Grabbed this at the mall today while I was out shopping for comic books; it jumped out at me because I’ve not seen BPF offered at other Chatime locations before. I got mine with pearls and coconut jelly, because mango and coconut are such an incredible combination. It was actually probably the most beautiful bubble tea I’ve ever ordered…
In terms of taste, I couldn’t bring myself to swirl the tea together to combine the flavours because it would have ruined how insanely pretty the drink was. So, I got two distinct “halves” to this bubble tea – one that was thicker and sweeter, with a sort of mango syrup flavour that reminded me of the mango sauce that I’ve been served over vanilla ice cream from Indian cultural events when living in Regina. The coconut jelly was also sweet, and it complimented so well – strengthening the Indian cuisine type of flavour profile I felt I was experiencing.
The top half? Well, it was just chilled butteryfly pea flower tea – which is not the worst tasting thing in the world, but also really not the best either. It tastes like water, if the water was too mineral forward and also kind of stagnant.
Still worth it, though.
