Mango Green Tea Boba

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x


This refreshing mango fruit tea is sweet, tart, and delicious. It is made with green tea and has just enough caffeine to get you over the midday sleepiness. It is made without milk, but in the recipe notes, we have included a recipe for our famous mango milk tea.


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking tapioca pearls
  • 2 green tea bags (or 2 tsp loose-leaf green tea)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 mangos, cubed
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp simple syrup


  1. Cook the tapioca pearls according to the package instructions. Rinse them under cold water and set aside to cool.
  2. Steep the loose-leaf green tea in hot water for 5 minutes. Strain any excess tea leaves and leave the tea to cool in the fridge.
  3. Simmer the mangos, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a saucepan on low-medium heat for 10 minutes.
  4. After 10 minutes, smash the mango mixture until it becomes a puree. Continue stirring and smashing until it becomes smooth.
  5. Spoon half of the tapioca pearls into each serving cup.
  6. Divide the green tea between each cup, and add 2 tablespoons of the mango mixture (add more if you want it sweeter). Finally, serve with boba straw and enjoy!


If you can’t find ripe, fresh mango, you can use mango juice but the texture and overall flavor will be different.

Fresh or frozen mango is ideal. But to save time, you can look for mango puree in your local supermarket. Beware that it may already contain added sugar.

The beverage above is great if you’re craving a light and fruity drink. However, you can also consider adding milk to the mango mixture during the assembly process. This will give the drink a lovely creamy texture. Check out this mango milk tea for the complete recipe!
