Bubble tea is one of my favorite drinks to get when I am out shopping.  It’s such a fun, different drink that I can always try fun flavors of and I know that it will always be good! This summer, I discovered that you can make bubble tea right at home and it’s so easy to do!

Now as fun as classic bubble tea is, I love making fun different spins on it with exciting flavors.  My secret… simple syrups! They are so many different flavors that you can buy or make at home with just a few simple ingredients in less than 10 minutes!

For this recipe, I made a batch of raspberry simple syrup and peach simple syrup.  The combination of those flavors is a favorite of mine and was so perfect in bubble tea.

How to make raspberry peach bubble tea

Step 1 – Make tapioca pearls

To make the tapioca pearls, follow the instructions on the packaging.  For the ones I had, you bring a pot of water to a boil and then add the tapioca pearls in.  Once they start to float to the top, you bring the water down to a simmer for 3 minutes and then removed them from heat for 2 more minutes.  Then, you transfered them to a bowl of cold water for 30 seconds before serving.  I used about 1/4 cup of the tapioca pearls for each serving of bubble tea.

Step 2 – Make bubble tea

To make the bubble tea, you need to bring 1 cup of water to a boil before adding in 3 tea bags to steep for about 8-10 minutes.  You want to brew it strong so that because it will be watered down with milk.  Warm milk and pour that and either 1 tablespoon of honey or granulated sugar into the tea.  Stir until well combined.  You can add more or less sweetener to taste.

Now you will need to make the milk tea and then pour the milk tea right over the tapioca pearls.  Make sure to leave about 1/2 inch of room at the top so you can fit in the syrups and a straw into the cup.

Additionally, I bought my tapioca pearls online and had them shipped right to my house.  They are available at many Asian markets too but get them online is definitely the easiest option.  They cost less than $5.

Step 5 – Serve with straw

Lastly, pop in a large straw and stir in the syrups.  Serve immediately.

Make sure you have a big enough straw.  I tried using just a generic large straw the first time I made bubble tea but the bubbles kept getting stuck.  There are special bubble tea straws online that work perfectly for sucking up the bubbles that cost about $5 for a ton of them, I highly suggest picking those up.
