If you do not like adding tea to your beverage, add additional juice or ice. Either way, this refreshing drink is sure to please!
Traditionally, bubble tea uses large tapioca pearls; use whatever you can find--the recipe is delicious with any size tapioca.
If no package directions are given for tapioca pearls, make as follows: In 2-quart saucepan, heat 2 cups water to boiling. Add tapioca; cook about 15 minutes or until pearls are tender but still chewy. Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, heat 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar over low heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Set aside to cool, then add to cooked tapioca pearls, allowing them to absorb the sweetness.
