- Boil the taro in a small pot of water until the flesh has become soft and tender. Transfer the drained taro cube into a blender along with the milk, water, and sugar, and blend until smooth. Set aside.
- To prepare the pearls, in a large pot, boil water and cook the tapioca pearls following packet instructions, or until they become soft and chewy. When they have reached the desired texture, remove them from the pot and drain them, reserving 1 tbsp of the starchy water.
- Transfer the drained pearls into a small mixing bowl and add in the brown sugar and the reserved starchy water, and mix until the sugar has dissolved.
- In a tall serving glass, spoon some of the pearls into the bottom of the glass and then pour in some of the taro milk. Serve!
