2 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup jump tapioca pearls
2 cups boiling water
1 cup strong-brewed fruit-flavor herb tea (such as lemon, orange, or raspberry, chilled)
1 cup 1% milk
1 tablespoon honey or granulated sugar
For syrup: In a medium saucepan, combine 2 1/2 cups water and sugar; bring to boiling. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer for 5 minutes. Let cool.
Meanwhile, in another medium saucepan, cook tapioca in 2 cups boiling water for 25 to 30 minutes or until completely softened. Pour into colander. Rinse well; drain. IN a large bowl combine syrup and tapioca. Chill several hours or until cold.
To serve, place tea, milk, honey and tapioca with syrup in a large jar with a lid. Shake until combined and foamy. Divide among six 8-ounce glasses. Serve with jumbo straws.
