I'm sure by now that you know that one of life's simplest pleasures that I enjoy is: bubble tea. I love bubble tea because it's tasty, it's inexpensive, and it's simple. Bubble tea is available in an abundance of flavors, style, and colors. If you've read Simple Pleasures: Bubble Tea, the post discusses what is bubble tea and what are my favorite flavors.
In Chinatown, NYC there are many shops where you can get bubble tea and one of my personal favorites have always been Ten Ren's. However, I have to say that's changed since a new franchise has opened up two shops in Chinatown. This franchise is called: Kung Fu Tea.
I haven't tried the other flavors yet, but right now I'm in love with their herbal jelly milk tea. The herbal jelly is really just grass jelly. I've had grass jelly with soy milk before, but never grass jelly with milk tea.
The first time I tried it, I instantly fell in love with the drink. It's absolutely tasty, lightly sweetened, and has a distinctive flavor. It's new, different, and unlike any other milk bubble tea I've had before.
The next flavors I hope to try are: longan honey tea, jelly wow milk, and coffee milk tea. Kung Fu Tea's selection and products are quite different from most bubble tea shops I've been to because they don't offer a lot of fruit flavored drinks, but I think it's still great.
What is your favorite bubble tea and toppings?
