Boba fans will love this Orange Blossom Honey Bubble Tea Recipe to make your own tea at home – complete with tapioca pearls!
It combines chamomile tea with almond milk and is sweetened with tapioca pearls in orange blossom honey.
I LOVE bubble tea!! What I should actually say is that I LOVE the bubbles, or more accurately named – the tapioca pearls.
If you haven’t had bubble tea before (also known as boba tea), what gives it its name is those tapioca pearls, spongy little spheres made with tapioca starch. They’re so fun to eat – kind of like little surprises in the bottom of your drink.
But, for a bubble tea to be REALLY good, the tea part also needs to be delicious.
For a yummy and unique version, we have this Orange Blossom Honey Bubble Tea Recipe. It combines chamomile tea with almond milk and is sweetened with orange blossom honey.
Bubble tea is best to drink with a straw, but a regular straw won’t work! The bubbles are just too big to fit through. You can get wide bubble tea straws on Amazon. They’re very inexpensive!
If you want a more permanent solution that is reusable over and over again, grab these Mason Jar Glass Cups with Lids that come with a gold straw.
For another reusable option that isn’t glass and also adds insulation there are double-wall insulated boba cups too.
If you’re looking for a disposable option for an event or a large crowd, you can get disposable bubble tea cups with lids. Make your next party extra fun with this special drink!

I miss bubble tea! I grew up in Southern California and this was everywhere. Now I live in Wisconsin and it does not exist. I never thought to make it myself. Thanks for this recipe!
This is a very interesting drink. The name is confusing but the ingredients sound perfect for a new drink in my life.

I love Bubble tea! It never occurred to me to make it at home. I wonder if I can get the ingredients in the UK.
You should be able to order anything you can’t get there online. I do have a few Amazon links in the post that might help!
