Selfmade Bubble Tea

Hi there (^.^)v

don't worry, this won't become a cooking blog x3
But since I'm very busy at the moment
here is just a small entry for you about my first selfamde Bubble Tea.

As you can guess from my others post: I love Bubble Tea ♥
In my opinion it's one of the best inventions in mankind xD
I love going to our local BoboQ store with my friends,
but sadly I don't have much time for this at the moment..
So I wanted to make my own Bubble Tea ^.^

Let me show you how to do it x3
So, first of all, this is what you need:

-Tea (I choose green tea, but you can also use another one)
-flavoured syrup (I choose passion fruit flavour)
-Tapioka pearls
I used small tapioka pearls (because they were colourful and looked so cute *-*), but they original recipe takes the bigger black ones (which I will use next time x3)

Ok, then you have to make some tea.
Better do this in advance, because it needs to cool down ^.^

Next step is to cook the tapioka pearls.
For one part of pearls, take eight parts of water.
Put the water into a pot and boil it.
When it boiles put in the tapioka pearls.
But really don't do it before the water boils! I read reports
about the pearls melting when warming together with the water q.q

Turn down the stove to medium heat and cook the pearls for 15-20 minutes.
The larger pearls need to be cooked longer, for some 35 minutes,
oh and don't use too much pearls x3 
I used a half cup and you will see how much came out of it...

After cooking the tapioka pearls,
put them in a colander and pour them with cold water.
Then put them in a bowl or something similar.

I think it's five times more than before cooking O.O

After cooking the pearls might be very sticky.
To avoid this, you can make some kind of syrup to put them in.
For this just boil 240 millilitre of water with 220 millilitre of sugar
until the sugar is dissolved. Let the mixture cool down and
then pour it over the tapioka pearls.
Conserved like this you can use it for two days when put in the fridge.

With all these preaparations done you are ready to make you Bubble Tea \(^-^)/

just tea
tea with syrup
and with bubbles ^-^

Later on I tryed a version with pomegranate juice ^-^
