Passionfruit mango boba is a fruity concoction with ice, boba (tapioca pearls), and jasmine green tea. This is one of my favorite beverages to drink on a hot summer day while sitting by the pool!
What’s Passionfruit Mango Boba
Passionfruit mango boba is a popular type of fruity bubble tea, which includes a mixture of blended passionfruit, mango, and green tea mixed with boba. Bubble tea has its origins in Taiwan but it has taken the entire world by storm with many different variations, including ones that are hot or cold, brews that have different types of tea or coffee, and mixtures that contain fruit.
This passionfruit mango bubble tea has jasmine green tea, which offers a perfect bitter note to compliment the sweeter tastes. You can use simple syrup to sweeten the tea even more, but I personally love honey because it is more nutritious and complexly flavored.
Related: we also have other fruity boba like honeydew boba.
There are only seven ingredients in this passionfruit mango boba and two of them are boiled water and ice cubes, so it is easy. Here are the ingredients:
Passionfruit Puree – You will have to make the passionfruit puree yourself as it isn’t easy to find in the grocery store. To make it, just cook the puree so it infuses into a sugar-water mixture and strain it.
Mango Cubes – Cubes of mango give this fun tea drink its bright orange color, body, and fruity taste with a hint of pine.
Cooked Boba Pearls – These are fun bursts of texture and essential to any bubble tea beverage with a delightfully chewy texture.
Jasmine Green Tea – A tea bag is the way to go for a sense of ease but you can use loose-leaf tea as well if you prefer.
Simple Syrup or Honey – What would this bubble tea be without sweet nectar-like simple syrup and/or honey? Use whichever one you like the best. I like honey in particular because it is slightly sweet and acidic, and you don’t have to make it yourself. The bees do it for you!
Hot Water – This is important for making the tea that you will add to the concoction.
Ice Cubes – These give the drink a refreshing quality and chill the brewed tea. Always use filtered water to make your ice cubes.
Don’t add any type of milk to passionfruit boba. All types of milk including cow milk or plant-based milk like coconut milk, almond milk, and even soy milk should be avoided. Because the sour content from the passion fruit will make the milk curdle like tofu pudding, which may cause Intestinal issues. We have tested this already. Milk contains proteins called caseins. When the pH of milk drops (becomes more acidic), caseins tend to stick together or coagulate, forming curds.

How Does Passionfruit Mango Boba Taste?
Passionfruit mango boba has a multitude of flavors such as sweet, fruity, and creamy. Passionfruit puree, mango, and simple syrup (or honey) give the tea its sweet, floral notes and fruitiness while the jasmine green tea adds fragrance and a hint of bitterness to balance out the beverage.
You can vary your passionfruit mango boba by doing these things.
- You can use popping boba that is filled with different fruit flavors in your passionfruit mango boba instead of traditional tapioca pearls for added flavor.
- Replace the cubes of orange mango with other types of fresh fruit like in-season peaches or nectarine. Just make sure they are super juicy and ripe, or they won’t blend into the drink well.
- Replace the jasmine green tea with other types of tea such as white tea or even a fruity herbal tea blend like hibiscus or chamomile if you are looking for something that is decaffeinated.
Is Passionfruit Mango Boba Healthy?
This fruity tea blend has a significant amount of nutrition in it from the fruit, as well as green tea. Both passionfruit and mango are high in vitamin C, which is an essential nutrient for maintaining immunity. They also include fiber which helps feed gut bacteria in order to maintain a healthy digestive system as well.
Like other types of green tea, jasmine tea includes many health benefits. In fact, it has links to improving heart health, preventing Alzheimer’s disease, and even inhibiting diabetes. A few cups of tea or even having it in this bubble tea drink would be a wonderful addition to anyone’s diet.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, it is! But, it is even more than that too. The mango has a slightly floral and pine-like taste that adds nuance to the bubble tea. The passionfruit also adds a slight acidity that is very appealing to this drink.
Yes, you can, although I recommend that you thaw the frozen mango first. Using thawed frozen mango will make this recipe more convenient as you won’t have to chop the mango yourself.
