Let’s talk about milk tea!
As a kid, I liked it but I picked the most “standard” flavors ever: strawberry or honeydew. The fruity not-even-tasting-like-the-fruit, overly strong and sweet taste. You’re probably thinking, isn’t black of jasmine/green milk tea more standard? It probably is, but wherever I had it was more bitter and tea-tasting that I hated it and never bothered ordering it. Ever.
Two years ago, I started working at a Taiwanese cafe in the International District and milk tea was the staple drink that every customer ordered. I started drinking milk tea at every shift I had; often trying out new flavors. This, factored in with the fact I started learning how to make the drinks and having to taste test the drinks, started my road to obsession with milk tea.
For a while, I only drank milk tea. It was sweet and I was able to try different flavors in small servings. I realized I had a noticeable weight gain because of though, since the amount of sugar in it is extremely high. Plus, I LOVE the sweet drinks; caramel, caramel pudding, etc. I started cutting back and also started drinking just flavored water/tea.
Anyways! I just wanted to share this~
I love trying new milk tea places so feel free to recommend! And please share your favorite flavors and experience!
