"A fun slushy drink with chewy tapioca pearls! If you can find extra wide straws, put one in each drink so you can suck the pearls up the straw and chew on them while you are drinking!"

  1. Fill a saucepan about halfway with water, and bring to a boil. Add the tapioca pearls, and return to a boil. Stir to make sure they do not start to stick together or to the pot. Cover, and simmer over medium heat for 45 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand for 30 minutes, then rinse and drain. The pearls should be squishy and black. Stir some of the honey into the pearls so they are coated.
  2. Place the milk, any remaining honey, tea mix, and ice into the container of a blender. Cover, and blend to your desired slushiness. Pour the tea into two large glasses. Spoon half of the tapioca pearls into each glass. If you can find extra wide straws, place one into each drink to suck up the pearls and chew on them while you are drinking.

Footnotes

  • Note
  • Use the tapioca pearls soon after cooking them. Do not store them in the refrigerator, or they will lose their chewy texture!

I feel this recipe may have been unfairly rated by some -- don't confound a distaste for boba/bubble tea itself with an unsuccessful recipe. You can find boba, black large-pearl tapioca, at most...

Wonderful!!! You either like bubble tea or you don't. Don't let the other reviews scare you away from trying it! It's very time consuming but very worth it.

Doesn't taste like the bottled stuff at all.

Such a neat drink idea! I could only find small tapioca pearls but I used the chai tea mix from this site BUT I was not able to find powdered, unsweetened tea mix so I just brewed some regular t...

Definately not my thing, the chewy tapioca pearls were just too odd for for me. But if you are a tea lover, you may want to try it.

Yeah, just like someone else said on here, you either like it or dont like it so dont be scared to try. this is actually a pretty good base recipe, i flavored mine with coconut and used green te...

I was skeptical, but thought I would give this a go. I really wish I hadn't.

Honey dew bubble tea is my favorite. I buy it from a Japanese tea lounge, and it is the most delicious thing for a hot summer day.
