How to Make Bubble Tea (Tapioca Milk Tea Recipe) 珍珠奶茶 | Cooking Video Recipe

Any famous boba tea place? Let me know 😋
I did not really like Tapioca for many years but recently I had a quite good Tapioca milk tea at a local restaurant and got interested in making it at home. hehe



Bubble Tea

This Tapioca Express was very easy yet delicious with nice chewy texture 💖

カルディでは500円くらいでもっと安かったです。

---------------------------------

How to Make Tapioca Bubble Tea


Difficulty: VERY Easy
Time: 60min
Number of servings: 2 servings

This Tapioca product is 4 servings so maybe you want to double the Tea recipe.
Tapioca is perfect for Ice cream topping as well.
You can save Tapioca in the freezer, defrost at room temperature to use.

Ingredients:
1 box Tapioca Express (おうちでタピオカ)
2 earl grey tea bags (or any favorite flavor is OK)
1 cup (240ml) hot water
1 cup (240ml) milk
2 tbsp. granulated sugar

Directions:
1. Use a big spouted measuring cup, pour some hot water over the tea bags and leave for about 15~30 minutes.
2. Remove the tea bags, mix in granulated sugar, and cool in the fridge.
3. Meanwhile, put Tapioca in boiling water and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir immediately to avoid them sticking to the bottom of the pot.
4. Stop the heat, cover, and steam for 20 minutes. Pour tapioca into a sieve and rinse with cold running water.
5. Mix cold tea and cold milk together.
6. Put some Tapioca in a glass, pour some tea to finish.

Ikanago no Kugini 2018

NOW IN SEASON💕


Recipe is HERE:
https://createeathappy.blogspot.jp/2014/03/how-to-make-ikanago-no-kugini-sand-eel.html

"Ikanago no Kugini" (いかなごのくぎ煮) is my favorite Tsukudani (food boiled down in soy sauce) made with Ikanago (sand eel/sand lance).


Ikanago no Kugini is a famous Tsukudani in Hyogo prefecture. My grandma, who lives there cooks a few kilograms of Ikanago no Kugini every year for us in Tokyo.


It is usually cooked and eaten around the end of February or early March, when the fish is about an inch long. After its season, Ikanago goes deep in the sea where is cooler. Then it goes under the sand and aestivate.

This year she sent us in the beginning of March 👍


My son (1 year 3 months) liked it eating with rice 😋

Souvenirs from Hakone



Onsen Manjyu (温泉まんじゅう) is a very popular souvenir from Hakone. It is a soft steamed bun filled with Azuki bean paste. Brown ones are the basic. They were complimentary at the hotel we stayed ;)



Nanohana (菜の花) is very popular for their Onsen Manjyu. Brown ones (Hakone no Otsukisama 箱根のお月さま) expires in 4 days. They also have black ones Gokurosan (ご黒うさん) colored with bamboo charcoal and black sesame seeds. Black ones can be enjoyed for 20 days but before you open the package.





Amanatu Orange Jelly (甘夏ゼリー) is something I found refreshing and nice! It is only sold during summer season.



Kuro Choco (黒チョコ) is black-colored white chocolate with almond which looks like the black egg in Owakudani (大涌谷), where you can find black eggs (a local specialty of eggs hard-boiled in the hot springs). Eating one egg is said to add seven years to your life!!! hehe



We (actually I) enjoyed shopping at Gotemba Premium Outlets, too ;)

La Boutique Du Chocolat 2014: Japanese Chocolate Gift Ideas

On Saturday, my darling and I've been to "La Boutique Du Chocolat" at Printemps in Ginza. It is an event for Valentine's day, selling collections of amazing chocolates with FREE tastings :D



The event was titled "Chocolat qui se merit (Chocolate you deserve)". Nowadays, many girls are getting chocolates for themselves, obviously. hehe



Well, my darling and I don't have a sweet tooth, so we tasted them all but I just bought skeleton patterned chocolates (from Compartes Chocolatier) for my dad. So cute XD



Do you get chocolates for yourself on Valentine's day?!

Souvenirs from Kinugawa Onsen

On the weekend, my family and I went to Kinugawa Onsen to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday!!!

Kinugawa Onsen (鬼怒川温泉) is a popular hot spring resort in the city of Nikkō, Tochigi, Japan. It is located 2 hours by train from Tokyo. BTW, Bento on the train is nice! We always get it at a department store. Not Ekiben! hehe


Not many but there are some amusements such as Tobu World Square (東武ワールドスクエア) and Nikko Edomura (日光江戸村) theme parks.

Here are some souvenirs from the places we went!!!

Tobu World Square (東武ワールドスクエア):
A theme park with more than 100 famous sites from around the world, in 1/25th of the original sizes. You can also enjoy nighttime illumination from 12/1-3/2. It is freezing cold though. haha


Tom and Maimu Colorful Print Cookies (カラフルプリントクッキー)


Kinugawa Confectionery Castle (鬼怒川お菓子の城):
You can taste and buy all sorts of popular Wagashi (traditional Japanese confections) from Kinugawa. It is not a castle-like place, but they have great freshly made sweets!


Top 5

#2 胡麻まんじゅう (Sesame Seed Manjyu)
#3 かりんとうまんじゅう (Deep-Fried Brown Sugar Manjyu)
#4 チーズケーキ (Cheesecake)
#5 塩羊羹 (Salty Yokan)

Nikko Hanaichi-Monme (日光花いちもんめ):
Begonias and more than 600 varieties of flowers are full in bloom all year round. You can also enjoy strawberry picking! I found a Hello Kitty strawberry XD

Tasty Salt for Boiled Egg (ゆでたまごの塩) *you can find at any souvenir shop
マヨネーズ (mayonnaise), 醤油 (soy sauce), 抹茶 (Matcha green tea), ゆず (Yuzu Japanese lemon) and さくら (Sakura cherry blossom).

Tochigi is known for strawberries. Most souvenirs are in PINK :)
