Very Popular Bubble Tea

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2012
So, I tried this just out of interest, and was the at first really unimpressed. I cooked the tapioca (I had dried pearls) for around 40 minutes, and they still had the white in them, which made them really too chewy in my opinion. I will attempt to cook it longer next time. I also took other reviewers' advice and coated the tapioca in honey before refrigeration. (Also cut down the sugar a large amount). So I tried it in black tea, and it was okay, but the tapioca was still too chewy and tasteless. I had some tapioca left over, which I stuck in the fridge overnight. I took it out the next evening, and tried it and WOW! It had gotten sweeter and more tender overnight. I had it in Rasberry tea (don't put the milk in Rasberry, mine curdled the first time, yuck), and it was delicious. For those of you with tougher "bubbles," try leaving them in honey in the fridge overnight-- not sure it's a real technique, but it worked for me.
