Pearl Milk Tea

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

A trip to the night market is never complete without getting myself something sweet. The usual would be an ice-cream or cendol. But last monday I decided to get bubble tea milk all thanks to sis that kept bugging me to walk the market. Nah! Can't blame her, blame my sweet tooth =)


My sis initially wanted to get the blueberry flavour but ended up adding ice-cream to the mix. There were so many options to choose from I had a tough time deciding what to get. Honeydew, mango or papaya and the list goes on...

Pearl milk tea, also called bubble tea or boba tea is a really popular drink that originated from Taiwan. As the growing demand for this beverage grows, many variants were created. The fruit pearl tea is most apparent in local night markets.

The 'Pearl' of the beverage is typically made of tapioca. But there are other 'add-ons' that are being used such Nata de coco and jelly. I used to really dislike the pearls cos they were sticky and I had a hard time chewing them. The pearls weren't at the right size too, they were slightly larger than the hole of the straw =.="

RM2.70 at my local night market but the price varies among different location. For more info regarding bubble tea click here

My favourite flavour would had to be... hmm... if you have been following my posts you most probably would know =)
So, which flavour suits you best?





~hard time sucking 'em up~

Manglish, its an artificial world out there. From what I know, there are certain variants that uses fresh fruit instead of the instant powdered ones. But yet to try them :P

Brian, i see. Maybe I should try that mix someday =)

William, you are ever so observant. yups, I like Mango flavour best =) But I mixed it with vanilla this time around.
