We have a friend named BorTing. When he would come over to our house he would bring these weird tea drinks from Chinatown. The first time I had it, I wasn't really sure how I felt about it. But the last time he brought one over I decided I really liked it and I might want to have it again.
Here's a little background just in case you didn't know...there's one little part of Houston called Chinatown. You can find these teahouses on every corner.
I started my new job a few weeks ago and I started driving through Chinatown every day. I had the urge the other day to stop and grab one of those funky teas I mentioned above, but was too scared to stop in because I wasn't sure what to order. I sent a text to our friend and asked him what it is he brought over and the next day, I had this in my hand...
I think this is one of my new favorite things. It's Tapioca Milk Tea. Ok, the tapioca balls take some getting used to, but I found myself picking the tapioca balls out of the bottom of the cup to eat even when all my tea was gone. I'm not sure what it is about this stuff because I'm not a big tea drinker, but when it's mixed with the milk and tapioca, it's oh so good! This teahouse is going to be a dangerous thing for me on my home from work every day! This particular teahouse I stopped in had a HUGE menu and I can't wait to try some of their other flavors of teas, slushies, smoothies, and fruit gels. YUM!
