  1. Tapioca pearls
  2. Popping bubbles
  3. Custard pudding
  4. Grass jelly
  5. Basil seeds or chia seeds
  6. Milk foam

If you enjoy bubble tea, it should come as no surprise that tapioca pearls are one of, if not the most popular bubble tea topping.
Tapioca pearls are a gently sweet, chewy component to your drink manufactured from tapioca starch, a cassava plant product from South America. If you’re trying milk tea for the first time and want a safe bet, we recommend going traditional and adding tapioca pearls to your drink.

Another popular topping is popping bubbles, which do exactly what their name implies — pop! Popping bubbles are little balls filled with fruit juice that explode when bitten into and are made from seaweed extract. They come in a variety of flavors including apple, lychee, strawberry, mango, passion fruit, orange, and many more.

Although it may appear to be an unusual addition to your beverage, custard pudding has become one of the most popular bubble tea toppings. It’s created with egg yolks, cream, and sugar and goes well with creamier, more decadent milk teas. Some bubble tea restaurants may also sell flavored puddings like taro or mango pudding.

Jelly is an excellent alternative for adding chewiness to your drink. There are many various varieties of jelly to pick from, like coconut jelly and rainbow jelly, but one of the most popular is grass jelly.
Grass jelly is prepared from the plant Chinese persona, and while its flavor isn’t especially unique or strong, it is typically steeped in brown sugar creating a somewhat sweet, herbaceous flavor with a hint of mint. This jelly has a thicker consistency than pudding and comes sliced into cubes.

Basil and chia seeds pair well with fruit-flavored bubble teas. Both types of seeds are high in nutrients and have a similar appearance. However, basil seeds are always black, but chia seeds might be white, brown, grey, or black. Soaking these seeds in liquid results in a slimy transparent coating. The seeds, on the other hand, remain firm in the center, giving texture to your drink.

Last but not least, there’s the foam topping. The most common foam topper is milk foam, which is just a fluffy foam that you can mix into your drink to provide a mild milk flavor. The saltiness of the milk foam contrasts nicely with the sweetness of the milk tea, and the airiness of the topping lends another layer of texture to the drink.

If you opt to add a foam topping to your drink, we recommend sipping it without a straw first. This way, you get a taste of the drink as well as the foam!
