32g · Dried Boba Tapioca Pearls

2 · Twinings Earl Grey Tea Bag

200ml · Milk or dairy-free milk

1 tbsp · Honey or agave nectar



  1. Measure 480 ml of water for every 32 grams of Boba. Bring the water to a boil over high heat.
  2. Add the Boba and stir gently until the pearls begin floating to the top of the water. Lower the heat and cook the Boba for 12-15 minutes. Remove the pan from heat, cover, and let the pearls sit for another 12-15 minutes. Or use quick-cook tapioca pearls and follow the instructions on the packet.
  3. Boil the kettle and make a strong cup of Twinings Earl Grey tea. Use two tea bags for a stronger flavour. Leave to brew for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Let the tea cool.
  5. Once the Boba has finished cooking, drain it and put it in a bowl. Pour a tablespoon of honey and mix the Boba until coated with honey.
  6. Let it sit until the Boba is at room temperature, at least 15 minutes, or refrigerate until ready to use. Boba is best if used within a few hours of cooking but will keep refrigerated for several days. The Boba will gradually harden and become crunchy as they sit.
  7. Pour the tea into a tall glass and add the Boba. Add the milk and stir. Finally, you can add a teaspoon of honey to taste.
  8. Enjoy!
