Army Taro Milk Tea


-2 cups water

-1 tbsp loose-leaf jasmine green tea

-4 tbsp taro powder

-1/2 cup sugar + 1/2 cup water

-1/2 cup half and half

-3 tbsp honey



  1. Bring the water to a boil and brew the tea for 5 minutes.

  2. Make the simple syrup by heating 1/2 cup of sugar with 1/2 cup of water until the sugar is fully dissolved. Add the honey and transfer to a bowl or jar.

  3. Remove the tea leaves from the hot tea. Whisk in the taro powder until fully dissolved. The mixture should be a pale purple color. *Note: the taro powder comes sweetened so extra sugar is not necessary but you can adjust to taste.

  4. Add ice to a cocktail shaker and pour in the taro tea. Shake until combined. Scoop in some ice into 2 glasses and divide the tea into both glasses. Top with half and half and enjoy!

*Note: for vegan/lactose-free options: you can use alternative milk type of choice as a substitute.

You may also add in 1/2 cup of tapioca pearls to make it a boba tea.
