I found a can of tapioca milk tea at a certain apparel shop in Harajuku. I actually bought it and drank it. The price is 180 yen per bottle (excluding tax).
Ingredients are sugar, tapioca, milk powder and black tea. It seems to be a "CHIAO KUO" brand product sold by a beverage manufacturer in Taiwan.
When I pour it into a glass ... that? Doesn't it contain tapioca? I thought, but apparently the one used is white tapioca. From the package illustration, I just thought that black tapioca was used. Black tapioca is often used in drinks sold in Japan these days.
Tapioca, which is shaped like a drop, has a konjac-like texture that is like konjac jelly. There is no chewy texture, and it is rather plump. The smoothness that slides smoothly on the tongue is comfortable.
Milk tea has a refreshing taste than expected. It is fluffy and sweet, leaving the moist and gorgeous flavor of black tea after drinking. The taste is mellow and very easy to drink! It is recommended to cool it down before enjoying it.
Canned tapioca milk tea with a soft and crunchy texture. It may be interesting to compare it with tapioca sold at tapioca drink stores. Why don't you pick it up when you see it?
