bubble tea

one of my favorite beverages is bubble tea!!! it’s a drink from asia that consists of tea, condensed milk and tapioca balls(bubbles)… however, you can get different kinds with different flavors… pictured here is a mango icy bubble drink (kinda like a slurpee with tapioca balls)…


normally you’d have to find a good Chinatown to get some good bubble tea, but times are changin’ and it’s starting to pop up in areas that simply have high asian populations… also, various Thai restaurants have been offering bubble drinks in addition to normal menu items… the best bubble tea in the area can be found at Waku Waku Tea House in Windsor, but much to my delight, Orchid Thai on Monroe at the bottom of the Compuware building just opened up and they serve some pretty good bubble tea too… right in the heart of downtown Detroit!!!

so next time your near Campus Martius or are at a Thai restaurant, try some bubble tea!!! a lot of people think bubble tea will be gross, but once they try it they like it… i thought it would be gross because i don’t like tapioca, but once i gave it a try, i found myself craving it!!! give bubble tea a shot some time, you might be pleasantly surprised!!!
