comment How to make bubble tea - the “real” (tea-less) version? Is there a way to create the powdered flavoring?
I'll definitely try this if only I can find the powder! I've looked in many Asian groceries for it but have never been able to find it. Was it on the East Coast?

My versions taste like sugar water instead of something more full-bodied. Does this help? I'll try to post a photo here if I can find one.

Sure thing. I know we don't do recipes, but I'm hoping someone might know the place to buy, the makeup of the actual ingredient, or something that will lead me to the right answer. When I've tried in the past, my drink is not sweet enough, it has no flavor, and it really tastes like nothing in general (except for the taste of sugar syrup from the pearl solution). The real drinks have a colorful, milky, and creamy look, and are bursting with flavor, leading me to believe that the main ingredient is a very strong flavoring.

I've tried several times to use nondairy creamer, powdered milk, sugar, and flavorings, but I'm not even close to the real deal. I could try the more scientific route, but I'm hoping someone knows the actual ingredients that will at least come close. I'm fairly sure that the original formula calls doesn't call for highly unique ingredients. Perhaps someone knows a place to order or locally (Northeast) purchase such ingredients/powders in smaller volume.
