Pearl Milk Tea

Unexpected fact #254 that I didn’t know about Taiwan before arriving: pearl milk tea (often called bubble tea elsewhere in the world) was invented here in the 1980s, though you’ll have to take your pick of which specific origin story to accept. I’m definitely enjoying it’s relative ubiquity in Taipei. Aside from coffee, this is pretty much my favorite beverage, especially here where I can order it only slightly sweet.
