5 Hour EDIBLE WATER Bubble (carbonated)

Is the creation of edible spheres all that reverse spherification is about?🤔

Let me show you how you can take this molecular gastronomy culinary technique on a different LEVEL!

In this post I’ll share with you not only the process of how to make an edible water bubble, but also how to carbonate it, and create a carbonated sphere filled with magic tea!🤩

A little gassy, bloated, yet beautiful edible water sphere.

Part 1 - Edible Magic Tea spheres

  • 200g Magic Tea
  • 6g Calcium Lactate
  • 1g Xanthan Gum
  • 1L Water
  • 5g Sodium Alginate

Ingredients, you’ll need


  1. Steep some Magic Tea, cool down.
  2. Blend the tea with Calcium Lactate and Xanthan Gum.
  3. Pour the edible water mix in a squeeze bottle and let it rest for a while (until the bubble disappear).
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the reverse spherification baths.
  5. Blend water with Sodium Alginate, pour in the 1st bath.
  6. Fill up 2 other baths with clear water.
  7. Pour a teaspoon of edible Magic Tea mix in the 1st bath. The sphere will form. 
  8. Transfer this edible sphere into the 2nd and later 3rd bath.
  9. Follow the video demo.

Part 2 - Carbonation

  • 2 CO2 (soda) chargers



  1. Transfer the edible tea bubbles into a culinary siphon.
  2. Add in a little water.
  3. Close the siphon and charge with 2 soda / CO2 chargers.
  4. Let the siphon carbonate for 3-5 hours*
  5. Release the pressure inside the culinary siphon.
  6. Open and let the bloated, gassy carbonated edible water spheres out.
  7. Enjoy!
*you can leave it for longer, but they might get over-bloated.
