How to Prepare Boba at Home

Boba, bubble tea, tapioca pearls… whatever you call it, we all love and definitely crave it.

Most of us visit local tea shops for our fix, but we wanted to make satisfying that endless boba craving easier. Like so easy, you don’t even need to leave your house.

Enter: Junbi cook-at-home boba pearls.

That’s right. We’re making the same boba we use in-stores available to you through our online shop! And the best part? Cooking boba for your matcha latte or milk tea is super simple — follow our recipe below for perfectly sweet and chewy boba!

Cook time: 40 min  |  Total time: 1 hr 15 min

Here's what you'll need:

INGREDIENTS

1/3 cup boba
4 cups water

Simple syrup
(2 tbsp sweetener of choice dissolved into 2 tbsp hot water)

TOOLS

measuring cups
pot with lid
wooden spoon
strainer 
drinking cup

Makes 1 serving

Here's how it's done:

STEP 1: BOIL WATER

Bring water to a rolling boil on high heat.

STEP 2: ADD BOBA

Carefully add boba (beware of hot water splashing back up!) and stir gently.

STEP 3: COOK BOBA

 Once your boba has risen to the top, reduce to medium high heat and cook for 40 minutes. Stir every 10 minutes to make sure they don’t stick together!

STEP 4: FINISH COOKING

Remove from heat and stir. Cover the pot and let boba sit for 20 minutes to finish cooking.

STEP 5: STRAIN & RINSE

Once the boba is finished, carefully drain and rinse with cold water.

STEP 6: COMBINE BOBA & SYRUP

Add simple syrup and boba into your cup and let it soak for 15 minutes.

STEP 7: ADD ICE & TEA

Fill your cup with ice and top with matcha or your choice of tea.

STEP 8: SHARE & ENJOY

Marvel at your beautiful creation, take some pictures for the ‘gram (tag us at @preparejunbi!), and enjoy your bubble tea!

Consume within 4-6 hours once cooked.
Keep cooked boba in syrup at room temperature and do not refrigerate.
