1. Make The Boba: Add two cups of water into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Scoop tapioca bubbles into the water and boil until the pearls start floating to the top. Scoop floating boba into a metal mesh strainer and rinse with cool water.
2. Make The Tea: Heat water in a teapot or electric tea kettle to 212°F or 100°C. Add the loose-leaf black tea to a tea infuser and place it in a thin glass. Pour heated water over the tea and let steep for 7-10 minutes.
