Making Bubble Tea at Home

During these unfortunate times that we find ourselves in, it's probably the case that your favourite bubble tea shop has had to close. Although some stores have been operating a delivery service, like us here at Manhua Cha, some people may be left wondering where they're going to get their next boba tea fix from.

Luckily, there are plenty of ways for you to make your favourite teas at home! All you'll need is a boba tea kit. The process of making homemade bubble tea isn't as complicated as some people may think, so you can have your favourite beverage whenever you'd like.

Here at Manhua Cha, we make and deliver bubble tea kits perfect for that stay-at-home treat! You can choose your favourite flavours and toppings to make your very own delicious milk or ice tea. You can even choose between jelly, juice balls or tapioca pearls! Want to know how you can make your own bubble tea at home? Read our article below!

What You'll Need

Making boba tea at home doesn't have to be complicated. To craft the perfect bubble tea recipe, all you need to do is order one of our personalised bubble tea kits, make sure that you have some water and sugar handy, and you're good to go.

Our boba tea kits range in the number of drinks you can make and come in hot and cold variants. For instance, our winter bubble tea drinks are perfect for drinking in front of the fire this Christmas, and you can purchase kits which make four or twelve separate drinks. Whether you're looking for a milk tea to warm you up this winter or just an iced tea to help you get through the day, we've got you covered!

Here at Manhua Cha, we sell delicious bubble tea both in-store in Newcastle and online. Our boba tea kits are tailored to your flavour preferences, ensuring that you get the tastiest drink possible!


Whilst our boba tea kits provide most of the ingredients for you, you will still need to supply some ingredients yourself. These include water, ice cubes, milk and sugar! Our recipes differ depending on whether you have hot or cold tea, as warm milk tea requires boiling hot water, whereas fruit tea water needs to just be warm.

All drinks take around 250ml of water to make, and your kit will be tailored specifically to your preferences! If you're cooking tapioca pearls from scratch, make sure that you add them to the water as it's boiling to prepare them for your tea. Add them to your cup before you add the tea!

Why We Love It

Making bubble tea at home not only saves you money, but also allows you to enjoy your favourite tea whilst the stores remain closed, and keeps a small business up and running. Making your favourite beverage with your boba tea kit gives you a look into how your favourite drink is made in-store, and you can appreciate the deliciousness in your own home!

Our kits are packed with all the core ingredients you will need to make the perfect drink. We have a range of topping and tea flavours suitable for any bubble tea fan, and you can even mix up your order! No matter how you like your tea, we've got the perfect kit just waiting for you.
