Now that there is nicer weather I see a lot of people walking around the streets of NYC sipping bubble teas - you know, the ones with the big tapioca pearls in them.
Is there anywhere in the NYC area that I can get a kosher bubble tea? I'd like to try it. Googling recipes seems like there should be no problem with the actual ingredients unless somehow those tapioca balls had something in them.
A few years ago I bought a bag of large pearl tapioca at Mizrach u'Ma'arav at 47 Agrippas in Yerushalayim. They were not black, and I have never used them, but they look like they should be usable for this purpose. I know this won't help the OP looking for a place here in NYC, but perhaps it might help someone else who chances upon this thread.
