It's great yes, but I've had enough, methinks. It was a huge fad in this region for the past eighteen months, with outlets springing up everywhere. Then it died out. I still have some occasionally but not as much as before.

P.S. I don't know about pearls being harmful, but I love those.

I think it's one of those things you should have once in a while so you don't get sick of it.

I love bubble tea. I love to have a cup of these after school. It's became a regular drink for us I think...

My favourite is coconut + 'pearls'
and together with a piece of toast

I hate it with a passion.

Those bubbles are slimy - in fact, they taste like somebody left bits of licorice to soak in water overnight. Ick.

I have a friend who is obsessed with everything Asian. One day he took me out for bubble tea, and when I asked what the bubbles were made of, he said "frog eyes" and I believed him! (well, if he eats chicken feet at dim sum, it wan't a long shot...)...of course, he then told me what they were.

I really enjoyed the tea part, but the bubbles....I really don't like the texture. They do taste like eyes to me!

Yeah, I haven't figured out why they even put them in there. Can you order it without them? What is their purpose, anyway?

I tried bubble tea years ago when I was still in Asia. They came in all funky colors and flavors. Pretty good, but those big straws are a safety hazard. You can choke on the damn tapioca balls.
