    Pearl tea is a delicious drink made with tea, milk, and large tapioca balls (the pearls). It is extremely popular in some Asian countries and is sometimes known as Bubble tea also.

      I halved this recipe for mom and myself and both of us loved it! Mom especially liked that it was light yet satisfying, and mildly sweet. For cooking the tapioca, I soaked it in enough water to cover it for 1/2 hour, then added an additional 1/2 cup water and cooked in the microwave at 80% power for 8 minutes. I don't have a cocktail shaker, so I used a bottle. It's fun watching the tapioca pearls separate when you add the tea mixture! Thanks tealeaf!

      Actually, Asians call this Bubble Tea with pearls, and are available in many flavours such as mango, strawberry, taro etc. The "pearls" they use are blackish. On the west coast of Canada where we have a large Asian population, there are many Bubble Tea cafes.
