Sherman's Food Adventures: Little Tea House

Little Tea House

Once again, I was at Metrotown running some errands. I really don't like the crowds and parking can be an issue sometimes. However, it's a good one-stop shop. I had to make a stop at Stupidstore (Superstore) to pick up some groceries. I was walking by the meat section and noticed that all the meat is now AAA. Well, I guess they finally had to get with the program, since all the other grocery stores carry AAA beef. But, I will still get my beef from Costco, or better yet, from a real butcher.

Once I had finished paying, Viv met up with me (she was shopping elsewhere in the mall) and we both stopped simultaneously in front of Little Tea House. We both had the bubble tea urge. Yes, it's a strange feeling, but suddenly, you feel like you want a drink you can chew... We usually don't get our bubble tea from here; however, it was for convenience sake. We decided on sharing a fresh mango slush with coconut jelly. Before I was finished taking the picture of the pearls and jellies, the drink was ready. That was lightning quick!

The slush was very mild, it didn't appear that they added any simple syrup to it. This is a good thing, since the coconut jelly and liquid is pretty sweet by itself. There was plenty of mango flavour (some fibres too). The drink was slightly icy; yet it was still quite smooth. Mixed with the coconut jelly, there was just the right amount of sweetness. We really hate super-sweet bubble teas. Although this is not our first choice for bubble tea, it was satisfying.

The Good:
- Not too sweet
- Service was lightning fast

The Bad:
- A tad icy
- Limited choices
