How to prepare Brown Sugar Boba Milk Drink

Brown Sugar Boba Milk Tea Drink is the latest craze in the world of milk tea. But the name is a bit of a misnomer because it doesn’t have any tea in its ingredients. Instead, it contains tapioca pearls infused with special brown sugar, fresh milk, and fresh cream.

This bubble milk tea drink has a distinct look. You can see the brown sugar syrup descending on the milk and tapioca pearls looking like brown molten lava. Upon seeing these photos online, we decide to try to recreate our version at home.
