Shelf Life

Coconut milk tea is best when made & served fresh! Additionally, if you are adding boba pearls, you must serve them immediately; otherwise, they will turn hard. However, to store it, refrigerate the coconut milk tea in an airtight container for up to 1 or 2 days. Add the boba pearls just before serving.
