15 years ago, Bubble Pearl Milk Tea used to be a premium tea where it would cost around S$4 (Singapore Dollars) and nowadays you can get it for S$1 in Singapore. Recently, I have introduce my son to bubble milk tea when we were in London Chinatown. That cost us around £3.50 for a small cup.
What makes the tea so unique is the pearl itself. My friend used to believe that the pearl is in fact is frogs’ eggs. I can reassure you that it is made from tapioca. They are chewy and slightly sweet.
So last week, while Ms C went to Birmingham Eye Hospital for her scan, we popped by to Wing Yip Chinese supermarket to do some shopping. I bought Teh Tarik (3 in 1 Malaysian Tea) and ready made tapioca balls.
