by Duane Tassinari on Mar 21, 2024

Calling all bubble tea enthusiasts! This summer, ditch the ordinary and embrace the extraordinary with a taste of Britain. We're brewing a vibrantly British bubble tea that celebrates the peak season bounty of fresh summer berries readily available across the UK.

This recipe, crafted with Next Gen Boba's premium powders and syrups, isn't just a drink; it's a refreshing summer symphony. Each sip bursts with the tangy sweetness of locally sourced berries, perfectly complemented by the chewy delights of tapioca pearls.

Not only is this recipe delicious, but it's also:

  • Easy to customize: Swap out fruits or add a splash of floral syrup for a personalized twist.
  • Budget-friendly: Skip the pricey bubble tea shops and create café-quality boba at home.
  • Perfect for summer picnics or afternoon tea with a British twist.

Ready to embark on your berry bubble tea adventure? Gather your ingredients and follow our step-by-step guide for a taste of summer magic.

Ingredients (makes 2 servings):

For the Tea:

  • 2 black tea bags (or loose leaf black tea equivalent)
  • 1 cup boiling water

For the Berry Base:

  • ½ cup frozen mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)
  • 2 tablespoons Next Gen Boba Premium White Grapefruit Syrup
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (freshly squeezed for best flavor)
  • 1 tablespoon honey or agave nectar (optional, for additional sweetness)

Boba Essentials:

  • ½ cup cooked tapioca pearls (purchase pre-cooked or follow package instructions for cooking your own)
  • Ice cubes

Optional Toppings:

  • Fresh berries for garnish
  • Whipped cream

Equipment:

  • Saucepan
  • Strainer
  • Mixing bowl or shaker
  • Boba cups with wide straws

Instructions:

  1. Brew the Tea: Bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a saucepan. Steep your black tea bags or loose leaf tea for 3-5 minutes, according to package instructions. Remove the tea bags and allow the tea to cool slightly.

Next Gen Boba Pro Tip: For a stronger tea base, use a double tea concentrate. Simply brew a full cup of tea and dilute it with water to half strength after steeping.

  1. Create the Berrylicious Base: Combine frozen mixed berries, Next Gen Boba Premium White Grapefruit Syrup, water, lemon juice, and optional honey or agave nectar in a blender. Blend until smooth.

Next Gen Boba Pro Tip: Fresh berries can be used instead of frozen, however, frozen berries will create a thicker, more slushy consistency, ideal for a hot summer day.

  1. Assemble Your Masterpiece: Strain the cooled tea into a mixing bowl or shaker. Add your cooked tapioca pearls and the blended berry mixture. Stir or shake gently to combine.

  2. Ice, Ice Baby! Fill your boba cups with ice cubes. Pour the berry bubble tea mixture over the ice.

  3. Topping Time! Now for the fun part! Garnish your bubble tea with fresh berries and a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.

  4. Enjoy! Grab your wide straw and savor your uniquely British bubble tea creation.

Customization Cravings?

  • Fruity Fiesta: Swap out the mixed berries for your favorite seasonal fruits, such as peaches, mangoes, or cherries.
  • Floral Flair: Add a splash of rosewater or lavender syrup to the berry mixture for a touch of floral elegance.
  • Milk Tea Magic: For a creamier version, substitute half of the water in the berry mixture with milk or cream.
