Total time
Serves: 2
  • 2 bags of green tea (or any tea flavor of your choice)
  • 2 servings of tapioca pearls (about ⅓ cup per serving)
  • Milk to taste
  • Sugar to taste
  1. Cook the tapioca pearls:
  2. Fill a medium pot with cold water and bring it to a boil with high heat.
  3. Carefully add in the tapioca pearls into the water, stir gently to avoid the pearls sticking together.
  4. Continue boiling for one minute, then cover the pot with a lid and turn the heat down to medium.
  5. Cook the tapioca pearls for the length recommended on the package (about 5-6 minutes).
  6. Turn off the heat and leave them covered for a few minutes before draining the hot water.
  7. Rinse the tapioca pearls in cold water, drain and transfer to a small bowl to set aside.
  8. Prepare Tea:
  9. Place two tea bags in a large cup or mug. Pour boiled water over the tea bag, steep for a minute or two, remove tea bag. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar stir and set aside.
  10. Assembly:
  11. Put one serving of the cooked tapioca pearls into a mug. Pour in about 1 cup of the sweetened tea, add ½ cup of milk. Stir and taste the milk tea. Add more milk, sugar or tea to your taste. Throw in a few ice cubes if you'd like to make a cold drink. Enjoy!
Fun fact: April 30th is the National Bubble Tea Day!
