What Does Mint Chocolate Whip Bubble Tea Taste Like?
Mint chocolate whip bubble tea tastes like a chocolate-mint indulgence. The mint and the chocolate are the stars of this bubble tea, creating a drink that tastes similar to a mint chocolate chip dessert.
If you prefer, you can substitute your favorite candy bar for the hazelnut spread. You can also use both chocolate syrup and hazelnut spread for a richer mint chocolate whip boba.
Does Mint Chocolate Whip Boba Tea Have Caffeine?
Mint chocolate whip boba tea usually has caffeine. If you use jasmine tea as suggested, your serving of boba tea will have between 5 and 20 mg of caffeine. If you prefer caffeine-free boba, use an herbal mint tea or hot chocolate.
If you don’t have jasmine tea on hand, black tea is an easy substitute, but it will create a slightly more bitter tea. However, with the addition of chocolate and hazelnut, that shouldn’t be an issue. Consider using matcha or chai as a base to explore new flavor combinations.
You could also use espresso or brewed iced coffee for a different boba creation. Using coffee in your boba would raise the caffeine level to between 60 and 80 mg, depending on the type of coffee and brewing process.
Can You Use Spearmint or Peppermint Leaves Instead of Mint?
Mint is a blend of peppermint and spearmint. Peppermint has the most potent menthol flavor, while spearmint is light and sweet.
If you prefer a mellow mint flavor, you can substitute spearmint for the mint leaves in this recipe. Use the same number of leaves that the recipe calls for. If you discover the spearmint flavor is too light, add another leaf or two. If you use peppermint leaves, start with only two.
You can use spearmint, mint, or peppermint extract if you prefer. You can usually find these extracts in the grocery store. Start by using the same number of drops the recipe calls for, though you may want to add one to two more drops after a taste test.
Is Mint Chocolate Whip Better Hot or Cold?
The answer depends on your preferences. Mint chocolate boba is usually served cold, so the toppings and ingredients don’t melt.
However, if you prefer warm drinks, serve your mint chocolate boba without ice. Instead of shaking the drink with ice in step number six, you may want to bring it to a boil again. On a chilly afternoon, a warm mint chocolate whip boba is a delicious indulgence—especially if you make it with hot chocolate!
