Making Bubble Tea Quickly with an Instant Pot

If you’ve been curious about making bubble tea at home, an Instant Pot is the perfect tool for quickly achieving the right consistency and flavor. All you need are a few ingredients, and you’ll be ready to sip in no time!


  • 1 cup tapioca pearls
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup sugar


  • Add the tapioca pearls, water, and sugar to the Instant Pot. Give it a quick stir.
  • Secure the lid and make sure the steam valve is closed.
  • Set the Instant Pot to Manual (high pressure) for 5 minutes.
  • Once the 5 minutes have passed, let the Instant Pot naturally release the steam for 10 minutes.
  • After the 10 minutes, you can quick-release the steam by carefully opening the steam valve.
  • The tapioca pearls should be fully cooked at this point. Give the pot a quick stir to make sure all the pearls are evenly cooked.
  • Let the pearls cool for 10-15 minutes, then transfer them to a glass bowl or mason jar.
  • Serve with your favorite tea, milk, and/or sugar.
  • Enjoy your homemade bubble tea!
