Bubble Tea

I love Bubble Tea and my niece Katie!!!!
When I open I my tea shop I will sell Bubble Tea- that is a given!!!!
Bubble tea
Boba milk tea, also known as pearl milk tea or PMT, is a Taiwanese tea-based drink invented in tea shops in Taichung, Taiwan, during the 1980s. Most bubble tea recipes contain a tea base mixed...
I discovered Bubble Tea in 2011 or 2012 in Portland OR.  We were at the Saturday Market in Portland.  I now seek it out where ever I can!  I have had it several times in Oregon, once in Munich, Germany, and once in Strongsville, Ohio.
The best I ever had was  Tea Chai Te in Sellwood, OR

Portland’s Original Bubble Tea

Brought to Portland in 2003 when we first opened, we fell in love with sharing this incredible Taiwanese tea specialty.

All bubble teas will be made iced unless requested otherwise.

Made with a non-dairy creamer, we can easily substitute for cow’s milk, soy, rice or hemp milk. 
Green tea will be used if not requested otherwise.


A fruity, creamy iced bubble tea with your choice of fruit flavor(s) & made with your choice
of creamy green tea, yerba máte or rooibos.

Yes, some like it hot! A really special treat to try,
these milk bubble teas can be made with any dairy substitute as well.



You can now try any of your favorite milk teas as a blended smoothie!

(Currently in Sellwood only)

Our bubble teas are available in 27+ flavors, please see tea shops for current offerings.

my favorite Bubble Tea is Lavender with milk
Katie has discovered a love for Bubble Tea too.  I love that she shares photos with me when she drinks Bubble Tea. I can not wait to go Washington next year and share a cup with her.  And now I found on line, that you can make it at home!!!!

Can you make Bubble Tea???
To make bubble tea you will need white sugar, pearl tapioca, and
brewed black tea. You will also need milk and ice cubes. To start you will need to add 2 cups of water in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Next, add sugar and stir until it's dissolved. Next, add pearl tapioca. You will want to let this cook for approximately 20 minutes. Once it's completed you rinse it out and drain it. Place in the refrigerator to chill.
Cook 1 1/2 cups large black tapioca in boiling water, 6 minutes; cover and let sit off the heat, 30 minutes. Bring 1 cup each water and sugar to a boil; transfer to a bowl. Drain the tapioca and soak in the sugar syrup. To serve, put 1/4 cup tapioca in a glass. Shake 1 cup cold green tea, 3 tablespoons soaking syrup, 1/4 cup milk and 1 tablespoon sugar with ice; pour over the tapioca.
Jasmine Delight Bubble Tea
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup large tapioca pearls
  • 6 jasmine tea (or jasmine and green tea) bags
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

    Combine the sugar and 1 cup water in a small pot. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
    In a large pot over high heat, bring 8 cups water to a boil. Add the tapioca pearls, return the water to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat, cover and let the pearls sit another 15 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. Put into a container with the cooled simple syrup and refrigerate up to 2 days.
    Put 6 jasmine tea bags into a heat-proof container and pour over 4 cups boiling water. Let steep 20 minutes. Remove the bags and discard. Let the tea cool, and then refrigerate.
    When you are ready to serve, put 1/2 cup tapioca pearls into the bottom of a large glass. In a pitcher, combine the tea and sweetened condensed milk and stir until blended. Pour over the pearls and serve with an extra large straw
    I can not wait to try this!!!!
