  • Pour water into a pot and bring to a boil. Add tea bag and sugar. Return to a boil and stir until sugar has dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and allow tea to steep for 30 minutes.

  • Discard tea bag. Let tea cool to room temperature. Refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours, or overnight.

  • Fill 2 glasses 2/3 full of chilled tea. Slowly pour 1/4 cup coconut milk into each glass.

Cook's Notes:

You may use any other kind of creamer, such as coconut cream, regular milk, condensed milk, or a combination of any of these.

Also, play with the sugar level...it can be as sweet or unsweet as you choose.

Add 1/4 cup cooked boba pearls to each glass in step 4, if desired.
