Black Pearls and Aloe Vera Jelly Bubble Tea


Bubble Tea Craze... yes.. that's the "IN" thing for Mr H Jr and Miss E... a 'must have' whenever they are let 'loose' in the city (so to speak... happy)...  Ask them and they will be able to guide you  to the best Bubble Tea shop in Perth... they may even tell you which shop has a good offer for an upgrade... 

Its nothing fancy schmancy really... just a huge size black tapioca pearls, some jelly with some option of flavoured fruity tea... This is my first attempt in making Bubble Tea... some of the ingredients were sourced from local Asian grocer...black tapioca pearls, aloe vera drink and konyaku jelly...

Be creative....~ you can add colorful jelly, fruity jelly... or anything you desire... the only thing that would stop us from enjoying this Bubble Tea is....
Our Imagination .big grin...


 Black Tapioca Pearls and Aloe Vera Jelly...

 Pour in some brown sugar syrup
 Followed by strong Black Tea.. or any type of Tea
 Finally ... add some milk and ice cubes...
I dont have ice cubes tray hence no ice cubes in mine blushing

Get ready for hot summer days with Bubble Tea ... with ice cubes of course... share with me your Bubble Tea experience and creation...
  • a packet of dried Black Tapioca pearls
  • 650 ml Aloe Vera juice
  • 125g Konyaku Powder
  • 2 Earl Grey teabags
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • milk or cream
Bring 8 cups of water to boil (in a big pot)... add black tapioca pearls. Keep stirring gently... bring to boil again... then lower the heat to a simmer for 5 minutes. Drain and soak in cold water (to stop further cooking and sticky). Repeat the steps few times and last step is to soak the black pearls in cold water. Put aside.

In another pot... bring aloe vera juice to a boil and add in Konyaku powder. Simmer for 2-3 minutes or until the powder has dissolved. Pour into a tray and leave it to cool. Once the aloe vera jelly has cooled, cut into cubes.

Syrup~ Mix brown sugar with water and bring to boil in a pot... Keep stirring until sugar dissolves..

Black Tea ~ Place 2 Earl Grey teabags in a milk pot with 500 ml water... bring to a rapid boil for 1 minute and leave it to steep until we are ready to have some Bubble Tea....

Spoon cut up Aloe vera jelly, black tapioca pearls, brown sugar syrup in a tall glass. Pour in strong black tea and milk.... Enjoy...
