Bubble tea is very popular, especially to Asians, but now, more and more people from different backgrounds like the taste of it. I'm no expert at this, but I do know how to make it. It's simple but some of the ingredients may be a little tough to find. Just be patient and look for them in Chinese grocery stores. It is worth the trouble!

This recipe works fairly well. However, I would recommend cooking your tapioca pearls for longer... 30 minutes or more. After the said 20 minutes, just watch the pearls until they are cooked to your preference. Also, when storing your pearls, coat them with honey or sugar syrup so they do not stick together. If you want flavoured bubble tea, simply add frozen juice concentrate in the flavour of your choice. Keep adding it tsp at a time until it is flavourful enough. Chocolate syrup is also quite good.

The general problem of US bubble tea is the pearls do not have the chewness we have in Taiwan. When I make it at home, I would cook the pearls then move the pearls into rice cooker and cook for another 15 minutes until the middle is completely cook. The pearls aren't fully cook if it still shows a little white dot in the middle. Once that's done. Run cold water through it 3 times. You'll have the most chewy pearls you'll ever taste. Definitely leave them in honey or syrup so they don't stick together.

Definitely cook the tapioca at least 35-40 minutes. I run a bubble tea shop in Corpus Christi, TX 7314 SPID, and we use Choobees because you don't have to cook them...much easier! No cooking required!!
