I've had Bubble Tea at the mall and I was very happy to see this cute little mini recipe book for such a good price. Now I know that the price was low because no one edited (or even read twice) before publishing this mess.
More than half of the recipes have ingredients that are not even mentioned in the recipe or don't make any sense. For example: they list 1 cup of fresh blueberries for a Blueberry Bubble Tea recipe, but then the directions don't even mention the blueberries at all. Do I blend them in? Do I just eat them on the side? Who knows. Another recipe was called Lemon Bubble Iced Tea but there were no lemons in the recipe, but limes instead. Some recipes are redundant, telling you to blend the ingredients with ice, pour over the bubbles, and then after it tells you to enjoy the drink, the last sentence is "add the ice". Many of the plain recipes in the beginning just say "add milk and sweetener to your liking". Very nice of them to think of how I like my tea, but I DON'T KNOW HOW TO MAKE BUBBLE TEA! Do I use a cup of milk? A tablespoon? It would have been nice to have some guidelines. The water needed is sometimes listed in cups, sometimes in "glasses", and I'm not quite sure about some of the tea ingredients either.
Ok, enough ranting about the horrible editing. There are some unique recipes like the Cookies and Cream bubble tea and Chocolate covered strawberrry bubbble tea that sound awesome! Luckily I can pretty much figure out what I THINK they meant, but c'mon, a quick check before you publish something couldn't be that hard. I'll still use this little recipe book for ideas, but I think the most useful part of the book will be the last few reference pages of websites that they took the recipes from.
