What Influence the Most for a Cup of Good Taste Jasmine Boba Tea?

A cup of good-tasting jasmine boba tea is the result of many factors. It all begins with the quality of the jasmine tea itself, and then it is layered with the right amount of syrup, pearls, and aroma. These three elements are what make a great cup of boba tea!

1. Quality of tea: quality is everything.
If you want to make an exquisite cup of green tea, you have to use high-quality leaves from different regions. Most teas come from China, Taiwan. The higher grade they are, the more expensive they will be as well.

If it comes from China or Japan, expect your green tea bag to cost upwards of $20 or even more. However, if it’s grown in Taiwan then it will only cost around $10-$15 per pound depending on how many times of jasmine scenting they are. Jasmine tea is known for its charming jasmine blossom aroma and flavor, so it’s important to use high-quality jasmine tea to make sure you get the best taste and high jasmine blossom aroma possible.

2. The sweetness & quality of syrup
Syrup is also another soul of good cup of jasmine boba tea. You need to find the right syrup to match the jasmine boba tea, then it improves the overall taste, like icing on the cake. But if not the right syrup, it will decrease the taste dramatically.
We have done quite a lot of tests; everything is the same (including tea, brewing ways, making process, etc ), except syrup. Then the final cups of jasmine boba tea have quite a huge taste & flavors.

3. Quality tapioca pearls
Some people say that tapioca balls freshly made on site in the bubble shops are better than those made from assembly-line massive-production factories, because they are fresher with visible materials.  This is the psychological thoughts of most ordinary consumers.

However, most of the times, this is not correct. The most important factors influence the tapioca pearls quality are: quality of tapioca, production machines, and some food additives.  Good quality tapioca pearls should have below factors: fresh, chewy, good floral & tasty. 

Currently there are several different sizes of tapioca pearls, like 0.5cm, 0.8cm, 1cm & 1.2cm diameter big. But the most frequently-used size is 0.8cm size.
