Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar or muscovado
  • 2 tbsp tapioca pearls  available from specialty stores or online
  • 1/2 cup black tea cooled
  • 1 cup macadamia milk
  • ice cubes

Instructions
 

To make the brown sugar syrup

  • Combine muscovado or brown sugar with ½ cup of water in a saucepan. Stir over low heat to dissolve the sugar, increase heat and bring to the boil. Boil for 5-7 minutes, until thick and syrupy. Set aside. 

To make the bubbles

  • Bring 500ml of water to the boil in a medium saucepan. Add the tapioca pearls and stir immediately for at least 1 minute. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring often, until the tapioca pearls are soft and to your liking. Drain and set aside in a bowl. Pour half the syrup over the pearls and allow to stand for 15 minutes – this also stops them from sticking together. 

To serve

  • To serve, place ice cubes in 2 glasses. Add half the tapioca pearls to each glass. Spoon the brown sugar syrup around the edge of the glass, pour in the tea and immediately top with macadamia milk.
