Once summer weather rolls around, many people in Houston turn to cold beverages like bubble tea, smoothies, and iced tea to keep cool. Another option that is a summertime favorite for many is Thai iced tea.
Thai iced tea is sweet and refreshing, and if you’ve yet to give it a try, then it may become your warm-weather go-to. Thai iced tea is made with black tea and a mixture of spices, such as star anise, clove, and cardamom. The tea is brewed in hot water, sweetened with sugar, and then allowed to steep and cool. Later, the spiced black tea is mixed with milk or creamer and then served over ice. This sweet, spicy, and cold drink can be the pick-me-up that you need on a hot afternoon.
At Happy TeaHouse & Café , we serve a selection of cold drinks that include bubble tea and smoothies in Houston. Please call (713) 469-3275 for information about our menu and tea house hours.
Have you ever tried boba tea or a smoothie that was flavored with taro? If not, then you’re in for a treat. Like a potato, taro is a root vegetable, and it’s used extensively in African, South American, and Asian cuisine. Watch this video to learn about the differences between potatoes and taro.
Taro has a sweet and nutty flavor and a soft, custard-like texture when cooked. This root vegetable is commonly used in baked goods, but it can be enjoyed in the same ways that potatoes and sweet potatoes are.
Happy TeaHouse & Café offers a selection of delicious, cold drinks made with taro. If you’re interested in giving this popular flavor a try, then come and see us at our tea house in Houston or call (713) 469-3275 to learn more.
Called bubble tea and pearl tea by others, boba tea is a beverage that has several names and comes in many flavors. What boba tea is most known for, however, is the layer of chewy, tapioca pearls that fill the bottom of the cup and make the drink unique among beverages.
Watch this video to see people try their first boba tea. Some individuals find that the tapioca pearls are better suited to some flavors than to others. Also, how much someone loves their boba tea often depends on the flavor that they try. With so many options to choose from, you’re sure to find at least one favorite.
