    Sandi (From CA)'s Note:

    This looked too good not to post. Be all the rage while drinking the latest Asian trend in teas! How silly, huh? Drink it because it's GOOD! *Large, specialty tapioca pearls specifically designed for bubble teas are available in Asian markets and gourmet food stores. If using straws, make sure they have a large diameter.

      Hmmm, I've been trying to figure out just how to rate this recipe. I found it long ago and saved and just kept forgetting to make it once I found the peral tapioca. I feel this is one of those recipes that you really have to work with for personal taste. For me it needed a lot more tang; maybe using honey instead of sugar, and lemonade instead of orange juice for tartness. That said, it sure looked pretty in the glass and think I'll tinker with this very unsual drink - I liked the chewiness of the tapioca and used cantalope for the melon, but need to increase the tang for my personal taste.

      This would be very good, but my tapioca hardened back up again after I boiled it. I think it needs more boil time. I will have to experiment more.

      This was so yummy! I used white tea instead of green and chose cantaloupe for my melon. I've loved bubble tea for years, and it's nice to see it becoming mainstream so that it's easier to find pearl tapioca to make it at home! Thanks Sandi!
