About Blueberry Boba Tea

This homemade Blueberry Boba Tea (Blueberry Milk Bubble Tea) tastes just like your favorite cafe and can be made at a fraction of the cost using simple ingredients.

It is easy to make at home, needs simple ingredients, uses no artificial flavorings, and tastes much better than store-bought ones.

Like my Chai Tea Boba and Matcha Tea Boba, this Blueberry Tea Boba is also very refreshing.

Blueberry Bubble Tea has freshness from blueberries, creaminess from milk, and not to forget the chewy texture of the boba pearls.

Enjoy it on a hot summer day to freshen up, or make it to serve at barbeque brunches.

Ingredients

For The Blueberry Syrup

Make a blueberry syrup using fresh blueberries or frozen blueberries, granulated sugar, and water.

You can also use store-bought blueberry syrup if you are short on time.

For The Tea

I like to use green tea to make this drink, but you can also use black tea.

For The Boba Pearls

You will need dried boba pearls, which you can find in the Asian section of any grocery store. They are also available online.

You will need sugar and honey to sweeten the boba pearls.

Others

You will also need milk and ice cubes.

I prefer regular dairy milk, but for a vegan version, you can use plant-based milk such as almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk, or oat milk.
