This version, akin to other popular varieties like Bubble Tea and Taro Milk Tea previously featured on my blog, offers a perfect balance of sweetness and refreshment.
Ideal for cooling down during summer or providing comfort in winter, it stands out with its authentic strawberry taste, complemented by subtle green tea notes and the sweetness of brown sugar boba, making it a luxurious choice among its counterparts.

Chef's Notes and Tips
- Boba Preparation: Follow the package instructions carefully when cooking Boba to ensure the best texture and taste. While I used instant Boba, feel free to experiment with different varieties to suit your preference.
- Tea Selection: Green tea is my choice for this recipe, but black tea is a great alternative, offering similar flavor profiles.
- Sweetness Adjustment: Considering the inherent sweetness of the Boba and strawberry milk, I've added just a teaspoon of brown sugar. Adjust the sweetener to your taste, or you can even skip it altogether.
- Iced Version: This versatile drink can be enjoyed at room temperature or chilled with plenty of ice cubes for extra refreshment.

Storage and Serving Suggestions
- Advance Preparation: Brew the green tea and prepare the strawberry milk in advance. You can store both in the refrigerator for up to a day, ensuring they're ready whenever you need them.
- Boba Cooking: It's best to cook the Boba just before serving the tea. Instant Boba can become rubbery and overly sticky if left unused for extended periods.
- Serving Options: This sweet and invigorating beverage is perfect for hot summer days or enjoyed slightly warm during the chilly winter season. It also makes for a delightful treat when you're in the mood for something sweet or a dessert-like drink.
