Autumn is a beautiful and comfortable season, with trees laden with fruit, creating a bountiful harvest. The weather is mild, not too hot nor too cold, allowing people to immerse themselves in the enchanting autumn colors. However, the autumn climate can be cool, with significant temperature differences between morning and evening, and dry winds and little rain. These conditions often lead to dry throats and skin, a condition known as “autumn dryness.” To counter this, it is essential to focus on hydrating and moisturizing in our diet. Fruit bubble tea is an excellent choice for the autumn season, providing a refreshing and nutritious option to combat autumn dryness. Here are ten fruit bubble tea recipes to enjoy during this season.

Wash the mint leaves, then add the lemon slices, a few passion fruits, and rock sugar to a tea pot with water. Boil for 15 minutes, then add the mint leaves and simmer for another 3 minutes.
