Makes 1 drink
Â¼ strong black tea
Â¼ cup cooked large tapioca pearls
Â¼ fresh summer melon puree of choice
Â¼ cup coconut milk
Make black tea and allow to cool. Allow to cool in the refrigerator. In the meantime, bring a large pot of water to a boil on the stove. Add the tapioca pearls (make 2 cups for a batch to make 8-10 drinks). They will fall to the bottom of the pot. Allow to boil about 20 minutes. Take off heat and allow to rest covered for about 15 more minutes. Pearls should float when finished cooking. Place the pearls in a metal bowl and pour a little of melon puree and mix, just enough that they donâ€™t stick together. Place in the refrigerator and cool. To make the bubble tea, in a shaker filled with crushed ice, place Â¼ cup puree, Â¼ cup strong black tea, Â¼ cup coconut milk and shake vigorously. Pour the mixture into a glass and add tapioca pearls and stir.
