Boil the cubed taro root for 20 minutes on medium heat. It should be soft enough to poke through with a fork.
Discard the water. Smash the cooked ground root until an even paste is formed. For a smoother paste, use a food processor or blender. Incorporate the sugar while the paste is still hot. Set aside.
Add your boba to a pot of boiling water. Add 2 tsp of sugar and allow this boil for 5-7 minutes. Once the boba begin to float these are done. Adjust the timing depending on how firm or soft you prefer them. Remove from hot water and set them aside.
Brew the ceylon and let this mix well with fresh ground root paste and condensed milk.
Finally, add the milk and tapioca pearls to the mixture. Serve the taro milk tea hot or cold.
If you have sensitive skin, wear gloves while peeling the ground root to avoid hands getting irritated from saponin.To make this prettier, you can also add the fresh paste to the bottom of the glass first. Then top it off with more milk on the top!
