This article will cover in good detail on how to make an easy and quick mango fruit tea with, or without boba at home or in a shop. It will also cover the best tea to use for it, along with the best boba flavors to combine it with. Mango fruit tea is one of the most popular fruit tea flavors.
Ingredients for a 24 ounce mango fruit tea:
- 3 tablespoons of mango syrup
- The Possmei mango syrup is what some of the tea shops use that make really good mango fruit tea. I recommend using this syrup, as others have used this to make copycat mango fruit teas that taste just like the boba tea shops at home.
- 1 tablespoon of jasmine green loose tea leaves
- Make sure that the jasmine green tea loose leaves are authentic. They usually cost a little bit more than the ones that aren’t. They will have a very good scent and the flowers will make the tea smell this way after it is made.
- Other loose tea leaf flavors can be used to make the mango fruit tea, but the green tea is one of the best. Another good choice would be black tea leaves to make a mango black tea. Black tea works really well as a base for many fruit teas.
- 3 1/2 cups of water.
- You will need plenty of water to steep the tea leaves in as you will lose some of the water as the tea leaves are steeping in it. It will be absorbed by some of the tea leaves.
- 1/3 cup of popping boba (mango, blueberry, chocolate, lychee, passion fruit, peach, or yogurt popping boba)
- The popping boba isn’t required for making the mango fruit tea unless you are making a fruit bubble tea drink. Any of the flavors listed as popping boba flavors will go well with the mango fruit tea.
Equipment for making a mango fruit tea:
- Tea pot with an infuser.
- A tea pot with a built-in infuser allows the loose tea leaves to steep in the hot water without it ending up in the actual tea.
- If an infuser isn’t used, then the tea leaves would have to be separated by using a mesh strainer.
- A cup shaker.
- A cup shaker is used to place drink ingredients into along with ice, and thoroughly mix them all together by closing it with the lid and shaking the cup. They are very useful if you make fruit tea and bubble tea on a regular basis. They can be used to make many drinks really fast once you know the ingredients.
- Make the jasmine green tea.
- Place 1 tablespoon of jasmine green tea leaves in 30 ounces of hot water.
- The temperature of the water should be around 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Let the tea leaves steep for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Let the jasmine green tea leaves stay in the hot water for 2 to 3 minutes. The longer they stay in the water, the stronger the tea will be.
- Put 3 tablespoons of mango syrup into the cup shaker.
- 3 tablespoons of the syrup should be enough to turn this drink into a mango fruit tea if you are using the Possmei mango syrup. You might need to add more or less if you are using another brand of syrup.
- Start out with a lesser amount first if using another brand of mango syrup, then add in more as needed. This way you don’t waste your tea, and you can still make a good mango fruit tea to your liking.
- Put ice in the cup shaker. Fill it up 3/4 of the way.
- The ice will melt and cool down the jasmine green tea at the same time. The more ice that is placed in the cup, the easier it will be.
- Pour the jasmine green tea into the cup shaker.
- Pour the jasmine green tea into the cup with ice. The ice will melt and merge with the tea.
- Shake it or stir it well.
- If you are using a cup shaker, then shake the cup for about a minute to fully mix the mango syrup with the tea.
- If you are using a regular cup, then, stir it with a spoon until it is fully mixed.
- Add in the 1/3 cup of popping pearls.
- The blueberry popping boba really works great with the mango fruit tea, but you can add in mango popping boba for more mango flavor if you really like mango.
- Peach also makes a great combination with mango.
This is it for making a mango fruit tea with or without boba. It is really easy to do. Some mango fruit teas are also made with fructose as a sweetener. Around half of the amount of fructose would be used for the amount of mango syrup used.
