Black tapioca pearls, also known as boba, are the perfect “bubbles” in bubble tea. They are small, round balls made from tapioca starch for a sweet and somewhat gummy consistency. Ours are the same boba pearls as those used at gourmet pearl milk tea shops. Also delicious in desserts, black tapioca pearls are a versatile treat.

How To Cook Tapioca Pearls

Water to tapioca ratio is 6:1 (for example, use 6 cups of water for 1 cup of tapioca).

Boil water in a large pot or a rice cooker. Add the tapioca pearls to the boiling water. Stir the tapioca pearls and cover (don’t open the cover until it is fully cooked). Cook for 45 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the tapioca pearls sit for 30 minutes. Rinse cooked pearls with warm water for about 3 minutes and drain. Cover with brown sugar or honey (optional) and serve.

How To Make Boba Tea

To make boba tea, begin by making your favorite tea for the base. Boba tea is traditionally made with black tea, but you can also use green tea, fruit teas, flavoured mixes, or even hot chocolate or coffee. Add the following to your glass in this order: a few spoonfuls of boba, several ice cubes, one cup of tea, 1 tablespoon of sweetener (i.e. sugar, honey, agave nectar, etc.) and 1/4 cup of milk or milk alternative. 

What Are Tapioca (Boba) Pearls?

Tapioca pearls are gummy-like spheres made from the starch of the cassava root, a plant native to South America that is now cultivated throughout the world. The round tapioca pearls are produced by passing the moist starch through a sieve under pressure. That starch is often combined with flavoring to sweeten the pearls. Dried tapioca pearls (like these) must be cooked prior to eating.

Testimonials

I have been obsessed for 2 years now with this tea. The blends are incredible. They use REAL ingredients and don't try to fake it with 'natural flavours' like Davids Tea

I'm into drinking teas and Lemon Lily Tea is one of my favourite in Canada. Its natural and organic loose leaf teas are remarkably fresh and the prices are reasonable.
