Haha! Well, you could always try blending up some anko in a slush and having that over boba! xD

YAY BOBA :D
I should add that it is very essential to stir when boiling the boba, otherwise it sticks to the bottom of the pot like no other :x

Hmm, I never have any problems with it. I stir it until they all float, and then cover it and leave it be for as long as 40 minutes.

Maybe you're not using enough water, so they can't all make it to the top?

Maybe, the pot was rather small. Or perhaps the heat was too high :shrug:

Your hands are so small.

I have noticed this before, but man your hand looks tiny in the picture of the melon essence.

also I remember the frozen boba incident

Thanks for making this.....I love boba <3

But my family's really picky on what place they buy their boba from, good thing we live near asian stores. My mom refuses to buy boba from Lollicup because she believes they use "artifical powder" and not the "all natural" good stuff.

Well I think it's cause the authentic ones have more flavor in them and are yummy. :D Love boba with Thai tea.

It really doesn't matter to me where its from, just as long as it tastes good. I think I'll try and make my own now, seeing as the stores just three blocks away :meow:

Hee! See, this is what I mean about how malleable the recipe is. Everybody can customize it to their exact tastes. ^_^

And it's so super easy to make! Honestly, if you've got asian markets just a couple streets over there's no reason not to give it a whirl. ^__^
