The pick simply proves my perennial saying: 7-11 & drink shops are Taiwan’s best symbols! 😛
Lip-smacking thirst quenchers from around the globe. Which is your favorite?
25. Bubble tea, Taiwan
More bubble than tea, this is a tea-slash-milk-slash-fruit drink and its most famous variety includes chewy “pearls,” resembling oversized frogspawn, at the bottom that you suck up with an oversized straw.
It sounds weird, but it has become a favorite drink snack among Asia’s millions of young shoppers.
Besides “pearl” milk tea, made of tapioca, I like 5 of the others on the list:
50. Mango lassi, India
39. Scotch whisky, Scotland
36. Martini, United States
34. Champagne, France
32. Baileys Original Irish Cream, Ireland
