Directions: 

Steep Blueberry Ginseng Tea bags in 3 cups (750 mL) boiling water for 3 minutes. Remove tea bags and let cool. Refrigerate until cold.  

Simple Syrup: In saucepan, bring sugar and water to boil over medium heat; boil for 1 to 2 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Let cool and set aside.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Divide steeped tea between two tall glasses. Add 1/4 cup (60 mL) black tapioca pearls (boba) and 2 tbsp (30 mL) simple syrup to each glass. (Refrigerate remaining syrup in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.) 

For milky bubble tea, add desired amount of milk, sweetened condensed milk or almond milk. Top with ice.
