Boba Brown Sugar Tapioca Balls 9.5mm, 3kg


Boba brown sugar tapioca balls are a key ingredient in Taiwanese bubble tea. Made with premium tapioca powder, the cooked pearls have a chewy, bouncy texture and sweet, brown sugar flavour. 

Boba tea is a milk-based drink with a handful of the pearl balls at the bottom of the glass – sucked up through an extra-wide straw. Tapioca pearls are also used in South Asian desserts. Boil them with coconut milk until they take on a jelly baby-like consistency, or simply mix with sugar and honey.

Here’s everything you need to know about bubble tea.

Follow these instructions to cook the tapioca balls:

  1. Recommended cooking ratio: 1g of tapioca ball to 7ml of water (minimum)
  2. Cook the tapioca balls in boiled water with high heat. Stir the balls gently.
  3. When the balls are floating, cook them with medium heat for 20 minutes. Stir the balls occasionally to prevent sticking to the pot and to each other.
  4. Turn off the heat, cover the lid, and leave the balls in the pot for 25 minutes.
  5. Put the pearls in a sieve, rinse them with cold water until the cores of the balls are cooled down.
  6. Filter the balls, put them in a bowl, and fully soak them with hazelnut or brown sugar syrup.
  7. Leave the whole bowl of tapioca balls for 30 minutes, and wait to experience the greatest taste and chewiest texture.

The cooked tapioca balls are suggested to be consumed within 4-6 hours.
