Taro Milk Tea – A Beautiful Mess


Taro milk tea is one of the most popular bubble tea drinks that I typically see on menus. While it is of course not necessary to add boba pearls to your taro milk tea, it will be more enjoyable if you do. πŸ™‚ This drink is a vibrant lavender-purple color and is made with taro root, fermented tea, and milk.

What is taro? Taro is a starchy root vegetable often grown in Southeast Asia. They are similar to sweet potatoes or yams, but have a different flavour. While you can use raw taro root to make taro milk tea, I almost always use it Taro powder Because it makes the process much easier and I think it’s just as good.

ingredients

  • Taro powder
  • Tea – jasmine, black or green
  • Milk – Dairy products or a milk substitute such as soy or oat
  • Boba pearls
  • Sweetener, optional – Simple syrup is a great option

Some taro powders already contain a sweetener, so check the label or taste your taro milk tea before adding more.

Prepare your boba pearls and allow them to cool before using them in any frozen drink recipe.

Prepare the tea and leave it to cool. I tend to brew a very strong tea because I don’t use much in this recipe.

In a large cup or mug, whisk together the milk and taro powder. I will often use a Frothy stick To combine the powder quickly and well. But you can do this by hand using a small whisk or, if the cup has a lid, shake well to dissolve the powder.

In a cup, add the boba balls and then the ice. Pour into your tea. Then pour in the taro milk. Taste and stir in more sweetener if you feel it needs it.

Tips for success

  • I often brew the tea hot and simply let it cool before adding it to this iced beverage. But you can also learn how to brew cold tea if you want to prepare a larger batch.
  • You will want to serve any bubble tea drink with big straw, So the boba pearls will fit into the straw while drinking. A standard sized straw will be too small.
  • You can prepare the tea as well as taro milk ahead of time and simply store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator at least 3 days before use.
