Confession🤫 it’s the pearls in the bubble tea that I’m drawn to. The chewy, gnawing of the tapioca pearls 珠珠. They call these chewy spring-y toppings “QQ” in Taiwan. Some brands give a small price adjustment if you bring your own tumbler. It’s also environmental friendly.
According to various sources, a typical 500ml milk tea with tapioca pearls consists of 325 calories. A healthy snack has 150 to 300 calories. So opt for no or less sugar!
Which is your favorite bubble tea?
