What Is Jasmine Milk Tea


Jasmine milk tea is a delightful and aromatic beverage that seamlessly blends the floral essence of jasmine tea with the creamy richness of milk. This popular Asian tea combines the soothing qualities of jasmine flowers with the comforting familiarity of milk, creating a harmonious and balanced flavor profile. 


You may be wondering… just what is Boba?

Boba, is made from tapioca starch, also known as cassava starch. They are made into small spheres that are slightly sweet, chewy in texture, and look like little black bubbles, which is where the term Bubble tea comes from.


Bubble tea is usually made by layering prepared boba with black or green tea, creamy milk, and a bit of sweetener.


Basically, if you can boil water, you can make this delicious Jasmine Milk Tea!


4 Ingredient Boba Tea

To make this recipe you only need 4 simple ingredients. Here it is.

4 Ingredient Jasmine Milk Tea:

  • Jasmine Tea. Jasmine Tea is chock full of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals and has often been used to help soothe an upset stomach. Making it perfect for those of us who too often suffer from acid reflux and food sensitivities. Jasmine tea is slightly floral in flavor, light and delicate, and not bitter. Nutritious and Delicious!


  • Boba a.k.a Tapioca Pearls. My favorite is this one from Amazon.


  • Sweetener. Coconut Sugar or Honey is always my go-to, as processed sugar can often cause GERD symptoms to amplify.


  • Dairy-Free Milk. Condensed Milk is usually the creamy ingredient in Boba Tea, and while I’m sure it makes it extra moreish, I was looking for a more gut-friendly option. I’ve found that almond or oat milk gives it a really beautiful creaminess and is perfect for those of us needing to avoid dairy.


Naturally Sweetened Jasmine Milk Tea


Jasmine Milk Tea Recipe Tips:

  • Listen to Your Body. Jasmine tea contains 15-60 mg of caffeine per cup which may relax the lower esophageal sphincter, triggering acid reflux or at least exacerbating it. While this recipe may be something delightful to try for yourself or your family, it may be best to limit your intake in an effort to care for your body and your healing well.


  • Drink Warm or Cold. Jasmine Milk Tea is delicious when served warm or chilled. Feel free to try both and see what your preferences are! In our house, I like it warm and my daughter loves hers over ice.


Boba Substitutes

If you are not a fan of Boba, don’t worry! There are lots of Boba alternatives: blueberries add the same look and drinking experience while being both fresh and flavorful. Dragon Fruit would be a great substitute, but if you are really looking to add a gut-healing punch try adding fresh aloe vera chunks! Of course, you always have the option of leaving them out entirely, but where’s the fun in that?


How to Store Prepared Boba

If you are adding Boba, it is best used warm. Alternatively, if you happen to have some leftovers, they can be stored at room temperature for 4 hours or placed in some honey and refrigerated for up to 72 hours.


Dairy Free Jasmine Milk Tea


How to Make Jasmine Milk Tea


First steep 2  jasmine tea bags in hot water. If you prefer a weaker tea or want to ensure less caffeine just use 1 tea bag. Also, filtered water if possible for the best bubble tea.


While your tea is steeping, prepare your boba according to the directions on the package. Don’t worry, nothing too hard here, it’s as easy as boiling your tapioca pearls in water.


Now that your tea is ready, it’s time to add your sweetener to your preferred level of sweetness. Just that added touch of decadence is all you need.


Easy and Delicious Jasmine Milk Tea


How to Prepare Jasmine Milk Tea


We are ready to layer. I like to use a clear glass so you can see the goodness. Studies show the prettier the food the better it tastes (I’m speaking in layman’s terms, of course, their definition was way too technical.)


Place your tapioca pearls in the bottom of the glass. Your boba is best used warm as it starts to harden after four hours. Next pour in your sweetened jasmine tea and then sloooooowwwwwly mix in creamy oat or almond milk and watch as it all comes together into something truly amazing.


Serve it up warm or add ice if you looking for that mid-afternoon wake-up. Jasmine Milk Tea is best when drunk with a wide boba straw so each sip ensures you get a tapioca ball and tea. Ahhhhhh, delicious.
