MMM.... - Tina Marie's Ramblings
Red hair and black leather, my favorite colour scheme...
...Tapioca balls. In creamy tea.

I hear they've been the hot thing in Asia for years, but they're just hitting Houston. I read about them on houston.eats, and dragged the SO out to Chinatown to get some a few weeks ago.

He said they tasted like "tasteless snot", and refused to go back. I loved them. I love the way they feel rolling around on my tongue, I like the taste, and I love the zillion choices of flavors.

They opened a place that sells them about 10 minutes from the office. I took Mike with me today, and he at least seemed to like them.

I think it's going to become the default afternoon snack.

Why does it not surprise me that he described them as tasteless snot? :-) I wouldn't have expected anything else from him

On a totally unrelated note, whilst looking to see how much Slingsby Dart gliders sell for, I saw that Slingsby based in Kirkbymoorside, Yorkshire also built HP-14 gliders. Of course, true to British style, they buggered it up in the process (see http://www.soaridaho.com/Schreder/HP-14/HP-14c/Hp14V_C.htm ). How they could make beautiful gliders like the Dart and at the same time totally bugger up a perfectly good glider like the HP-14 beats me.

Re: Heh

Never underestimate the stupidity of humans. :)

BTW, in another unrelated note, I'm going to try to set up SpamAssassin on my home box (now a test box). We'll see how it goes.

"bubble tea" has been available in Asian restaurants on the East Coast for several years, and there are also yuppie snack stands in some locations that seem to sell nothing but bubble tea and similar flavored-tea/chai drinks.

it's not the tapioca pearls i object to, it's the sweetness, creaminess, and flavors added to the tea. i don't like chai; i'm not even all that fond of Earl Grey. the only thing i want in my tea is tea.
