INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • FOR TEA
  • 34
    cup brewed tea (I use black but you can use chai or green tea too)
  • 1
    cup ice cube
  • 2
    tablespoons sugar syrup
  • 12
    cup milk
  • 14
    cup tapioca (optional)
  • FOR SUGAR SYRUP
  • 12
  • 1
    cup water

DIRECTIONS

  • Make the sugar syrup by combining granulated sugar, brown sugar, and water into a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Stirring often.
  • Once mixture begins to simmer remove from heat. Cool and refrigerate until ready to use. Will keep for up to a month in a tightly sealed container.
  • Once syrup is chilled, combined tea, syrup, milk, and ice in a shaker or blender. I prefer a shaker but if you like blended drinks use a blender.
  • Shake until completely mixed.
  • Add tapioca pearls to a tall glass and pour in milk tea.
  • Use a large straw and enjoy!
