SERVINGS: 1 x 500mL
PREP/COOKING TIME: ~10 min
TEA (we recommend steeping your tea first to allow more time to chill):
1. In your tea steeper ball, add 1-2 tsps of tea leaves + 250mL of hot water. Steep for 3-5 minutes depending on strength.
2. Set aside and allow to chill. You can also let it chill in the fridge.
1. Pour 1/3 cup of tapioca into a microwavable bowl/cup. Add hot water until pearls are submerged. Stir lightly.
2. Microwave for 45 seconds, stir and microwave for another 45 seconds, repeat once more for 45 seconds. Adjust time to preference. Drain and add your choice of sweetener for at least 5 minutes.
1. Bring 1 + 1/2 cups (375mL) of water to boil. Add 1/3 cup of tapioca pearls slowly and stir lightly. Wait until tapioca pearls float to the surface.
2. Cover pot and cook on medium heat for 1-2 minutes. Tapioca pearls will puff up.
4. Rinse with cold water and mix in ~1 tbsp of brown sugar (or your choice of sweetener).
LET'S PUT IT TOGETHER:
1. Add tapioca pearls to your cup. With the remaining 1/2-1 tbsp of brown sugar syrup, add to the sides of your cup. Adjust sweetness to your liking.
2. Add ice and pour 1/4 cup (60mL) of your choice of milk.
3. Pour in your chilled tea, stir, and enjoy!
