In a medium-sized pot over medium-high heat, add four cups of water and bring to a boil.
Wrap your tea leaves in cheesecloth or put them in a reusable tea infuser (if you don’t have either, you can put the tea leaves straight in the pot, but you will have to strain them later on). Place the tea in the boiling water and continue to boil for three minutes.
Remove the pot from the heat and steep for 15 minutes, uncovered.
Remove the tea leaves from the pot and reheat the tea for another one to two minutes or until it’s hot to the touch.
Pour about four ounces of tea in each teacup or mug.
Add the pre-made boba in each cup if desired.
In each cup, add the milk and sugar and stir until dissolved. Enjoy!
Serve with teaspoons if you are adding boba because it’s safer to use with hot liquids than straws. The longer the boba stays in warmer liquids, the chewier the texture will get, so I would recommend eating it first.
