Sunright Tea, one of SoCal’s hottest bubble tea shops, is now allowing patrons to bring the experience home with them. Their new do-it-yourself boba milk tea kits, requiring nothing more than ‘just add water,’ provide all the ingredients for a group to embark on a customized boba experience anywhere, anytime.
Each brightly-colored kit includes six servings worth of milk tea powder, brown sugar, and chewy boba tapioca pearls, all individually packaged in single-sized portions, plus six wide boba straws. Preparation is simple: simply stir Sunright’s milk tea powder in a half a cup of warm water, then stir in brown sugar to taste. To customize further, based on whether you want a hot or cold boba drink, add a three-quarter cup of warm water or one cup of cold water over ice.
To add the boba, cut off one corner of each instant boba pack to ensure proper air flow, then microwave for 25 to 30 seconds. From there, add in and indulge.
Sunright Tea Studio prides themselves in sourcing quality ingredients and bringing great care each drink they serve. Their leaves are cultivated in mountaintop farms, where the plants soak in the essence of the sun and absorb the nourishment of the misty, evening rain. Farmers pick fresh leaves and carefully process them through rolling, roasting, and fermentation. The tea is then blended with other varietals based on origin, weather, and season, resulting in balanced and consistent flavor.
And while their take-home milk tea boba kits should satisfy those seeking some off-premise indulgence, they’re also known for their stores’ fun ambiance that represents the free style of California. An extensive beverage menu features creations that integrate ceylon black tea, jasmine green tea, roasted oolong, and Four Seasons, a special oolong varietal. Each recipe is crafted for carefully-defined attributes of flavor and fragrance.
Sunright Tea Studio has locations all throughout Southern California, and recently opened their first Northern California location in Sunnyvale. Guests can order from each location directly or visit Sunright Tea Studio online at SNRTea.com
