  • Summary

    Just as they do in sweet Chinese bubble tea, fat, chewy pearls of tapioca bring a certain levity to pears in a fragrant spiced-cider "broth." Satsuma segments add hits of sweetness to this chic, playful dessert.

    • 1 cup large white tapioca pearls (1/4 inch in diameter)
    • 4 firm satsumas or clementines, divided

    • 2/3 cup sugar
    • 1/3 cup mild honey
    • 2 (3-inch) cinnamon sticks
