Milk tea has been a trend long time ago, but this season, I feel that it really reached its highest peak, seeing so more and more established stores selling milk tea. Will people get sick of drinking this? Me? walang sawaan! :)
I have been drinking green tea since I was in high school. And it seems my palate gets more and more intrigued with other drinks. My eldest sister was the one who introduced this drink to us. Milk tea stores were not that popular at that time I think. My sister usually buys her milk tea in a convenient store, particularly 7/11. Among their beverages, this certain milk in a bottle can be found there and whenever my sister sees one, she would get 10 bottles! They are easily sold out, that's why my sister's action was like that. =p I didn't like it at first taste, because I find it bitter -I love sweets (sweet tooth., ). And when milk tea wagon got its destination in our school, it became a staple in my everyday routine. Zen Tea was my favorite milk tea store before. I love it because of its milky taste and you still taste the tea but it is not bitter. It is more on the milky and sweet side. Then everytime I see stores selling milk tea, it just became a habit.
These are the stores I have visited and tried. I am not into fancy drinks. I usually buy the Original Milk Tea (labeled as Tapioca, pearl milk tea, Assam Milk tea, Nai- Cha)
version. No chocolate flavor, caramel, or any fancy ingredients. Though I have tried some flavors, I always stick to my original milk tea.
