What Is Jasmine Milk Tea?
Jasmine green milk tea, created centuries ago during the Chinese Ming Dynasty, is a mixture of green tea with flowers like chrysanthemum, orchid, and jasmine. The blossom from these flowers is what makes jasmine milk tea one of the most popular scented teas.
Jasmine milk tea is not one of the typical milk teas. Though I believe that it deserves more popularity. This could be possible for the reason that it lacks color like the other teas.
However, there is no absence of flavor in these jasmine milk teas. Jasmine tea is often compared to oolong tea; however, I believe that jasmine milk tea is more delicate and sweeter.
Jasmine milk tea, made from green tea, usually can also be made using black and white teas. Adding jasmine to tea creates a sweet, fragrant drink with a delicate taste.

How To Make Jasmine Milk Tea
The whole thing starts with carefully plucking leaves from the Jasmine vine. Adding freshly plucked jasmine leaves to your tea will give it the fragrant sweetness you want.
Usually, these leaves are fused with green tea to make delicious jasmine green tea! You can prepare jasmine milk tea using tea bags, rolled petals, or loose-leaf.
1. Using Loose Leaf Tea:
My preferred and recommended form is to use loose-leaf tea. To get the best flavor for your tea all you need is a teapot and a strainer!
2. Using Tea Bags:
Teabags are mostly made up of broken leaves and stems, so they would be my last choice for preparing tea unless you can get your hands on tea sachets that have more room for tea leaves.
3. Using Jasmine Pearl Tea:
The most expensive form of jasmine tea is to purchase these hand-rolled small pearls made up of scented green tea leaves.
Recipe of Jasmine Milk Tea

3 Easy To Find Ingredients:
- Loose-leaf jasmine tea – 1 tablespoon per serving
- Creamer or milk – 1/4 cup
- Sweetener – 1 tablespoon (honey or sugar)
The recipe for Jasmine milk tea is simple to carry out. We will use milk and honey for this recipe to keep things simple.
Instructions To Prepare Jasmine Milk Tea:
Fill up your favorite teapot with water. Heat the pot till the water starts to boil. If you’re in an early morning rush, you may want to try an electric teakettle! Electric kettles are just as good, and they get things done much quicker.
Once the water starts boiling, reduce the flame. Keep the flame at a medium-high. Add the jasmine leaves next. Allow your tea to steep for about 5 minutes.
For lighter teas, steep for a shorter time. This prevents the tea leaves from burning. Burnt tea leaves are very undesirable as they produce an acidic or bitter taste.
Now use your preferred strainer to filter out the tea leaves from the teapot. Pour the remaining clear and fragrant jasmine tea into your cups.
Now comes the part you were waiting for this whole time. With the beverage in your cups, start by adding your sweetener. Next, slowly pour in the milk and stir thoroughly.

How To Make Honey Boba
Bubble tea or pearl milk tea, commonly known as boba tea, originated in Taiwan. It is a trendy drink with two main varieties: A Fruit Infused beverage or a tea Based beverage with milk and honey.
Regardless of the type you prefer, they will undoubtedly contain chewy tapioca pearls or boba.
A wider straw is usually used to drink bubble tea so that you can enjoy chewing a few tapioca pearls with every sip.
The only problem with buying tapioca seeds or boba is that they contain too much sugar and are made using powdered formula. This is why I’m sharing the recipe for making your tapioca pearls at home.
The delicious chewy tapioca pearls don’t have a flavor of their own, so they need to be sweetened.
- For one cup of tea, add about a quarter cup of tapioca pearls to a pot of boiling water and cover.
- Cook for about 2-3 minutes, remove them from the pot of boiling water and dunk them in cold water. The tapioca pearls should be floating when they’re done!
- Soak them in a mixture of honey and water for 10-20 minutes. The honey syrup will be absorbed by the tapioca pearls making them sweet and delicious!
Making your tapioca pearls can be fun once you’ve had some practice making them!
One important thing to remember is that boba balls do not store well, so only make enough which you have to use right away.
