Having tried this from Boba Guy’s store, I couldn’t match their flavors even after using Strauss milk (which I believe is regional, just FYI). I couldn’t achieve the same sweetness and fullness the store’s iced tea provided. Obviously the boba tapioca pearls, which are made in brown sugar, help sweeten the tea, but I don’t like making boba. Maybe that was my mistake. Overall I thought this tea was a bit weak in flavor, but I also like strong black teas.
