*You will need a martini shaker for this recipe. Using a martini shaker creates a light foamy texture to the drink. This is how they shake and mix Bubble Tea in Taiwan!

1 Tea Drop of choice, (black tea preferred) melted in 4oz boiling water
1/4 cup brown sugar

Boba Directions:
1. In a small pot, bring 3 cups of water to boil.

4. Drain and rinse boba with warm water.
5.  Add just enough cold water to cover the pearls. Stir in 1/4 cup brown sugar to sweeten the boba.
