I've been using instant packet mixes to make my milk teas and I have become dissatisfied with it when I compare it to Tapioca Express's or Quickly's.
Since home-made stuff seems to prevail over instant store-bought stuff I wanted to know if anyone in createblog knew of any good milk tea recipes :)
I'm particularly interested in Thai Milk Tea recipes, my favorite :)
And also, boba for that matter, like what sweetening you use on your tapioca pearls?

We constantly have HK style milk tea at our house. There's not really much to it, just a looooot of PG Tips tea bags (we do maybe 3 cups and use like 6 tea bags?) and let it steep for quite a bit so it's super strong, then just white sugar and Carnation evaporated milk to taste.
I think that's the only real milk tea there is lol. Even when I have bbt I tend to shy away from bubble milk tea because it always tastes watered down and shizz. I guess you could make it like that with the same "ingredients", just use less tea bags and more milk.

The asian market here has limited supplies, I'll try checking tomorrow if they have that king of tea...but if they don't, do you know of any alternatives?

Anyone want to help with the tapioca pearls lol?
I've been using mixtures or white sugar, brown sugar, and some honey...
Its doesn't taste quite right to me.
What else could I use to flavor my tapioca pearls? I like the TapX's pearls the BEST! So...something similar to that flavor would be AWESOME! Thanks!
