For those hot summer days, that old
favorite, Pearl Milk Tea ( "zhen zhu nai cha"
or Bubble Tea) can't be beat. An ice-cold, sweet tea
( with less sugar than a typical soft drink) that has
giant tapioca balls at the bottom, consumed through
an extra-wide straw, this is a drink that is now becoming
popular all over the world. Not only that but, when
it's too hot to eat, that tapioca will help keep you
going during a busy day. There are literally thousands
of places around Taipei to get hold of this wonderful
drink but one place we'd recommend is Ichiban, located
in the busy area surrounded by DunHua, XinYi and AnHe
roads. The drink is made to perfection, the staff are
wonderfully friendly and they also offer a wide range
of other refreshing tea drinks (prices NT$20-NT$45).
The Pearl Milk Tea sells for NT$25.
