From the geniuses at 50 Lan:
Taiwan is the center of the milk-tea universe. There is ceaseless milk-tea-innovation here. 50 Lan has added all sorts of new variants which didn't exist a couple years ago. Look at this!
...but...WAIT! What's this!?
Yeah...gotta try that ASAP!
Quoting the infinitely-quotable Commander Ed:
Q: How's it taste commander?
A: Tastes incredible TFB!!
If you look carefully at the bottom right side of the menu above, you can see tea options: amounts of sugar and ice. I chose 70 sugar for this, which is 70% of "normal" sugar. Next time, I'll choose 50%. I also chose normal ice.
The effect is a cold, diluted, lightly-sweet tea, that slowly becomes creamier, and sweeter and colder, as the ball of ice cream melts. GENIUS!!!
If you've read this far, then I have a treat for you. I found a bizarrely-wonderful music-video about milk tea. Unfortunately it's stoopid and NSFW (just like me!). However, like a great milk tea, the video is great fun, if not perfectly healthy. This video captures the unpretentious, young-joy of milk-tea culture. If you email me, I'll send you the link. I'm ashamed to admit I've listened to it on loop over a dozen times. Please don't judge :)
