Tea, tea, tea, tea, tea~~~

Man, I was in for coffee (sometimes) and milo (most of the time) and tea… But, I am going to talk about tea today as it bugs my mind recently, especially on their modern display…

For all these while, mamak teh tarik (the pulled tea) had been very popular among all people of all ages and races and of course occupations – college student, university students, uncles, football maniacs and etcetera… At that time, it was simple. Just some tea with some condensed milk and that was it. Some replace the milk with real fresh milk though and some added ginger or cinnamon to it. You should try…

Oh okay, perhaps there are many other types of tea going on at the precise era as well, such as Chinese tea and not to forget about the Englishman tea… But hey, I am talking about popular tea right now? That, in a way, appreciated by all races and ages disregarding of whatever-nots… ^^

Now, in came the modern tea, which are likeable among younger generations, other ages as well, but I** hardly see them… In Penang, there are 3 tea stations that had evolved…

No1: Blog @ Prangin Mall 2nd Floor just outside of S&J Gift Shop – Still quite simple at that time. It is the exact thing that Taiwan bubble milk tea has: flavoured powder, tea (red, green or milk) and ice. Additional add-ons are like nata de coco, pearls and jelly. What I know about it, okay? This is just about the tea part. Nothing else (like Italian Sprite Coke, Chendul blog, Yogurt… nothing of that) TEA ONLY… Can have it occasionally, but not all the time. the flavoured powder is not good…

No2: Happy La Tea @ Queensbay Mall 2nd or 3rd Floor (just beside Maybank) – Much evolved and natural… I love the pandan jelly milk tea and also the red bean pudding milk tea. Yum~~~~ The taste is just nice, not so sweet and you get to chew on all those stuff, like red bean, jelly and all… but, the most evolved creation that they have of tea section is the cream puff cake milk tea. Okay, the name might be a bit out-of-track, but it is really like eating cake oh! They called their tea as “Dessert-drink” which is so true. Here are a few pictures of their creation:

Sorry, but I did not take the picture of pandan jelly one (it is called the pandan milk tea). Love it… It is my favourite…

No3: Chatime @ 1st Avenue just outside of Red Box @ Cloud 8 – I tried only once, but it was really an enjoyable moment. Could have try it several times more. I am a person who loves chocolate more than strawberry… On that day, they have a promotion for strawberry. Skeptical, but willing to try, I ordered the Strawberry Pudding Ea Lait… I think that is what it was called. The experience could not be described in words, but, seriously, I do not hate strawberries then. Haha… ^^ No picture though… was busy slurping on the exciting beverage… Hoho…

Modern tea lovers, you should try it out when you are in Penang… That is for all this round…
