Bubble Tea or Pearl Milk Tea (PMT) was invented in Taiwan in the 1980s and can now be found in most major cities across the world, particularly in South East Asia. I guess people just love the novelty of sipping cold tea and chewing little "pearls" as they go, so we decided to try making it at home.
My very own Pearl Milk Tea
This is surprisingly easy to make and lots of fun too. I found a prized packet of the Tapioca Pearls in our local Asian Grocer, so you might have to hunt around to find something similar. If you want to add a fruit flavor like they do in the traditional Bubble Tea shops, then maybe try strawberry or you could use green tea instead of black tea.
