A sad sipdown. I finished off the last of these tea bags today. I depended on it for my quick fix when I couldn’t get good boba, but now it’s all gone. I received this box from a friend, so I don’t know where to get it and I’m feeling kinda too lazy to hunt it down. Maybe when it gets colder I will be more motivated to look. Farewell for now, I enjoyed it while it lasted.
Ok, so I lowered my rating of this tea just a little because the sweetener in the tea leaves a bit of a sticky sugary aftertaste in my mouth (like after you’ve had some really sweet chocolate). This being said, it really hit the spot. I tried yet another milk tea/boba place in Boston that disappointed, so I had to remedy the situation today with this stand-in. Some people may think it’s too sweet, but my sweet tooth really enjoyed it on this cold, windy day.
I don’t taste any rose, but I do taste the fruit… whatever fruit it may be. This isn’t a powdered mix, but rather a teabag with milk powder inside. I’m not sure if the fruit flavor comes from the milk powder or the tea. It is a little weak even if steeped for 5 minutes, so either use a small cup or two teabags. I like to add condensed milk or whole milk to make it richer.
My friends know that it’s no secret that I love myself milk tea/boba. When I moved from an area where I could find at least 3 places to get boba within one block to an area where I can barely find good boba in the city, I was crushed. One of my generous friends sent me a little milk tea/boba care package that included this tea to satisfy my cravings. And I gotta say, I love this tea! Definitely very sweet and creamy, not bitter at all. I love it hot, I love it cold. It’s not as strong as other milk teas that I’ve had, but I’m pretty happy with it!
PS I posted the pic for this tea and it somehow came out sideways.. Sorry about that, not sure how to fix it.
