  • Summary

    Iced tea with tapioca pearls that are sucked from a large straw are perhaps Taiwan’s most famous culinary export. These bouncy, chewy balls are fun to munch on, much like chewing gum. The teas may be milky or not, sweetened or not, and flavored with any number of additional powders or infusions, like mango. My favorite style is this classic black tea with milk, and sweetened.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup tapioca pearls (found in the dry goods section in Asian groceries)
    • 4 cups freshly brewed strong black tea
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • Ice cubes, for shaking
    • 1/2 cup whole milk
