Yesterday i was with friends at Hamra St. where we were stopped by a Bubble T sales person to try a new drink they just released.
In brief, Bubble tea is a Taiwanese blend based on tea and which was initially invented in Taichung in the 1980s. Most bubble tea recipes contain a tea base mixed/shaken with fruit or milk, to which chewy tapioca balls and/or fruit jellies are often added.
The fruits mixed were strawberry and banana. I actually loved the blend, it was rich and full of flavour that would make you want more and more. Moreover, I experienced this great taste of the tapioca balls that balance the caffeine of the Tea inside the drink.
A great alternative for caffeinated Soda! I sure will try it again :).
