Herbal teas, flower teas, fruit teas, green tea, red, white and black tea. You probably think there isn't any kind of tea left. A.K.Srikanth, CEO of Alchemist Foods, has now brought the Taiwanese bubble tea brand Chatime to India.
WHAT IS IT?
A frothy tea drink from Taiwan that comes in milk and citrus variants and is served with crushed ice. These freshly brewed teas offer a healthy respite from sugar-heavy, aerated drinks and calorieladen smoothies.
IS THAT CAVIAR IN THERE?
No, the stuff at the bottom of the glass is tapioca pearls, a common ingredient in South East Asian desserts that reminds one of falooda-style deserts. These are chewy and so contrast the texture and flavour of the drink beautifully.
