32g · Dried Boba Tapioca Pearls
1 tsp · Twinings Matcha Powder
200ml · Dairy-free milk (we used oat milk)
1 tbsp · Honey or agave nectar
- Measure 480 ml of water for every 32 grams of Boba. Bring the water to a boil over high heat.
- 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.
- Whilst the Boba is cooking, make your matcha tea.
- Add the matcha powder, honey or maple syrup and teaspoon of water to a cup and whisk into a paste.
- Add the milk to a frother or whisk.
- Gently pour onto your matcha paste and leave to cool.
- 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.
- 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.
- Pour the matcha tea into a tall glass, add the Boba, and stir. Finally, you can add a teaspoon more of honey to taste.
