There is a little Taiwanese place in Miraflores, just round the corner of the Ripley department store where I like to go for a non-alcoholic beverage. It's called "Té Burbuja" (sounds funny in Spanish) aka Bubble Tea aka Boba Tea. Before coming to Peru I was not familiar with this drink, although I have heard that it is popular in the States. I never saw it anywhere on sale in Paris, but probably if you know to ask for it you can find it...Anyways, now that I know I would ask!
It is basically green tea (healthy!), served hot or cold (I like cold) with either milk or a fruit flavour: cherry, grapefruit, lucuma, coconut, peach, guanabana...the choices are endless.
The name of the drink comes from the little bubbles inside of the glass: they are tapioca pearls forming bubbles in the drink. It's refreshing, and who can resist those cute koala plastic cups? (I know...not very eco friendly, perhaps I should bring my own mug next time?).
As you can see from the photo, they also sell Asian style snacks and green tea bags. The owner is very friendly and smiley, but don't you EVER call him Chinese, that is not very appreciated!!!
The shop is so small that you can easily miss it, so here's the address: Calle Los Pinos 118, Miraflores.
Enjoy the bubbles!
