In search of some odd bottled import tea

by KrazzyJoe » Dec 26th 07 8:56 pm

I really am clueless when it comes to bubble tea but it sounds like this might be what I'm looking for

I had a lovely import drink iced green tea at some cafe. It was one of those silly drinks served with a huge fisher price straw. It was contained plastic cup and covered with a plastic film and flavored with mint and honey.

I'm just looking for this sort of thing on the web for order.

Thanks kindly.

You were drinking boba tea, or "bubble tea." Usually it's made on the spot -- the fat straw was so boba could fit through -- they are tapioca balls. Google "boba tea" or something. I'm not familiar with places that sell it by the bottle.

YOu might want to venture through your local chinese food store. I have seen bubble tea in their drink section. They generally also have some good drinks that will certainly get your interest - green grass jelly drink, turtle shell drink, and my personal favorite, bird nest drink.
