What does chocolate milk iced tea taste like?

Chocolate milk iced tea is an extremely refreshing ice-cold drink with a rich chocolate taste. If hot chocolate milk tea helps to warm up the body, the iced one is perfect to clear heat and cool down, especially on hot days. Adding ice cubes makes this milk tea become an ideal summer beverage. 

Cool and refreshing is the typical taste of chocolate milk iced tea. Its taste is somewhat similar to chocolate iced tea and chocolate latte, but more complex and soft due to a thinner texture. It becomes more popular when mixed with tapioca pearls (or boba pearls) which give a rich and chewy taste at the bottom of the cup. Chocolate milk iced tea is sweet but not overly, which is friendly for kids. That’s why it is widely consumed by all ages.

How to make chocolate milk iced tea?

Recipe 1: Chocolate milk iced tea with tea leaves

Tea is an optional ingredient in chocolate milk tea. If green tea tastes grassy or fresh, black tea is better for chocolate milk iced tea because it has a dark color and a malty and strong flavor. For tea lovers, adding black tea will make the drink more robust and flavorful. Black tea also boosts the caffeine content of milk tea. 


  • ½ cup tapioca pearls
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons hot chocolate powder
  • 1 teaspoon black tea
  • 1 cup milk
  • Some ice cubes


  • Boil tapioca pearls in a saucepan with some cups of water and simmer for about 5-6 minutes. Then turn off the heat, strain the pearls, and stir with sugar in a small bowl.
  • Combine hot chocolate powder and boiling water, then whisk constantly until the powder dissolves.
  • Put black tea into a cup of hot water and steep for 5 minutes. Use a sieve to remove the tea infusion.
  • To serve, add the tapioca pearls to the bottom of a glass and some ice cubes. Then pour the tea, milk, and chocolate mixture into the glass. Stir well and enjoy.
