Water-based Bubble Tea Ingredient Quantities

We provide estimates of the quantities you'll need for each ingredient, based on the number of drinks and cup size. These are only estimates intended to give you a place to start. There's many factors that influence the perfect quantities, e.g. taste preference and strength of different flavours. We also provide measurements and dilution ratios at the bottom of the page.
