Instructions

  1. Make the Crunch

    • Combine all the dry ingredients for the crunch mix. In another bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients until just combined.
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, stirring until smooth. Allow this mixture to sit in the fridge for 2 hrs.
    • Preheat the oven at 170C with a rack in the upper section of the oven.
    • Place a 6-inch cast iron pan over low heat on the stove.
    • Remove the crunch batter from the fridge and whisk lightly to combine.
    • Using the flat edge of a spatula, quickly spread 1-2 tablespoons of the batter in a paper-thin layer onto the hot pan.
    • Place the pan in the oven and cook for 6-8 minutes until the crunch is golden brown.
    • Remove the crunch from the pan (it will harden when it cools), and repeat with remaining batter on the hot pan.
    • When all the crunch layers are cool and crispy, break them up with your hands into crumble, then immediately store in an airtight container.

    • Add the tea mixture and brown sugar to a small saucepan, and cook over low/medium heat till syrupy and reduced by half. Allow to cool.
    • Next, make the sweet cream by combining cream and icing sugar. Using a whisk or hand mixer, beat till you achieve a thick consistency that can be dolloped. Do not make it too stiff. Chill till ready to use.
    • In a blender, combine 1 ½ cups of ice, 200ml fresh milk and hojicha syrup. Blend till well blended and frosty.


  3. Assemble Hojicha Bubble Tea

    • Fill 2 tall pint glasses each with ¼ cup of crushed ice

    • Top the ice-blended with a tablespoon of boba pearls each.

    • Top the boba pearls with 2-3 tablespoons of sweetened cream each.

    • Gently place 3 teaspoons of crunch over the top of each drink and serve immediately.
