If Israel is “a land flowing with milk and honey” according to the Bible, then Taiwan is a land flowing with milk and tea. Milk tea is everywhere. Almost every street has a stand that sells endless flavors of milk tea with pearls and tapioca, the type that made Serenitea a cult favorite here in Manila.
One of our favorite milk tea places in Taiwan is Share Tea. They’ve been in business since 1992 and they’re all over Taipei. 🙂
Apparently, customizing the sugar level is usual in Taiwan. Every milk tea stall lets you decide just how sweet you want your order to be. I usually go for 0% to 30%.
I went for the no. 1 bestseller, Milk Tea with Pearls. I noticed that the color is lighter and more milky compared to the Okinawa Milk Tea I always order at Serenitea.
I took my drink back to the hotel since Share Tea is just a stall. There are no seats, tables, or food. They’re just there to dispense yummy drinks. A large size Milk Tea with Pearls costs only NT35 or P52.50, less than half the cost of a large size Okinawa Milk Tea from Serenitea. The taste is milky and creamy, it’s so addictive we ended up having one every night.
I miss Share Tea! If ever you find yourself in Taiwan, do try it out. 😀
UPDATE: Share Tea is now in the Philippines!!!
