Pleased to discover the taste sensation he’d discovered in China now available in his own hometown, Rev. Smith stopped by a local café today and ordered a pearl milk tea. A combination of hot black tea and sweetened condensed milk, it is often served with lots of soft and gummy black tapioca balls, or “pearls”, which are sucked up with the tea through an extra-wide straw. “Yummy,” stated Smith.
