Boil water in a pot. Carefully pour bubbles into boiling water and stir gently to prevent sticking. Turn the heat up to MEDIUM HIGH and cook uncovered for 35 minutes. Stir occasionally.
While the bubbles cook, make tea as directed. See STEP 2.
After 35 minutes, turn off the heat and remove from stove. Pour out half of the bubble water and stir in sugar until dissolve. Cover the pot with a lid and let sit for another 25 minutes.
When the time is up, carefully drain out the excess water—be careful since it’ll still be hot. Leaving about a cup of bubble water to prevent sticking. Stir in a couple ice cubes until the bubbles reach room temperature.
For the best possible texture and experience, consume cooked bubbles (bobas/ tapioca pearls) within 2 hours.
***Store any leftover uncooked bubbles in a sealed or airtight container in a cool/dry area. Do NOT store in the fridge. Once opened, uncooked bubble will last approximately 2 weeks. Once cooked, bubble will only be good for about 4-6 hours. Do not refrigerate.
