to kitchen knife and let’s get to chopping! Begin slicing your mango long ways so that you make 2 identical slices. Remember there’s a pit within mangoes so be careful! 

Once you have your two slices, you can begin scooping out the fruity flesh with a spoon into a kitchen blender or food processor. Once you have everything all cut up and placed in the blender or food processor, you may begin blending! This should only wake about 20-30 seconds to get a good puree. 

Remember! By this time your water should be boiling nicely now. If it’s at a rumbling boil, turn down the heat to medium and add your fresh green tea leaves. Let the green tea steep for 3-5 minutes before taking it off the heat to cool. 

Step 3

Once your green tea is finished taking a bath in the hot water for a bit, take it off the heat and let it cool to the side. While that cools we’re going to begin cooking the delicious tapioca pearls. 

Bring a pot of water to a rumbling boil again and cook your tapioca pearls for 15-20 minutes. You can also follow the directions on the package if you buy your tapioca pearls from your local asian supermarket. 

Once you’ve finished cooking your tapioca pearls you may strain the excess water and place your tapioca pearls in a bowl of simple syrup. Strainers like this work the best, those with big holes will make your boba pearls slip right through, we don’t want that now do we? Typically the syrup can be a mixture of brown sugar and water but you can get creative with it too! Some people like to use other sweeteners like maple syrup and honey. 

Step 4

Now the final steps, putting it all together. First we need to mix or blend the mango puree, freshly brewed and cooled green tea, creamer (we love using almond milk) and your handful of ice together. The consistency we want is similar to a slightly runny slushy, typically a few pulses with your blender will do the trick. We ultimately want the ice to be shredded enough so it’s easy to consume. 

Step 5

Once you’ve blended the mango bubble tea mixture nicely, grab your favorite glass for bubble tea. Add your cooked boba pearls to your glass and then simply pour the rest of the mango green tea mixture into your glass.

Top if off with a large boba straw and you’re ready to go! How was that for a delicious mango bubble tea recipe? Simple right? Let us know how yours tastes like!
