Iced Bubble Tea

instant pot recipes, bubble tea
You need the sugar in this recipe not just for taste but also to keep the boba pearls from sticking to one another. If you prefer to use a sweetener other than sugar, you may not want to store this in the fridge for too long and allow the bubbles to get hard—which is just the excuse anyone needs for drinking a lot of this refreshing tea!

Instructions
  1. In the Instant Pot, combine the water, tea bags, boba pearls, and sugar.
  2. Secure the lid on the pot. Close the pressure-release valve. Select MANUAL/PRESSURE COOKER and set the pot at HIGH pressure for 5 minutes. At the end of the cooking time, allow the pot to sit undisturbed for 10 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure. (If the pot starts to spew liquid, close the valve and try again in a minute or two.)
  3. Remove the tea bags and stir in the evaporated milk.
  4. Fill four glasses with ice. Pour the tea over the ice, evenly distributing the boba pearls among the glasses. Serve.

    This was pretty good! I would suggest after its done to let it cool for an hour before serving, even with the milk it was really hot over ice and did not cool well. Regardless it’s still 5 stars!

    I am not sure if this was meant to be a joke recipe but I followed the recipe to the T but the Bobas were left halfway cooked. The rest were stuck at the bottom of my instapot. It was a very messy ending. I don’t recommend this recipe at all! My friend told me Bobas are too be cooked with plenty of water so they can float and not crowd/stuck together.

    I didn’t believe it could be done so I tried it. Oh my so yummy and easy!! This is dangerous!! I cut the recipe in half, used sweetened condensed milk instead and cooled it a lil longer. So good! Satisfied my craving!

    Very delicious! No trouble with the Black Pearl Tapioca sticking to the bottom or the instant pot or to each other. They were done perfectly! I got my black pearl at the Asian market
