If you’re not familiar with bubble tea, then you don’t have to worry. This tasty drink is a favorite treat across Asia and throughout the Asian diaspora, especially here in America. You might see popular bubble tea chains popping up near you, and have finally decided to give it a try. If you’re a new to drinking this tea, here are four exciting flavors to liven up your taste buds.
Sometimes, the most basic offering is the simplest and easiest option to try. Plain old milk tea is black tea mixed with milk and your choice of topping – either jelly or the iconic tapioca pearl. Chances are, the first time you try anything out of your comfort zone, you want the least adventurous choice. Ardent fans of breakfast tea will delight in this flavor, especially if it’s the first time they’re trying it.
Perhaps you’re in the mood for some bubble tea that has a brighter profile and fruitier taste than standard black tea? In that case, you should get yourself some mango bubble tea. Sometimes, you might see these drinks offered as mango smoothies with bubbles, but don’t be confused or discouraged. Mango lovers will get a kick out of this flavor for sure.
Taro tea is without a doubt a more exotic variant. For those who want a big kick of sweeter tea, then taro bubble tea is the right drink for you. Taro, or taro root, might be something that is mysterious but that assumption doesn’t have to get in the way of you trying something new. After all, you might end up having regrets later on when you come across a flavor you don’t care for as much, and leave with a craving for something unexpected.
If you need something to cool off the spice of pad Thai, then maybe you could sip some Thai milk tea. This flavor of bubble tea is often sold as “That iced tea” or simply “Thai tea”, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a different animal. Its vibrant orange color is eye-catching for sure and can increase your credibility as a food aficionado (a “foodie) on your preferred social media outlet to make all of your friends and followers crave some.
