Infused with the rich, creamy flavor of black milk tea and sprinkled with a hint of sweetness, this popcorn is sure to satisfy your cravings for a sweet and savory treat. Plus, with the convenience of the air fryer, you can enjoy perfectly popped kernels with minimal effort and maximum flavor. So, let's get popping and dive into a bowl of this delectable snack!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon black tea leaves (such as Earl Grey or Assam)

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • Optional: additional sugar for sprinkling

Instructions:

  1. Preheat Your Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 370°F (187°C) for about 3 minutes.

  2. Prepare the Black Milk Tea Infusion: In a small saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over low heat. Once melted, add the black tea leaves to the butter and let them steep for 5 minutes, allowing the butter to infuse with the tea's flavor. Strain the butter to remove the tea leaves, then set aside.

  3. Pop the Popcorn: Place the popcorn kernels in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Cook the popcorn at 370°F (187°C) for 8-10 minutes, shaking the basket occasionally to ensure even cooking. Once the popping slows down, carefully transfer the popcorn to a large bowl.

  4. Coat the Popcorn: Drizzle the infused butter over the popped popcorn, tossing gently to coat evenly. Sprinkle the granulated sugar and salt over the popcorn, continuing to toss until all the kernels are coated in the buttery-sweet mixture.

  5. Air-Fry the Popcorn: Return the coated popcorn to the air fryer basket, spreading it out into a single layer. Air-fry the popcorn at 370°F (187°C) for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the sugar begins to caramelize slightly and the popcorn is golden brown and crispy.

  6. Cool and Serve: Once done, carefully remove the air-fried black milk tea popcorn from the air fryer and let it cool slightly before serving. If desired, sprinkle the popcorn with additional sugar for an extra touch of sweetness.

  7. Enjoy! Serve this irresistible air-fried black milk tea popcorn as a snack for movie nights, gatherings with friends, or anytime you're craving a unique and delicious treat. Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days for optimal freshness.

Tips for the Perfect Air-Fried Black Milk Tea Popcorn: A Flavorful Twist on a Classic Snack

  • Choose high-quality tea leaves: For the best flavor, opt for loose-leaf black tea with bold, robust flavors such as Earl Grey or Assam. Avoid using tea bags, as they may not impart as much flavor to the butter.

  • Adjust the sweetness: Feel free to adjust the amount of sugar to suit your taste preferences. You can increase or decrease the sugar slightly depending on how sweet you like your popcorn.

  • Experiment with toppings: Get creative and customize your air-fried black milk tea popcorn with toppings like chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or dried fruit for added texture and flavor.

  • Pair with a refreshing beverage: This popcorn pairs perfectly with a hot cup of black milk tea or a cold glass of iced tea for a complete black tea-inspired snacking experience.

With its enticing aroma, satisfying crunch, and unique flavor profile, this air-fried black milk tea popcorn is sure to become a new favorite in your snack rotation. Whether enjoyed solo or shared with loved ones, this delicious treat is guaranteed to delight your taste buds and transport you to tea time bliss.
