DIY Milk Tea with Pearls

I've never really been big on happy cup because I have a habit of taking a bottle of water everywhere I go.

But i like making bubble milk tea at home, and knowing what i'm putting in my body.

I bought a packet of tapioca pearls, they can be found at pretty much in any Chinese grocery stores.
depending on how much you use, one packet is equivalent to 4-6 serves for me. I like my pearls
Step 1:

Bring water to boil

Step 2
Once boiled put in desired amount of tapioca pearls in the boiling water
Step 3: cook till the pearls start to float up like in the pic below..
Step 4: take Pearls out and run it under cold water then rest it dry
Step 5: make your tea, put in the pearls LAST.
If you don't have a sweet tooth, use milk and condensed milk
If you like your sweets like me use milk, a teaspoon of sugar and some honey Once that's done spoon in the pearls!
Personally, I think it tastes better.. none of that watered down or powdered milk taste ;)
