TENZO Matcha King Kong Bubble Tea
For the brown sugar boba:
2 cups dark brown sugar
2 cups water
1 cup instant boba pearls
For the matcha latte:
2 tsp TENZO matcha
1/4 cup hot water
2 cups milk of choice
Ice, for serving
In a medium pot, combine dark brown sugar and water and bring to a boil. Stir in instant boba and simmer on high for 2-3 minutes uncovered until pearls start to float (or according to package directions). Cover and simmer for another 2-3 minutes or until pearls reach the desired level of chewiness. Using a slotted spoon, transfer cooked boba pearls to a separate bowl. Continue to simmer brown sugar syrup on high for another 15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool and thicken slightly before adding boba pearls back into syrup.
In a heat-proof measuring cup, whisk TENZO matcha powder and hot water together until smooth and allow to cool slightly.
To serve, divide brown sugar boba pearls between two glasses (there will be leftover syrup) and fill each glass to the top with ice. Pour milk over ice, followed by matcha. Top with additional boba and syrup if desired and stir well to sweeten evenly before enjoying.
Slow down there friend. Are you sure you have enough matcha to bring these two monsters to life? Why don't you play it safe, leave the surprises for the big screen, and stock up on your match now, before you run out.
