Two Days of Ten Ren

Having Ten Ren bubble tea twice in a row totally cured my legit bubble tea deprivation in Philly. I know I haven’t posted about it yet, but Ten Ren is my absolute favorite bubble tea house ever. Its bubble tea has a genuine soothing tea flavor, which I suppose has to do with its background of selling tea leaves and ginseng.

I usually get the shaved ice because it’s the best, but since the days are getting colder I decided to stick with regular tea. Yesterday I ordered a small cup of black sesame bubble tea, my non-fruit favorite. The bubbles were as sweet and delicious as I remembered, although mushier than usual. Still, the tapioca retained the chewy elasticity characteristic of Ten Ren’s bubbles! The tea itself was rather disappointing, because despite its Ten Ren-ness and black sesame savory-sweetness, the tea was sort of watered down… Well, it still beat Green Land.

Unsatisfied with my experience yesterday, I decided to go back to the same Ten Ren today with two of my high school friends. This time I ordered a large peach (yay, my favorite!) with jellies instead of tapioca. (I actually really wanted a mix of both tapioca and jellies but I didn’t have change for the extra 50-cents.) The good thing about getting jellies instead of tapioca is that they are lighter on the stomach and teeth. They complemented the  sweet peachiness quite well. I still wish I had some bubbles in there as well. Next time I’ll remember to bring an extra 50 cents with me.

Peach Bubble Tea, or should I say Peach Jelly Tea. Yes, I do color coordinate my straw with my drink.

Grade: A+ bubble tea!!! Well actually I think the Flushing one is more like an A compared to the Chinatown one. (They have better bubbles I think.)

Conclusion: Go to NYC for bubble tea until I find a good place in Philly.

    Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different
    web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a reasonable price?

    Many thanks, I appreciate it!
