Perfect Bubble Tea Experience
Drinking the Perfect Bubble Tea includes the perfect texture of
the tapioca bubbles or “boba.”
The perfect texture meaning, not too soft and not too
hard. The perfect chewiness is similar to a fresh gummy bear.
In addition, the drink should be smooth and tasty.
The cool beverages should have a good taste and a
refreshing feeling. The warm beverages should be at the
right temperature to warm one's inside. Bubble drinks come in a variety of flavors and textures. Some
are made with fresh fruit, some with the Bubble Tea Supply
flavored powders and some with the flavored syrups.
However the drink is mixed, it should not be watery.
There should be a clear and distinct flavor with
every drink enjoyed with bubbles or “boba” to chew down with
Cream Flavored Powder:
Cream Flavored Powders vary in quality, amount of servings
and price. They are separated into A, B&C
grades. We recommend the "A" grade due to
better taste, texture and cost per serving.
"B&C" grades are the most common in the
marketplace and are referred to as market grade.
Cream Flavored Powders are created from three main
1. Fruit flavoring
Bubble Tea Supply’s Premium Grade "A"
powders have a strong fruit flavoring because the juices of
the fruit are used to create the flavor.
The percentage and type of fruit flavoring used
differs between the Premium Grade “A” and market
Some of the Premium Grade “A” powders contain as
much as 75% of the fruit flavoring.
This gives your bubble tea a more natural, real and
creamy “fruit” taste.
Our market grade “B&C” products have less
fruit flavoring, however, still replicates a bit of the real
fruit. In our
market grade “B&C” products, there is a higher
percentage of creamer and sweetener added.
The sweetener that is used also makes a difference in the
flavor of the drink. Premium grade "A"
powders have a much more natural taste. Sometimes when
lower grade sweeteners are used there may be an artificial
taste or even an aftertaste.
Juice Flavored Powder:
Juice Flavored Powder are created to provide the sweet and
tantalizing taste of exotic fruits. The
juice powder is most commonly used as an option to adding a
sweet juice flavor to black or green tea.
It is not recommended to be used with a creamer, as
the drink will curdle at the top after the drink sits for a
few minutes and looks unappetizing.
Juice Flavored Syrups:
The Juice Flavored Syrups are a strong thick concentrate
used to infuse black or green tea with fruit flavors or for
frozen blended bubble tea.
Created from the juices of the real fruit, it is hard
to tell the difference between fresh fruit and our bubble
tea syrups. Some syrups even contain pieces of real
fruit in them (i.e. strawberry bits, passion fruit seeds and
the like). Most
syrups have a sweet and citrus taste, depending on the flavor
and provide a light and refreshing taste enhancing the
flavor of the tea.
Although the flavored powder has a milk powder
already in the ingredients, using an
additional creamer provides body to the bubble tea. We
recommend a powdered non-dairy creamer, half n' half, or
- Powdered non-dairy creamer is available
in a variety of brands and seems to fulfill the same taste and
body to bubble tea. This is the most common form of
creamer used in most bubble tea shops.
Some prefer not to use the non-dairy
creamer as it sometimes is more difficult to dissolve in the
drink. To get rid of the bits of creamer when preparing
the bubble tea, use a warm liquid
to dissolve the powders
first. Another option if warm liquid is not available,
is to make sure that the drink is shaken really well.
Vigorous shaking will ensure the powders are fully dissolved.
- Half n' half is another option and adds a
thicker body to the drink. When using half n' half, your
bubble tea will taste more like ice cream or a milk shake. Using half n' half makes the bubble tea rich in
flavor and is a favorite among coffee drinkers.
- When using milk, whole milk is
suggested. Milk gives your bubble tea a more naturally
creamy taste and texture. The thickness of your bubble
tea may become thinner. If making a blended bubble tea with milk as a
creamer, the drink replicates a fruity milk shake.
While the flavored powder already has a
sweetener included in its mix, it is recommended to add a bit more
sweetener to your bubble tea. These are the most
commonly used sweeteners.
- Using white or brown sugar is
preferable. These are normally made into simple
sugar syrup. The sweetness
brings out the fruit flavoring more when the drink is at a
cold temperature. Cane sugar and simple sugar syrup is the
most recommended sweetener as it adds a more natural taste and
adds the perfect sweetness in the bubble tea.
- Fructose is also very popular. Fructose is a sweetener that is taken from
the juices of fruits. Fructose provides the bubble tea
with a thicker body, yet has a different taste.
Fructose is preferred by shops catering to those with sugar
sensitivity. Fructose is typically less expensive than
pure cane sugar syrup.
- Honey can be used to provide a
lighter sweetness to the bubble tea. Once again, the
taste and texture are different but preferred by some.
Honey can also be used to sweeten the tapioca pearls.
in Bubble Tea:
the drink first originated from a mix of real tea and fruit
flavoring, this fun drink has recreated itself to being
known as a tea, coffee, or smoothie with tapioca on the
bottom known as “bubbles.”
Adding tea to the drink is not recommended for all of the
course, depending on the taste preference of the customer, you will want
to satisfy their taste buds. Black and Green Jasmine Teas have a refreshing sweet taste
when flavored syrup or juice flavored powders are shaken
with simple sugar syrup.
tea powder can be substituted for brewed tea.
The cream flavored powders create the best flavored
bubble tea when shaken with filtered water, creamer and
simple sugar syrup.
Milk can also be substituted for the water and creamer.
The texture of the tapioca
pearl is one of the most
important parts of making a Perfect Cup of Bubble Tea.
There are two colors available, the traditional black
tapioca pearl and the new colored tapioca pearl that comes
in pastel colors. As another "fun" option,
coconut meat with a gelatin-like texture can also be added
to the bottom of the bubble tea. Coconut
meat is also fun to suck up through the fat straw and will tantalize
your taste buds with flavors such as lychee and pineapple.
Coconut meat can be used in addition to tapioca or as an
There are also two types of tapioca pearls available, the semi-cooked tapioca pearl and raw tapioca pearl. The semi-cooked tapioca pearl in its uncooked state is harder making it more resilient to shipping. The preparation time is about 10 minutes less than the raw tapioca and an unopened bag of semi-cooked tapioca will have a slightly longer shelf life. The downside to semi-cooked tapioca is that the pearl is not as chewy as the raw tapioca. Semi-cooked tapioca also loses its chewiness faster than the raw tapioca.
Bubble Tea supply sells raw tapioca in its highest quality to insure you serve the Best Tapioca Pearls. The raw tapioca pearl is recommended because the texture is more chewy and will stay chewy longer. You will notice after opening the bag that the raw tapioca pearl is very delicate. If pinching a pearl between two fingers, the pearl breaks easily into powder.
While preparing the tapioca pearl, you want to decide if you
would like to serve your pearls harder or soft.
Tapioca pearls are served at different consistencies
worldwide, and are usually done on preference.
It should have a good texture though, not too hard
(like an old gummy bear) and not too mushy (like a Juju Bee
candy). You can
follow our Virtual recipe book under the recipe section to
prepare your tapioca pearl at the suggested texture.
When comparing Bubble Tea Supply tapioca pearl with the
competition, you’ll notice that Bubble Tea Supply tapioca
pearls hold together well throughout the day while retaining
a chewy texture. It is not recommended to reuse left over tapioca pearls, as your
customers will notice a difference in texture.
We compare the tapioca to fried chicken. Fried chicken
is very good when it's first cooked but if you try to serve
it the following day it isn't the same. The same goes
for tapioca. If it’s your customer’s first experience with
“old tapioca” Bubble Tea, it may be their last!
