Last week, Jenny and I, went to Bubbleology to try it out. We expected a cold tea with bubbles bursting of flavour, and were actually slightly disappointed.
There were two types of tea to choose from; milky or fruity, with lot’s of different flavours like mango, strawberry, caramel, chocolate… The same type of bubbles were added to the teas if one didn’t request any of the special ones at the counter. We tried the regular thing, one mango and one passionfruit and were sorry to discover that the tapioca bubbles (more like a chewy ball actually) were quite slimy and didn’t taste much.
I loved the big straws though, which easily carried the bubbles (boba, I’ve been told they’re called) to your mouth. But after having enjoyed half the tea, we were a bit bored of the bubbles. Not even the tea on it’s own was that nice, it tasted more like squash with a bitter tea-after taste.
However, it was fun to try, and checking out all the Asians drinking the milky versions, we felt that maybe we could give it another go.
