Today we decided to make Apple Cinnamon Honey Dew Bubble Tea :) it was the most delicious combination of flavors yet!
2 Cups Pearl Tapioca
3 Tbsp Honey (You can also use simple syrup if you prefer)
Apple Cinnamon Tea
Milk (I used Rice Milk)
4-5 squirts of Honey Dew flavored syrup
Wide Straws (Straws with Tapered ends make getting any remaining tapioca easier at the end of the drink)
Get a sauce pan to a roiling boil with about 4 Cups of water. (It is imperative that the water is boiling before you add the tapioca or it will turn into goop)
Strain out 2 Cups of Pearl Tapioca to shake off any loose powder.
Add the pearl tapioca to the boiling water and stir continuously for about 10-15 minutes (they should be a little bit chewy).
Pour into a strainer and run cold water on the tapioca to keep from sticking together.
Add 3 Tbsp Honey to a Container with a lid, heat up for about 15 seconds. Add the tapioca to the Container and top just barely with cold water. Stir until the honey is thoroughly mixed in.
Pour the brewed tea in to a Large glass (possibly a pilsner glass) about 3/4 or a little more full. Add 4-5 squirts of the Honey Dew syrup. Put 2-3 Large spoonfuls of the Tapioca into the glass. Top off with any kind of milk you would like, I used rice milk. Place the straw into the cup and stir thoroughly. Enjoy!
