🍵 Steeping Pro Tip

Avoid Oversteeping the tea to prevent a bitter taste caused by excessive tannins. The recommended times are 3 minutes for Green and Jasmine Tea, 4 minutes for Oolong Tea, and 5 minutes for Black Tea.

Step 3 In a tall glass, combine the strawberry puree with ice and pour in strongly brewed tea, followed by your choice of milk.

🧋 Boba Note

If adding Boba, follow the boiling instructions on the packaging and add them to the Bottom of the Glass before pouring in the brewed tea.

🌿 Garnishing Pro Tip

For an extra touch of presentation, garnish with Fresh Mint Leaves.

Recipe Variations

You can easily switch up the flavors by using the same strawberry puree and swapping out the tea for carbonated water and cream to create a delightful Strawberry Cream Soda variation of the drink. This variation offers a fizzy and refreshing twist, perfect for those craving a different take on this drink.

  1. can you explain the calorie count. coconut milk alone brings ~400 kCal. Is the nutritional info without the milk? Love the recipes–thank you

    • LowCarbingAsian

      Hi Sam – glad you are enjoying our recipes! I think the coconut milk you are looking at is the sweetened version? We use the unsweetened version that has around 30cal for 3/4 Cup. Hope that helps.
