My name is Erin, and I am from Australia. I have recently heard about bubble tea, but since there are no shops around here, I decided to make my own.
I started my journey off at the local grocery mart where I work. I asked the manager if we sold Tapioca pearls.. He shrugged, and pranced me down the dessert isle and handed me a little packet of Sago and told me that they were the same thing.
I'm curious... If I use Sago instead of Tapioca Pearls, will my bubble tea be all that different? Is Sago the same as Tapioca?
Also, where can I find a good recipe for Bubble tea on the net, not using any pre-mix powders/packs.
