I ordered the black tea from the Bubble Tea Licious truck in Washington, D.C. It has milk, so it’s really a standard milk tea with pearls. The milk tea itself is nice and frothy, like the old Java and Cha bubbleteas in Plano, but I’d probably prefer it a little less sweet. The bubbles/pearls are okay, with the right amount of chewiness; however, they lack flavor. The Jumbo Jumbo Asia Taste pearls were far better in comparison.
It was five dollars, the price of two bubbleteas or one beef noodle soup in Houston. This is D.C. though, and for D.C. it’s not too bad. (Remember that a pumpkin spice latte across the street is also about five dollars.)
The classic bubbletea from Jumbo Jumbo Asia Taste, the more northern location in Rockville. This time it’s actually pretty good! The tapioca balls were appropriately chewy and delicious. Mmm.
Delicious milk tea alongside beef noodle soup from Jumbo Jumbo on Rockville Pike. (Belated post)
Hong Kong milk tea from Asia Bakery Cafe in Rockville. Solid! Tastes just like the one from Boba Latte!
Almond milk tea from Asia Taste Jumbo Jumbo in northern Rockville. Not very cold, milk tea not very strong… it’s okay.
Milk tea from jumbo jumbo in Rockville, MD.
Warning! please chew the pellets completely befor swallowing
Normal bubbletea at a dumpling shop in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong. Standard and tasty, around average. Cheap, especially with the dumplings.
Coconut milk tea from Tea Neck Court in Westfield Montgomery Mall in Maryland. Pretty solid. (Belated post)
A few delicious teas I had in the Bay Area over the past few days.
From top to bottom:
- Milk tea with custom sinkers at Honeyberry, San Mateo. Not bad but a bit sweet with all the stuff I added. The picture to the right shows the customization options you have there.
- Ceylon milk tea at Ocha in Foster City. Interesting twist, not bad.
- A tasty barley milk tea with pearls at Tea Era in Mountain View. The tapioca was perfect.
