This pink teddy bubble tea is the perfect afternoon treat. You can use fresh or frozen raspberries, jasmine tea, green tea, or herbal tea. You will need a blender and a cocktail shaker (or a quart mason jar with a lid).Print
What Does Pink Teddy Boba Milk Tea Taste Like?
Pink teddy boba milk tea tastes sweet and slightly tart from the raspberries. This bubble tea is similar to strawberry milk tea but with more acidity. The subtle flavor of jasmine tea lets the raspberry flavor shine through. If you use frozen raspberries, your bubble tea will have the texture of a smoothie. The tapioca pearls add sweetness and a chewy texture.
How Much Caffeine Is in Pink Teddy Bubble Tea?
Jasmine tea has between 15 and 60 mg of caffeine per cup. Since each pink teddy bubble tea has 1/2 cup of jasmine tea, the finished boba drink will have between 7 and 30 mg of caffeine.
Using a different tea will change the amount of caffeine—green tea has around 29 mg per cup, while matcha has approximately 70 mg per cup.
Does Pink Teddy Pearl Milk Tea Have Any Health Benefits?
The raspberries in pearl milk tea have several health benefits. Raspberries are high in potassium and vitamin C. They have more fiber than many other fruits, which helps you feel full longer. The manganese found in raspberries helps regulate blood sugar and keeps bones healthy.
Raspberries are excellent for health, but combining them with sugar can overshadow these benefits. You should enjoy bubble tea in moderation.
Do the Cookies Change the Texture of Pink Teddy Tea?
The shortbread cookies help create a thicker texture while adding sweetness. Since you blend the cookies with raspberries, milk, and tea, the finished mixture resembles a thin milkshake. Without the cookies, the base mixture is watery.
You can change the cookie flavor if you want something different—cinnamon, ginger, and lemon flavors complement raspberry.
Which Toppings Are Best With Pink Teddy Tea?
While shortbread cookies are the classic garnish for pink teddy boba bubble tea, you can’t go wrong with any of these options as a substitute or an addition:
- Cream cheese foam
- Fresh fruit—raspberries, blackberries, or pears
- Ice cream
- Popping boba—passionfruit, blueberry, or mango go well with raspberry
- Egg Pudding
- Raspberry mousse
- Tapioca pearls—soaked in raspberry simple syrup
- Taro boba
- White chocolate chips
