  • Yield: 4 Servings
  • Total Time: 40 Minutes


For the Boba
  • 1 cup large boba or large tapioca pearls
  • 1½ cups water
  • ¼ cup sugar
For the Tea
  • 4 cups strong-brewed black tea
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
How to Make It
    For the Boba
  1. In the Instant Pot, combine the boba, water, and sugar.
  2. Secure the lid on the pot. Close the pressure-release valve. Select manual and set the pot at high pressure for 2 minutes. At the end of the cooking time, allow the pot to sit undisturbed for 5 minutes, then release any remaining pressure.
  3. Allow the boba to cool in the pot, or pour them and the sugar syrup into a glass jar to cool at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes. (The boba will look quite large. They will shrink as they cool.) The boba can be kept in the refrigerator in the sugar syrup for a few hours, but they don’t store particularly well.
  4. For the Tea
  5. In a glass pitcher, stir together the tea, ice cubes, milk, and sugar.
  6. Using a slotted spoon, divide the boba among four glasses. Pour the tea over the boba and serve immediately.
