The [Milk] Tea Thread

#22

NT19 in Danshui offers a Brandy Milk Tea. The Brandy is real. $50


#23

I’m confused, is it 19NT or 50NT for this Brandy Milk Tea. Either or, it’s a steeeeal.


#24

NT19 is the name of the teashop. The price is in TWD cause…you know…in Taiwan.

EDIT: I finally see the confusion now…

NT19 was the price of their cheapest tea. Bog standard green tea or black tea. $19

Tea is good, coffee is not.

I was tempted to try Tiger Sugar today. But the line was too long so I ended up picking a high mountain oolong tea :no_mouth:


#27

Why black tea is called red tea in Chinese? :thinking:


#28

Same reason brown sugar is called black sugar?


#29

Red is brewed color, black is dried leaf color.


#30

as for milk tea, the stronger hong kong style is my preference. if i get a bubble tea here or one of those trendy brown sugar bubble milks its more like a desert, something to have now and then.
nothing beats a pot of oo long tea though.

Interesting…


#32

Most black (red) teas taste like tobacco to me.


#33

Wait a second, why don’t make smokes out of black tea leaves!


#34

Because black tea doesn’t have Nicotine?


#35

Who says? It has caffeine!


#36

And caffeine can be overdosed in this way.


#37

Kids, don’t smoke your tea.


#38

OK, we try Black Oolong first!


#39

There are better things to smoke.


#40

I can’t drink milk tea with real milk. Lactose intolerance.

But sometimes…
