Chunshui Tang

This

is what I had for tea today.

No, it’s not some amber ale. It’s an iced tea from Chunshui Tang, where I went with an old friend for an afternoon drink. Chunshui Tang is most famous for being the original bubble tea place — that sugary sweet drink that is quite popular. I find it rather too sweet for my taste, so I opted for a “charcoal roasted oolong” with no sugar or ice. I wanted to see what they use as tea before adding anything to it.

Hardly any charcoal roasted flavour, and worst of all, a bit on the sour side. Who am I kidding? This stuff is meant for adding stuff with, not drinking on its own.

It’s also incredibly large (I should’ve ordered a small). I drank about half and the caffeine really hit… no more, my body says.

It was nice though, and the head — it stayed throughout the whole session without budging. I’m not sure exactly how they do it. I think they shake the tea vigorously to get the foam, but I don’t know how it stays on there — it’s sort of like the head of a stout, which doesn’t really go away no matter what you do. It’s an odd thing, really.
