  3. Boil the water: Bring the water to a boil in a large pot.
  4. Add the tapioca pearls: Add the tapioca pearls to the boiling water, stirring gently to prevent sticking.
  5. Cook the tapioca pearls: Cook the tapioca pearls for 10-15 minutes or until they are soft and chewy.
  6. Rinse the pearls: Rinse the cooked tapioca pearls in cold water to remove excess starch.
  7. Add sugar: While the pearls are still warm, add a simple syrup or honey to sweeten them. You can also add flavorings like vanilla extract or matcha powder at this stage.
  8. Store the pearls: Store the cooked tapioca pearls in the simple syrup or honey in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use.
