No. 297: Bubble Tea
I know bubble tea was invented in Taiwan 30 years ago, but I never tasted it until I moved to Paris. It is a rare treat for me, and deadly calorific, but it is a favorite of Button’s, and we were out-and-about at the Centre Pompidou yesterday, so stopped in for a cuppa.
It is the “bobas” or the small tapioca pearls that she loves and that give the tea its name.
The Chinese prefer the bubble black tea, but I prefer the light almond-milk tea or the mango bubbles. What do you prefer?
