bubble tea

A few years ago, bubble tea shops popped up everywhere around here.  I was dubious.  I was skeptical.  I couldn't wrap my head around the phenomenon.

In order to better understand what all the fuss was about, I did some research and found this recipe here.  Then my little guy and I headed to a local Asian food specialty market where we picked up some tapioca pearls and a packet of fat straws.

Along the way, we admired shelves and shelves of canned bamboo shoots, sliced and diced in every imaginable way.

An aisle devoted to pretty boxes full of tea...

Tapioca pearls for bubble tea.  Got it.

When we got home, we boiled up the bubbles
and made syrup according to these instructions.

bubble tea with lots of milk.
