RECIPES
Whoa!!! Now you can make bubble tea all by yourself!!


Recipes

Recipe #1:

1. 1/2 cup chilled, cooked large Chinese tapioca pearls (if substituting regular small tapioca, use 1/3 cup).
2. 1 cup crushed ice.
3. 1 cup very strong chilled black tea (or orange pekoe tea or Chinese litchi tea).
4. 1 cup milk, or to taste Honey or sugar to taste.

Place the pearls in a large parfait glass. Combine all remaining ingredients in a cocktail shaker, and shake vigorously until the mixture is frothy. Pour into the glass, and serve with extra-thick straws.

Yield: One 16-ounce drink

Variations: prepare the tapioca pearls by adding with sugar to boiling water and simmer briefly; use a blender; add various flavorings (coffee, almond, etc. -- use your imagination); use sweetened condensed milk; use green tea, etc.

Recipe #2:

1. Jar of tapioca balls with sweetened syrup (usually in brown or red).
2. Condensed milk (preferably Longevity Brand).
3. Tea. Possible choices are: Chinese tea, such as Oolong or Black, or Japanese Green Tea. Coffee would make a perfect substitution in case tea is not around.
4. 3 teaspoons of sugar.
5. Boiling pot of water.
6. Strainer.

Preparation:

For a single serving, use a quarter cup of tapioca balls. For servings of two or three, use half the jar. Use the entire jar for family servings. Pour desired amount from the jar into a strainer so that all the syrup separates from the tapioca balls. Bring a pot of water to boil. Once the water starts boiling, put in the tapioca balls. Add 3 teaspoons of sugar (so that the tapioca balls have a softer yet chewier texture). Let the tapioca balls boil for about 5 minutes. Bring the pot to simmer for 3 minutes. Then drain and rinse in cold water using the strainer. Leave it in the strainer. Prepare a pot of tea. Afterwards, open a can of condensed milk and pour about a tablespoon into a 12oz. glass. (For single servings, use about a tablespoon of condensed milk, as this stuff is really thick and sweet. For bigger servings, add to taste). Refrigerate unused condensed milk after opening. Add about 8 ounces of tea to the glass of condensed milk. Mix until the condensed milk has fully dissolved into the tea. From the strainer, pour the tapioca balls into the glass of milk and tea.

Recipe #3:

Ingredients:

3 oz dry tapioca pearls
2 tablespoons sugar
Boiling water

1. Add tapioca pearls and half of the sugar to boiling water in a large bowl. Stir quickly to separate pearls and dissolve sugar completely. Let stand 3 hrs or until pearls are squishy on the outside and pasty in the center when squelched between thumb and index finger (some sources say to soak it overnight, but with all the brands I've tried, that doesn't work, period). If stirring them makes the water really cloudy, you've oversoaked them...

2. Drain tapioca pearls, but keep the water. Put water and remaining sugar in saucepan and bring to a boil. Put in soaked tapioca pearls and lower heat to medium high. Simmer, taking a pearl out every minute and eating it. You have to sample it in order to see how cooked it is--every tapioca pearl brand has a different cooking time. The cooking time ranges from 1 minute to even 10 minutes. The pearls are done when the outside is soft, and the center is chewy. Some brands of tapioca pearls tend to turn chewy when cooled, so if you've overcooked them, there's a chance they'll be ok when refrigerated.

3. Put cold water in a bowl; drain pearls and put into cold water to stop cooking. Finish!

Makes about 1/4 to 1/2 c, depending on the size of the pearls.

Note: If you don't keep the pearls in the water, they'll dry out & turn inedible. However, keeping them in water overnight turns them into mush, so eat them ASAP

Recipe #4:

As many dry boba (from the bags) as you think you need

1. Boil a pot of water (use a pot coated with the nonstick stuff....it's easier to clean up in case you mess up the project =) ). While you wait for the water to boil, make sure the boba you're using is round (do not use broken pieces of boba...it ruins the pot of boba).
2. Once water is rapidly boiling, add boba to the water. Let boba cook in boiling water for five minutes; gently stir during this time.
3. After five minutes, turn the stove off. Cover the pot of boba and let the pot sit for 30 minutes.
4. Bring the pot of boba back to a boil. Let it boil for 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the pot sit for another 30 minutes.
5. Bring the pot of boba back to a boil; let it boil for 3 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the pot sit for 1 hour.
6. Bring the pot of boba back to a boil and boil for 5 minutes.
7. Remove pot from heat and add enough sugar to your taste (I used about 3 spoonfuls...sorry my recipe isn't more precise!)

Tea:

1 package 3 in 1 instant tea per serving

1. For every package of 3 in 1 instant tea, boil 1/4 cup of water. Put instant tea into a cup. Pour boiling water into that cup and mix until dissolved. Add 3/4 cold water per serving. Then add boba to tea, along with those funky straws, and you've got your own boba! Yummy!!
