    Default Bubble Tea

    I was looking through the album and someone's picture reminded me of something.

    I spent a couple of weeks in and around Toronto in August. One day, I was on a date and we wandered into Chinatown (or whatever Toronto's Chinese district is called). There was a street festival going on (we hadn't known about it previously) so we decided to stay. As we were wandering down the street, we saw this little shop that sold something called "bubble tea." Neither of us had heard of it before, so we decided to go inside. We tried it and we both instantly fell in love with it. It was mildly sweet and fruity and incredibly refreshing, and it came in a ton of different flavours. Well, we finished up and left and started wandering again, and we saw another shop that sold bubble tea. We decided it was so good the first time, we'd have some more. To keep it short, whenever we saw bubble tea that day, we bought some.

    Who else has tried this delicious drink, and what do you think of it?

    It used to be very popular across Asian countries and there are stores for it all over the place.

    But now the trend had died and a lot of bubble tea stores had closed down.

    BUBBLE TEA YOU SAY?
    One of the best drinks out there! It's like ice tea with different flavors and the 'bubbles' are like sago balls but slightly bigger.
    My favorite is strawberry bubble tea! <3
    The best bubble tea hails from Singapore! If you ever go there be sure to try some! :D

    Citrus Fruits
    Y SO SRS ?

    Never heard of it. I don't know if that exists in Canada. I would probably try it out if it was.

    Mmmm.. I have had that before, and yes, it exists in Canada. I rteally loved the first sip, but then after I found it got kinda repetitive, and threw it at an ancient Chinese master, who then proceeded to drink it. We were both happy.
    Sig please.
