7 cups of Water
Boil water in a large pot at High temperature.

It's normal to see "Tapioca Pearls" floating in water.
Stir occasionally to prevent Pearls from sticking to together.
Turn off heat after elapsed time and let the pot settle at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Rinse the "Tapioca Pearls" in warm water and drain the water into a large bowl. Add, "Sugar Syrup" or alternatively "Honey Syrup". Make sure to evenly stir the Tapioca Pearls in either solution. Tapioca Pearls have the tendency to stick to each other.
