Prepare tea by adding 1 tea bag (or 2 teaspoon of loose leaf tea) to 1 cup (235ml) of boiled water.
Steep for 5 minutes & let cool down completely.
Then add tapioca pearls to a pan full of boiling hot water.
Simmer for 5-6 minutes. Important - Read the instructions on your boba packaging. Cooking times vary per brand!
Reserve 3 tablespoon of boiling water from the boba pan. Then remove pearls from heat and strain.
Cover the pearls with the reserved water & sugar. Stir well & set aside.
To serve, add tapioca balls to a large glass. Then fill the glass with ice cubes (optional, but highly recommended).
Add (cooled down) tea. Then add rose water & cold milk.
Stir well & adjust to taste. You can add more sugar, milk, tea etc.
Add optional toppings like whipped cream, rose petals, syrups, sprinkles, etc.
