TAIWAN Created on 1980 this drink became so popular that it is now almost considered in Ta´wan as the national drink ! Bubble tea is a mix of green tea or black tea with fruit tastes. It's often drunk in large take-away goblets, its originality coming from the big brown tapioca pearls of the bottom to aspire with a maxi straw. That gives a festive and ludic aspect to the drink.
Bubble tea may be milky or fruity according to your taste, with different flavours (kiwi, qumquat, grenadine, bubbleggum, etc). It's also possible to buy kits to prepare home-made bubble-teas.
