I’m not going to spend too much time on today’s post. My family and I went out to see the Zookeeper. But before that, we stopped by and ate lunch at the mall. So thirsty from the heatwave, I decided to try Bubble Tea for the first time. What is it? Bubble Tea is a pearl milk tea drink originating from China. The drink comes in a variety of flavors like mango, strawberry, taro (that’s what I had!)…and is served with ice and tapioca balls. The straws are huge so that you can suck up these tapioca pearls which taste like chewy gelatin/rice balls. I had taro, which is purple, mainly because I knew it was going taste like Ube. Ube is purple yam that is prepared in a variety of ways as a filipino dessert. Yum! Now I believe all the hype and am ready to taste all the rest of the flavors! What is your favorite bubble tea flavor?
Lesson Learned: I don’t know what it took me so long to try this, or rather something new. If you hear the hype about something, check it out. There is a reason why things get popular. You may be missing out.
