One of my good friends works at a very chic local coffee shop. Think Starbucks but much more space and variety. One of their most popular drinks is Bubble Tea. I had never tried it and wanted to see what all the hype was about so I found a recipe for homemade bubble tea. I absolutely love Tapioca so the Tapioca balls are so tempting.
¼ cup of flavored syrup or 1 package of powder (about ¼ cup per package)
¼ cup of hot water
¾ cup brewed tea, chilled
2 tablespoons sugar syrup
2 tablespoons tapioca balls, cooked Ice
Shake the first four ingredients in a cocktail shaker.
Bring some water to a boil in a kettle. Measure 2 tablespoons of tapioca balls into a microwave-safe container. Pour boiling water on top of the tapioca balls to cover. Microwave for 1 minute.
Strain the tapioca balls and pour into cup.
Add some ice. Serve with a wide straw and enjoy!
