Brown Sugar Milk Tea Recipe

Is anyone else a Boba addict like me?!

I’m so excited to share this recipe with all of you!! Brown sugar milk tea is all the rage right now and no wonder because it’s amazing!! I don’t have any place near me that makes it so I decided I needed to learn how to make it at home and I am so glad I did and now I’m kind of addicted!! There are many different recipes out there so I played around until I found something that I loved. Most brown sugar milk tea recipes don’t actually have tea in them but I like the taste of a little tea in mine and since I use decaf tea I can drink it any time of the day and let the kids have some too without having to worry about the caffeine.

It looks a little daunting for one drink but once you get the hang of it it doesn’t take too long. Also, you can double or triple the brown sugar syrup recipe and store the syrup in a jar in your fridge for a few days so it’s ready when you want to make it again for a second time in a week!!

Makes roughly 30oz

Make the brown sugar syrup first and set aside

Brown sugar syrup
– 1/2 dark brown sugar
– 1/2 water

  1. Stir water and brown sugar in a small pot on the stove until dissolved on medium heat.
  2. Once combined bring mixture to a boil, boil on medium/low for about 1-2 minutes until it’s a syrup-like consistency

For the tea:

-4oz hot water
-2 decaf black tea bags
Boil water pour 4oz. in a cup and add 2 black tea bags, I used decaf so I can drink it anytime of day and the kids can too!

-10-12oz of milk(I used whole milk)
-A splash of heavy cream
-Tapioca Pearl (I order mine from Amazon, here’s the link to order, prepare the way it says on the back of the bag)

I used a 32 oz. glass jar for my cup! (here’s the ones I ordered, they come with the large boba straws)

1) Start by drizzling the cup with the brown sugar syrup and then pour the remaining in the bottom of the jar.

2) Add tapioca pearls to a jar, then fill the jar with ice.

3) Pour milk in, then tea, and top with a splash of heavy cream! I like the way it looks before I stir it all together but you’ll want to combine it all well before drinking to distribute the sugar, tea, and cream evenly.

I hope you all love this, it’s such a special treat in our house, my kids all ask to have some when I make it which is why I make such a large drink!! You could of course split it up into a few different glasses if you wanted each of you to have your own.
