Brown Sugar Coconut Bubble Tea

I have an unadulterated love for chewy things. Chewy bread is my first love. Chewy desserts are second up and probably the reason why I navigate myself towards tapioca pearls and mochi cake.
I saw this recipe and I made it immediately, mostly for the fact that it reminds me of one of my favorite Vietnamese dessert/ drinks called "Suong Sa." It's basically a lightly sweetened coconut milk based drink filled with grass jelly and tapioca pearls. That's probably why I love tapioca pearls so much, because a LOT of Vietnamese desserts use tapioca pearls and I grew up chewing on the stuff and now it's my crack!

See how pretty they are? Glassy, gelatinous and chewy. This drink was really good, and almost exactly like my favorite Vietnamese drink! I really loved it. Next time, I'll probably add some grass jelly to complete it. The coconut milk makes it really smooth and rich, so the fact that it's lightly sweetened is smart, because it could get very heavy, very easily.
Mmmm, rich & refreshing!

Brown Sugar Coconut Bubble Tea

Adapted from here.

  9. I am about to tell you about Boba tea? There are many factors which influenced the development of Boba tea. While it is becoming a hot topic for debate, it is impossible to overestimate its impact on modern thought. The juxtapositioning of Boba tea with fundamental economic, social and political strategic conflict draws criticism from global commercial enterprises, whom I can say no more about due to legal restrictions. Keeping all of this in mind, in this essay I will examine the major issues.
