2. Stir gently, then cook for 2 minutes on high with the lid on.

3. Reduce heat to low. Cook for a further 18-20 minutes with the lid on, stirring occasionally.


4. Remove a pearl and rinse under cold water:
Cold drinks - pearls should be chewy but soft all the way through.

5. Turn off the heat and leave pearls to sit in the pot with the lid on for a further 5 minutes.


6. Brew 1 tea bag in 3/4 cup (180ml) of freshly boiled water. Infuse for 3-4 minutes.

7. Add 1/2 glass ice, the brewed tea and the milk tea powder to your shaker/air-tight container.
IMPORTANT - ADD ICE FIRST to prevent the shaker becoming hot.

Classic milk tea powder: 1 heaped scoop (40g)
Non-dairy milk tea powder: 1.5 scoops (45g)
