Bubble Tea
INGREDIENTS
Tapioca:
1/4 cup large pearl tapioca, dried
2 cups room temperature water
Sugar Syrup:
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
Tea:
Water
2 bags black tea (or two servings loose tea)
1/2 cup half & half
ice (optional)
Instructions
1. Prepare the tapioca: Put the dried tapioca in a medium bowl and add the room temperature water. Cover and let sit overnight to soften. Once plumped, strain, discarding water and reserving the tapioca (tapioca should be gummy-like in texture and taste).
2. Prepare sugar syrup: In a small saucepan, combine the sugars and measured water and set over medium-low heat. Let mixture heat until all of the sugar has dissolved. Cool mixture to room temperature.
3. Prepare the tea: Put tea into a small bowl. Put at least 20 ounces of water into your kettle and select the Black setting. Pour 16 ounces of the hot water over tea and let steep 3 to 5 minutes. Strain and cool to room temperature.
4. For each serving, put 1/4 cup each of the tapioca, sugar syrup and half & half into a tall glass. Add 1/2 of the tea and stir to combine. For a colder drink, add ice.
Serving note: Traditionally, Bubble Tea is served with a large straw so the tapioca can be enjoyed while sipping the tea.
