Recent Tasting Notes
So I actually ordered this like two weeks ago on my way from from the Tea Festival but, as some of you know, I do generally keep a stockpile of photos for instagram and when I don’t have time to do a Gongfu session during the day I usually just post something from my stockpile – and that was the case today w/ this milk/bubble tea. I wanted to wait to write the review until I’d posted about it on instagram, because it’s actually really fucking pretty.
Basically, this is one of the “featured” flavours at PresoTea right now (a bubble tea company in MTL’s Chinatown) and I was curious so I ordered it, with some added pearls because every bubble tea needs pearls. Here’s a picture:
At the bottom you can see the “sakura jelly” – which is basically a mildly sweet and slightly floral cherry jelly that feels kind of like the texture of rainbow jelly, but not really formed into rectangular blocks and just a bit less firm in general. It was really good, and a nice addition to the drink! Added a pop of something fruity, without making it an in your face punch of cherry. The rest of the drink was this sort of creamy, sweet milk that had a bit of a caramelized sugar and weak black tea taste – very good!
The whole thing worked well – it was sweet but not sugary, and I felt like I got a bit of all the different flavour elements I’d want from a bubble tea!
