Lynn loves bubble tea. I think maybe loves doesn’t do it justice. Lynn loves lots of things, me (I’m told), her puppy, not being cold, but none of these things compare to bubble tea. To try and appease her and coax more back scratches out of her I tried making our own bubble tea. It’s not as sweet as you normally find at brightly lit Asian cafes (which I think is a plus) and it still has all the fun of choking on tapioca balls from a flood of them coming up the straw at once. Credit where credit’s due.
8 oz black tea
1/4 cup tapioca pearls (Bob’s Red Mill are the only I can find readily at HEB)
Sugar (if you must)
1. Make yourself some black tea and some tapioca pearls per both instructions
2. Put the tapioca pearls in the bottom of a glass, add ice, the black tea and then pour in milk to top
3. Add sugar (optional) and stir
4. Get the biggest honkin straw you can find and try not to choke
