Coconut, Pineapple and Ginger Bubble Tea, this vegan, delicious chilled bubble tea flavoured with coconut, pineapple and ginger. 

It's a touch of Sunshine in the cup surely brings the tropical weather to your taste buds. Ice cold and sweet, with a little bit of zing and refreshing beverage with chewy boba tapioca pearls can become addictive because you will find happiness in a glass!

Bubble Tea, is really sweeping the nation ! Cold and fruity tea floating with slimy tapioca pearls, which is available in array of bright colours and flavours that looks so attractive , I have noticed people stand in a queue for almost half an hour for it, Crazy right ? I have been there :) When I tried first time almost four years ago, felt little weird as so many flavours and texture hitting my taste buds but surprisingly I wanted to have another glass, it was refreshing , delicious and yummy!

Bubble or Boba tea is made with refreshing flavoured fruit teas and milk teas or fruit smoothies served mostly ice cold with tapioca pearls ( aka Boba balls or Pearls ) that is sucked up through special fat straw. Bubble tea, can be consumed as a snack as well as drink too. Bubble tea can be enjoyed with unique flavours and endless combinations and surely it can be prepared at home easily with little time and right ingredients and of course it will be inexpensive. In no time turn your kitchen and living room into bubble tea shop !! 

Since, I tried Bubble tea first time while I was enjoying glorious sunshine at the beach of Brighton, on every sip there were many flavours and combinations dancing in my head, after that I have prepared Bubble tea quite a few times, but sadly none of them made it to my blog, one of them was Peach,Passion fruit and Honey Bubble Tea:)

Pictures taken in 2012 :)

The one combination always I wanted to try, it was Coconut, Pineapple and Ginger ! World's most popular combination Pineapple and Coconut, but I wanted it with Ginger, I wanted a Desi touch in it, after all I am very fond of my Adrak Wali Chai ( Ginger Tea ) !

If you can not get hold of Boba Pearls, use large Tapioca Pearls ( Sabudana ).

If you want to give this tea to very young children, but without caffeine, omit black tea.

There are two colours that boba pearls are available in the store, black and white with some coloured ones ( Which I have used )

Bubble tea originally made with black tea, however, green tea, Thai tea, herbal tea or even coffee can be used to make bubble tea.
