DIY Bubble Tea 3 Ways

If you live on bubble tea, these bubble tea recipes could be your life-saver. Whip up three popular favourites, from caramel-edged gula melaka (or brown sugar) milk, to a citrusy sweet honey lemon yakult one, and the cult-classic: smoky earl grey milk tea. You’ll need a bit of a strong wrist for all the constant stirring (to prevent the bobas from sticking). Otherwise, it only needs a few inexpensive ingredients, 20 mins of time, and a big straw to suck up all those sweet chewy tapioca pearls.
