Taro Milk Tea

We made milk tea before and it was the red bean flavour this time we will be doing taro milk tea which my wife and daughter had requested for quite some time now. Like before this is more of a trial recipe because the real thing that is sold in bubble tea shops ironically does not have the real ingredient but uses artificially flavoured powdered mixes. So, with our recipe today, I basically used my old red bean bubble tea recipe as that proved to be popular and good, in which I replaced the red bean with taro, everything else was pretty much the same.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Tapioca Pearls
  • 3 bags black Tea
  • 4 cups boiling water
  • 1½ cup evaporated milk
  • ¾ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • Ice
Taro Paste
  • 150 g taro
  • 1½ cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
Tapioca Pearls
  1. Place water in a pot then bring to a boil. Add black tapioca pearls and sugar then cook until soft. Drain then set it aside.
Taro Paste
  1. Place 1½ cups water and taro in pot, bring to a boil then simmer for 30-40 minutes or until the taro are soft.
  2. Place taro, sugar and remaining water in a food processor then process until it becomes a smooth paste..
  1. Brew the tea in boiling water, place evaporated milk, condensed milk, tea and around 6 heaping tablespoons of the taro paste in a blender, blend until frothy.
  2. Place milk tea in tall glasses, add some cooked sweetened tapioca pearls, add ice then serve.
You can adjust creaminess of this bubble tea by reducing hot water and replacing it with equivalent amount of evaporated milk, same with its sweetness just replace water with condensed milk.
You can also adjust the strength of the tea by adding or removing tea bags.
