Brown sugar milk tea is a classic favorite among bubble tea lovers. Its smoky caramel notes and creamy taste make it an absolute heartthrob for sweet tooths!

Luckily for you, you can easily create Bubblish’s Brown Sugar Milk Tea right in your kitchen so you can enjoy it without having to leave your home. Just order a Brown Sugar Milk Tea DIY Kit from our online store and follow our recipe!


The brown sugar syrup used by Bubblish differs from what other bubble tea shops use. Our brown sugar contains molasses made from Taiwan’s sugarcanes!


  • Water (boiled 100°C)
  • Brown Sugar Syrup
  • Assam Black Tea (highly recommended)
  • 250ml Milk (you can use vegan milk)
  • Ice cubes 
  • Cooked Black boba (see video recipe)


  • Brew 1 teaspoon of Assam Black Tea in 100°C hot water for about 3-5 minutes.
  • Cover the bottom of your chosen cup with black boba. Put as much as you like! 
  • Add 20ml  of brown sugar syrup into the cup
  • Line the inner lip of the cup with 10ml brown sugar syrup to create a dripping pattern and to add more sweetness.
  • Next, fill the cup with ice.
  • Then, pour the Assam Black Tea into the cup- recommended 50ml. 
  • Fill the rest of the cup with milk and ta-dah! It is ready to drink! 


Use a frothier to increase the creaminess of the drink.
