I LOVE Bubble Tea. How about YOU? My favorite is Taro Root Milk Tea (no sugar) and I also love yummy Mango Tea as well as Green Tea with Boba. What's your fave?
I usually make my own Bubble Tea at home as the tea shop I enjoy visiting is a pretty long trek away from me. To learn how to make bubble tea, I watched a few videos on youtube and then I felt comfortable purchasing tapioca pearls at my local asian market and on Amazon.
If you've arrived here from the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog, you're rolling right along! Let me get on with sharing my projects with you! I chose to use the adorable Seasonal Sweetheart stamp set and played around with the sweet girl in the set. Of course, I had to add her little friend, Bear. She's standing in line at her local tea shop waiting to order her favorite flavor of Boba Tea. Don't you just love the wallpaper in that shop? Hee hee.
For my second project, I altered a glass 1820 Sweet Cream Iced Coffee bottle (It's DEELISH!) so that I could reuse it with some homemade Boba.
To create the inky design, I applied watercolor onto a strip of white cardstock then splattered some ivory paint on it. After that, I stamped some hearts from the stamp set to create the "boba theme". I then added a sentiment and applied some cute coffee colored heart sprinkles and some "Soapy Bubbles" embellishment sequins.
Thanks so much for hopping over today! I hope you were inspired by my projects! Thanks to Trinity Stamps for the opportunity to collaborate with you! Please head on over to Erin's blog to check out her creations!
And here's my tasty Mango Bubble Tea:
You can create this recipe using any fruits, just switch out the mango for your favorite fresh fruit!
Steep 2 Black Tea bags (I use Hong Kong Black Tea) in about 1/2 cup water for about five minutes. After steeping, place tea in blender.
Add two scoops of powdered creamer (or Coconut milk or any Nut Milk) to the blender.
Add organic sugar or sweetener to your liking
Add 1/3 c fresh mango
Blend together until the cream creates a little foam on top.
In a glass (I use a Mason jar) add 1/4 cup tapioca pearls or coconut jellies. I make my own pearls and soak them in honey and keep in the fridge until I need them.
Pour Mango Tea into glass and serve with a big boba straw! YUM, YUM!
I'll have a few more recipes on my blog posts during the Coffee Lovers Hop so make sure to stop by!Trinity Stamps blog post too. They are sharing a fun free boba digi!!!
