Priced at just $8, it’s a pretty good deal when you consider the fact you get five delicious servings. As for the flavours on offer, you can choose from brown sugar, caramel, taro, mango, strawberry, matcha, peach, and the OG: milky. In an interview with Pedestrian, Boyle said she had tried the taro flavour and was rather amazed.
“The taro was delicious and the peach was good too,” said Boyle, who discovered the range in Woolworths in Lightsview, Adelaide. “But I’d definitely recommend using milk instead of water for the milky teas and instead of microwaving the pearls soak them in hot water. [it] tastes so much better that way.”
While it’s safe to say the kits won’t quite produce the magic that is created with the bubble tea from the actual shop, it’s still worth it for those who find themselves hungering for a bubble tea late in the evenings and can’t get out to a store to get one. It seems our love for bubble tea knows no end, as there’s even a Bubble Tea Club that delivers DIY-at-home boba packs, shipping right across Australia. And if you are yet to experience the joys of bubble tea, perhaps the home kit is exactly what you need to begin your journey.
