GUSTA SUPPLIES Tapioca Pearl Boba, 300g

Gusta Supplies


Make your own bubble tea at home! 

Tapioca is the foundation for a bubble tea drink. These tapioca pearls are about the size of small marbles and have a distinctively chewy texture. The texture is very similar to Japanese mochi or gummy bears. If you can cook pasta, rice or ramen noodles, then you can definitely cook these tapioca pearls!

300g makes approximately 15 servings of 35g each.

How To Cook Tapioca Pearls

Water to tapioca ratio is 6:1 (for example, use 6 cups of water for 1 cup of tapioca).

Boil water in a large pot or a rice cooker.  Add the tapioca pearls to the boiling water. Stir the tapioca pearls gently until they begin to float.  Lower heat, and cook for 20 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the tapioca pearls sit for another 20 minutes. Rinse cooked pearls with cold water for about 3 minutes and drain. Cover with brown sugar or honey (optional) and serve.

How To Make Boba Tea

To make boba tea, begin by making your favourite tea for the base. Boba tea is traditionally made with black tea (try broken orange pekoe for a flavourful base), but you can also use green tea, fruit teas, flavoured mixes, or even coffee. Add the following to your glass in this order: a few spoonfuls of boba, several ice cubes, one cup of tea, 1 tablespoon of sweetener (i.e. sugar, honey, agave nectar, etc.) and 1/4 cup of milk.


Cooked tapioca boba: We recommend enjoying boba pearls within a few hours of cooking, although it can keep in the refrigerator for a few days. Store it in a simple syrup in the fridge. As time passes, the texture of the boba will change as it begins to lose its gummy consistency; simply reheat to restore its texture.

At Gusta Supplies, we curate our selection to reflect innovations and trends our customers appreciate.

We hope you find this as exciting as we do.
