Although it depends on personal preference, many people find that some flavors are better suited for milk tea than others. Some examples of popular milk tea flavors include green bean, red bean, coconut, avocado, almond, coffee, matcha green tea, taro, Thai tea, and mocha. There are also fruit flavors that go well with milk, such as honeydew, papaya, pineapple, orange, strawberry, mango, and peach.
