I hope you're all having a wonderful week. I'm feeling a little injured because I was very bad and forgot to warm up properly before playing sport (I know...really bad and stupid, and my fault entirely :() ...
Badness aside however, I had my first bubble tea experience! As a lot of people had been going on about it, and as I would always get a shocked reaction whenever I said that I'd never had one, I thought it best to check what all the hype was about. Sooo we went to the one nearest at the time, which was Soho.
In all honesty, I was a bit dubious when I saw the shop from the outside, as all I saw was test tubes which seemed quite dusty. It kind of reminded me of the room Harry ended up in when he said 'diagonally' in Harry Potter. But then again I had never heard of Bubbleology (I know I know, where have I been;p) and didn't realise that that was the actual shop. Anyway we went in and I must say, it looked really awesome. The Bubbleologists were all in lab coats - test tubes were bubbling, and fumes were everywhere.
The first drinks I saw were these colourfully clear ones, which I was really drawn to (found out they were Fruit Teas after haha), but wasn't too keen on the pearls (which is stupid of me as that's the whole point of bubble tea...oh dear haha). Anyway in the end, I just went for a safe plain Assam.
After taking a sip or two, and having some pearls, in all honesty, I wasn't wowed by it (I know I must be crazy as everyone loves them!). I think it was the hype over them that set my expectations really high, and I didn't realise the pearls would be squidgey haha. But the overall experience was good. I think, however, it was more so that I found the little writings around the shop really interesting and funny.
Maybe if I chose another flavour I'd change my mind...we'll see. Have any of you guys had bubble tea? If so, which one do you like or would recommend? :)
Anyway take care everyone and speak soon :)
