What is Bubble Tea?
Bubble Tea is a fun and playful drink from Taiwan. The recipe is simple and has endless different options: tea, fruit or tapioca pearls, taro syrup or powder and possibly milk or creamer. Just play around with the different flavours and ingredients to create whatever recipes you want. Bubble Tea is a delicious and refreshing drink. Sweet, fruity, tangy... so many different pleasures! Fruit or tapioca balls add an original and fun dimension to the experience. There's only one requirement: you need XXL straws to let the pearls through.
Taro powder for a Bubble Tea with the true taste of Taiwan
Taro is a food tuber from tropical regions. Its taste, similar to sweet potato, makes it an ingredient of choice in Taiwan for pastries, purees or even... drinks! Particularly popular for making Bubble Tea, Taro powder gives it sweetness and its characteristic little sugary nuances. Here we offer a powder made in Italy from natural flavors and without any artificial colouring for an authentic taste.
Carefully selected ingredients for Bubble Tea
It isn't always easy to find the ingredients you need to make a homemade bubble tea: rare, industrial format, too sweet, too chemical. The offer isn't very wide and not always high quality.
So, at My Bubble Tea we've attached particular importance to the quality of the elements of our Bubble Tea pack. The tea, like all the teas offered at Phileas Lounge, comes from organic farming. Tapioca pearls are a basis for making bubble tea. Easier and quicker to prepare than most other bases on the market, they allow you to find the real flavours of popping boba at the bottom of your glass. Finally, we decided to take advantage of this DIY Kit to introduce you to Taro powder - as close as possible to the original Taiwanese recipe. The powder is made in Italy, the cradle of gelati and gourmet milkshake, without artificial colouring and palm oil.
This is also the advantage of homemade Bubble Tea: you know exactly what's in it - and that can only be a good thing!
