A few years back (2008) I was visiting friends in San Francisco and I was introduced to the delicious Bubble Tea.
Many of you will think now “Bubble Tea”?? Never heard of!
I had never heard of Bubble Tea prior to my visit in SF, but originally this is an Asian drink. In Norway this is an “unheard-of” phenomenon (or, as I also like to call it, non-existing).
Over the years I have not returned to SF, but I have been to the US several times and I have tried searching for the main ingredient, Tapioca Pearls, but I never found them. I found lots of white pearls, but never the black ones that I wanted. You can probably use the white pearls as well, but… it looks way cooler with the dark “bubbles”.
I searched E-bay and until recently I didnt find a seller that would ship to Norway, but finally! yesterday a small bag of black Tapioca Pearls was waiting for me in my mailbox!
- 2 table spoons of liquid honey (In Norway honey can be hard, but just as delicious)
- 1 cup of pre-made tea (and cooled down)
- 1 cup of milk
- Tapioca Pearls
Prepare the tea, add the honey and let it cool down. Blend with the milk.
Crush som ice cubes and add it all in a glass.
Add the soft Tapioca pearls and … And Abracadabra! A delicious glass of Bubble Tea – Ready for your enjoyment !
