I don’t understand the obsession of many with milk tea. I’ve had them before but I just don’t get what’s so good with it other than loaded with sugar. Speaking of sugar, even foreigners/tourists are obsessed judging by queues on Tiger Sugar.
Well locals are obsessed with teas. It’s like the coffee version in here. My co workers either dribk their own brewed tea or they have cold fruit teas.
Perhaps share your stories on the subject and what’s your fave flavor. For me, when in doubt I go for taro/matcha flavor. For teas, most of the time, I go for green. Annoying thing for me is I have weak bladder so I need to have a few trips to toilet if I am drinking tea.
I love all tea, but I favor green teas, especially jasmine green. High mountain oolong a close second. Prefer hot.
I think it’s strange to add sugar to green or oolong, but sometimes in the summer when I’m too hot and need something refreshing, I like to have them mixed with orange juice or grapefruit juice. But it’s important to me that I can still taste the tea, and it’s not just a diluted juice. Only one spot does it right for me so far. I get the minimum amount of sugar possible with those drinks, just enough to cancel out the sourness. Most places will do 10% sweet if you know how to ask; 1分甜.
I also really like herbal teas in general. I drink a variety of those and ginger tea a lot in the winter when it’s 7PM and I want to feel warm but don’t want any caffeine. I just love tea!
my favorite tea place is ChunShuiTang. imo it’s the best milk tea i’ve ever had(to be fair, i only drink it on rare occasions). last time i had a passion fruit green tea drink that was also great. and don’t forget to order the kung fu noodles.
