I finally tried Bubble Tea. Strange experience, and can't say I'll have it again. But I've been wanting to try these pop culture drinks for a few years. I was in Seattle yesterday and many shops advertised them in their windows. Lucky me, the one place we ran into to grab lunch had bubble tea, and I took the opportunity right then and there.
The "bubbles" in bubble tea come from the dark tapioca balls that gather at the bottom. The straw is especially wide so that you can suck up the tapioca. The flavors vary, and lychee and green tea were my options, along with watermelon, cantaloupe, and many other fruit flavors. I opted for pink. Which I believe was watermelon. Super sugary sweet, it's definitely a drink a child would like. If that child likes sugary sweet. Hello Kitty would have looked perfectly happy and at home on the side of that cup.
Yum, bubble tea.
