Milk Black Tea with Tapioca Pearl

We all know moka pot  can be used to make good dark espresso coffee.  Not many people know you can make tea with it too!  I love making strong tea with moka pot and then use it for my milk black tea.  It is awesome and super easy!

Ingredients: (serves 1 to 2 people)

4 black tea bags
1 1/4 cup water
1 1/4 cup whole milk
3 to 4 tablespoon sweetened condensed milk
2 teaspoons honey
black tapioca pearl
simple syrup/ honey (optional)



Black tapioca pearl  is an important ingredient in Asian milk tea.  It can be found in most Asian grocery stores or online. 

Cook the black tapioca pearl according to the cooking instruction on its package.  Drain well and soak the pearl in honey. Put aside for later use.

Mix whole milk and condensed milk.  Heat over medium low heat until the mixture almost boils.  Remove from heat.  Stir in simple syrup or honey if needed.

Add water to moka pot.  Empty all four tea bags to the pot.

Heat over medium heat.  It is exactly the same process as making coffee.

The tea starts to come out on top.

Smells good

Ok, now we have a small pot of gorgeous black tea.

Divide the tea into two cups along with cooked black tapioca pearl.

Add milk mixture

Stir everything together.  Serve immediately with large milkshake straws.
