It is common to find local restaurants and cafes serving boba in their refreshing drinks: iced teas, smoothies, milk tea, iced coffee, or slushes. However, it takes about one hour to prepare this uniquely chewy add-on. This doesn’t make it efficient for your business needs, especially with the summer rushes coming soon. To keep up with the popular demand, Tea Zone offers a solution to cooking tapioca pearls in a significantly less amount of time.

This Instant 10 Tapioca Pearls product only has a 10-minute cook time. It still provides the same soft exterior with chewy interior that your customers have grown to love.

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. In a 4 qt. sauce pot, add at least 32 oz. of water and bring to a boil over high heat. Remember to use a lid to reduce the cooking time.
  2. Place 16 oz. of Tea Zone Instant 10 Tapioca Pearl (Boba) into the boiling water and stir (approx. 15-30 seconds) to keep them separated and from clumping.
  3. Start timer for 10 minutes, and boil while covered on high heat.
  4. When the timer goes off, turn off the heat and let it sit an additional 15 minutes while covered.
  5. Carefully strain and rinse the boba in a large colander to remove excess starch before soaking in a sugar mixture.
  6. Let the boba soak for 10 minutes prior to serving, and stir the cooked boba every hour.
  7. Best used within 6 hours of preparing.
