As this was the thing I was thankful for yesterday, thought I’d share my favourite recipe for it today!
What you’ll need:
bubble tea tapioca (available at asian grocers)
2 cups water
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup strong tea
2 teaspoons honey
1/3 cup milk
What you do with the stuff:
1- Boil the tapioca over medium heat for 20 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit for 25 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.
2- Combine sugars and water in a separate pan. Bring to a boil and let sugar dissolve. Remove from heat. Place tapioca in the syrup and let refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
3- Make a strong cup of tea. Dissolve honey in the tea. Place in refrigerator to cool.
4- Place 2-4 Tablespoons of tapioca in bottom of a tall glass. Pour over cooled tea. Fill with ice. Add milk to fill to top of glass. Stir well. Insert wide straw or use spoon to scoop up tapioca. Enjoy!
