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!

This is a wonderful, refreshing drink. I had a big late season honey dew and the only tapioca in the house was light tan. But tasty nonetheless. The only thing I've had out was bubble tea with just tea, and bubble coffee. The pureed fruit adds another dimension altogether!This would be so easy to make up a big pitcher and have it waiting in thd fridge!
